WAITGC is Tourism Malaysia’s initiative to promote the country as a top-of-mind golf destination in the region, attracting more than 500 international amateur golfers and spouses annually. Since its debut in 1994, WAITGC has emerged as a well-regarded tournament, and it is one of the most highly anticipated golfing events in the region. WAITGC is managed by the Golf Club Managers Association of Malaysia (GCMAM) and sanctioned by the Malaysian Golf Association (MGA).

To golfers, WAITGC is more than just a platform for them to compete against golfers from other countries; it is also a perfect holiday package, where they get to visit some of the country’s best tourist destinations.

Golf tourism has been identified as one of the key sectors to increase the nation’s tourism contribution to the economy, and has been outlined as part of the country’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). Golf tourism receipts amounted to RM312 million in 2015, making it a strong contributor to the nation’s economy.
