Riyadh’s Top Golfers to Take on XCGC 2016
Thursday 29th September 2016
The 10th qualifier of the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge will see Riyadh’s top corporate golfers tee off in teams of two at the stunning Dirab Golf & Country Club – Saudi Arabia’s only grassed 18-hole Par 72 Championship course. Registration is now open at www.xeroxcgc.com for the chance to compete for a two-player berth in the Challenge’s grand final, to be held later this year in the UAE.
Situated in the picturesque Tawfiq valley 45 km south-west of the Saudi capital, the Dirab Golf & Country Club offers stimulating play on lush, tree-lined fairways. The course is a popular one with tournaments, having hosted several national, regional, and international competitions.
Ihab Wahba General Manager – Operations, Xerox Saudi Arabia, said: “Our yearly qualifying rounds at Dirab Golf and Country Club, last year, were a massive success with four qualifiers and tournament champions. We are anticipating an excellent level of competition amongst the Kingdom’s corporate executive golfers, and look forward to an exciting day of play.”
The grand final of the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge will be held in December 2016 at the Al Zorah Golf Club in Ajman, UAE.
The newest on-course competition in the Challenge this year is King of Pars, for teams performing the best on Pars 3, 4, and 5, with prizes sponsored by deVere Acuma. Teams that score the most across holes also go into the ‘Golden Ticket’ draw, for wild-card entries into the grand finals.
The Emirate of Ajman in the UAE is the host city and key supporter of Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge 2016, and destination partners include the Ajman Palace, Ajman Kempinski, and Ajman Saray. Venue sponsors for the 2016 Grand Final are Fairmont Ajman hotels and Ajman’s Al Zorah Golf Club. Sponsors of the tournament include deVere Acuma, Chrysler, and Select Property.
