Mingguan Malaysia reported that more than a million foreign tourists visited Malaysia every year for sporting reasons, especially for golf.
According to Tourism Malaysia director-general Datuk Mirza Mohammad Taiyab, Malaysia was very popular among international golfers as they felt that its golfing facilities were among some of the cheapest in the world while being on par with those in developed countries.
In fact, he said, foreigners were drawn to golf courses here because they were strategically located near mountains, lakes, rivers, the sea and forests.
He said the majority of foreign golfers were from Japan, Korea and Europe.
