Melbourne Capital Group hosts first golf tournament: The Melbourne Cup 2024

24th May 2024, Selangor, Malaysia - Melbourne Capital Group proudly hosted The Melbourne Cup 2024 golf event, and it was a resounding success from start to finish. Spearheaded by myself, Thomas Henson, the day was a testament to our dedication in fostering relationships with our clients and the community.

The event was flawlessly organised, from the registration packs and awards to the immaculate golf course at the prestigious Kota Permai Golf & Country Club in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur. Every detail was meticulously planned to ensure a seamless experience for all participants.

A big thank you goes out to the Melbourne Capital Group team for their hard work in coordinating and ensuring the smooth running of the event. Special mentions go to Melissa Lau, Joshua Webley, Adam Humphries, Stella Chong, and Husaini Rahmat for their invaluable assistance and presence on the day. Also not forgetting our brave Private Wealth Managers, Jake Mowson, Luke White and Michael Garcia, deserve recognition for taking on the course with us.

We had a fantastic turnout with 68 golfers, all in high spirits and representing a range of handicap levels. The day was filled with excitement as players competed for an array of prizes, including golf bags, clubs, and much more, generously provided by our sponsors.
