Drive for the Prize

Claus Weidner, President and CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia with the MercedesTrophy 2018 Hole-in-One Grand Prize for each round, a Mercedes-Benz E 200 Avantgarde Line.

For years, Mercedes-Benz hosted the MercedesTrophy, a premium tournament series for customers worldwide to express their passion for golf. For 2018, the MercedesTrophy will return for its 28th year in Malaysia and 29th year worldwide, accumulating over a million customers and fans that have teed off at the annual event.

Like our products, golf is a game of perfection, each and every stroke has to be perfect each and every time. This strong connection between the game and our brand has led to the active involvement of Mercedes-Benz in this sport since 1989. Today, the MercedesTrophy has evolved into an extremely successful tournament series for amateurs, staged over 60 countries, and we’re very proud to host it for the 28th year in Malaysia,” says Claus Weidner, President and CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

Every year, more than 60,000 golfers in over 60 countries; all of whom tee off in local, regional and national invitational tournaments in the hope of qualifying for the MercedesTrophy World Final held in “the birthplace of the automobile”, Stuttgart, Germany. The MercedesTrophy tournament series in Malaysia will be played in nine qualifying rounds this year.
