World Corporate Golf Challenge Celebrates 20th Anniversary in 2013
Posted by: Golf Shake on Fri 08 Mar 2013
The World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013 after twenty successful years of connecting business men and women from all around the world via golf.
The WCGC began in the United Kingdom in 1993, in association with The Times Newspaper, with the clear intention of providing companies with a platform that would enhance company relationships both internally and externally. In 1997, after four years in operation, the event had proved so successful in the UK that the concept was taken to a number of foreign markets around the world and ran by an independent organisation. Over 1 million people, and hundreds of corporations have competed in the WCGC, including teams representing American Express, BMW, and IBM to name a few.
Today, the WCGC takes place in five continents each year, spanning across more than twenty countries such as India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Brazil and Turkey. As a result, the event is now an international network of national amateur corporate golf tournaments, promoted and run independently by organisations (the licensees) in association with local national media partners. The annual winners from each territory compete in the World Final, representing not only their company but also their country. The World Final is competed over 36 holes by teams of two; the winning team is those who card the highest combined stableford score.
TIME and Fortune magazine, along with television partner, Golfing World, have recently become the international global media partners to further develop the global reach of the WCGC.
To officially mark the occasion and to celebrate the milestone, the 2013 World Final will take place from 7-12 May at De Vere Cameron House and The Carrick on the banks of Loch Lomond in Scotland. Previous World Finals have been celebrated in South Africa, Spain, Malaysia, Mauritius and Jamaica. The global nature of the event has never been more apparent than this year with an estimated record of 30 countries taking part at the World Final.
