Director General’s Message


It gives me great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all participants of the World Amateur Inter Team Golf Championship 2013, better known as WAITGC. This year, we are pleased to celebrate the zo” anniversary of this homegrown golf event, which Tourism Malaysia has proudly organised since 1994.

For WAITGC 2013, we have selected another twelve exciting golf courses for participants to test their skills over six preliminary rounds. Designed by well known golf course architects like Max Wexler, Ross Watson, Ted Parslow and Graham Marsh, these selected courses are both challenging and enjoyable.

Every year, WAITGC attracts more than 500 players and golf enthusiasts from all over the world. We hope the event will continue to showcase Malaysia’s wonderful golf and tourist attractions to the world. The organisation of this year’s WAITGC is special as it is a prelude to the celebration of Visit Malaysia Year in 2014.

In conclusion, I hope that all the participants of WAITGC 2013 will have an enjoyable time and unforgettable memories of teeing off at some of Malaysia’s best golf courses and the country’s many treasures.

On that note, I would like to wish all the participants of WAITGC2013 the best of luck and may all of you have a pleasant stay in Malaysia.


Thank you.

Director General, Tourism Malaysia
