SHAH ALAM, March 4 (Bernama) -- It’s all systems go for the four-day 2020 Malaysian Open Golf Championship, which tees off at the Kota Permai Golf Club tomorrow.

While police have assured the golfers and their delegation of their safety, the organiser has prepared free shuttle services for the public around the Kota Permai area to the venue. 

Shah Alam district police chief ACP Baharudin Mat Taib told a press conference today that 88 personnel and officers would be on duty during the tournament and that no roads would be closed either.

Also present was Arep Kulau, the chief executive officer of tournament organiser Winning Matters Sdn Bhd.

A total of 156 golfers will tee off in the 55th edition of the prestigious tournament, which offers US$1 million in prize money.

Meanwhile, Arep said they have prepared hand sanitisers at selected locations and face masks due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

“Fans will also be tested at the main entrance.”
