The First Macallan M Masters Indonesia Tees Off With a Successful Qualifying Round


The Macallan Indonesia hosted the first of three qualifying rounds for M Masters 2019, a prestigious golf event aimed to serve as a platform for esteemed individuals to connect and network, with The Macallan being at the heart of it all. 

For the first time ever, The Macallan M Masters goes regional. When the tournament was first introduced in 2015, it took the form of a one-day golf play-offs which took place only in Singapore.  This year, the signature golf event is extended to other Southeast Asia cities, with Indonesia being one of it. The gameplay requires a team of 12 players to be formed for each country, selected across three qualifying rounds leading up to the finals at the end of August. 

The national representatives will then make their way to Bangkok, where the final play-offs will be hosted at Nikanti Golf Club and Amata Spring Country Club. The winning team walks away with exclusive prizes and bragging rights, and an ultimate winner scores a trip to The Macallan’s home in Speyside, Scotland where he or she will be taking on an intimate journey to experience the brand at its best. 

On Friday, 9th August 2019, The Macallan Indonesia kicked off the first M Masters qualifying rounds at one of the world class golf course in Jakarta – Damai Indah Golf, Pantai Indah Kapuk.  Inspired by the Spirit of The Sea and designed by one of the top golf-courses designed, Robert Trent Jones Jr, the course skilfully integrated the natural beauty of coastal wetlands. 

Outreach to recruit participants was done through the Club’s members’ association and The Macallan Indonesia VIP List, garnering more than 60 players for the first game of the season.  Tropical weather permitted a relaxed vibe amongst the players, whom were also treated to refreshing Macallan cocktails. The winners for the first qualifying round Mr. Surya Indarta (Winner), Mr. Handoyo Setiawan (1st Runner Up), Bapak Liong Wijaya (2nd Runner up), Bapak Iskandar T. (3rd Runner Up).

The round concluded with a befitting Macallan dinner and ceremony. Plenty of chatter and banter about the day’s games were exchanged amongst the participants, as they dined delectable cuisine plated and paired impeccably with The Macallan’s exquisite whiskies.

Those keen on taking their spot to represent Indonesia can look forward to the second qualifying round which will take place on 16th August at Soewarna Golf Club and the final qualifying round on 30th August 2019 at Royale Jakarta Golf Club. With a Leica SL completed with the lens – Leica Vario Elmaritt 24-90mm and the M Decanter – The Macallan’s pinnacle whisky expression of the prominent Masters Decanter Series as hole-in-one prizes to be won, M Masters is certainly making its mark as the sport event of the year.
