Team Great Bri­tain Wins In Ma­jorca

Porsche Golf Cup en­joys record num­ber of par­tic­i­pants

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

In­ter­est in the game of golf is grow­ing among Porsche cus­tomers with more than 12,000 am­a­teur golfers com­pet­ing in over 220 pre­lim­i­nary tour­na­ments around the world in the

2016 Porsche Golf Cup, a record num­ber. The top 98 play­ers from 20 dif­fer­ent coun­tries went head to head from 8th to 11th May in the Porsche Golf Cup World Fi­nal on the Span­ish is­land of Ma­jorca in the Mediter­ranean and Team Great Bri­tain emerged vic­to­ri­ous in the Na­tions Cup.

The Bri­tish team fin­ished ahead of their coun­ter­parts from Aus­tria and France af­ter two rounds in ex­cel­lent con­di­tions at the Son Gual and Al­canada golf cour­ses. The five mem­bers of the vic­to­ri­ous Bri­tish team each re­ceived a place among the start­ing field for the Pro-Am tour­na­ment at this year’s Porsche Euro­pean Open (27th to 30th July, Green Ea­gle Golf Cour­ses, Ham­burg).

The win­ner of the ladies gross com­pe­ti­tion was Mi­nako Mit­sugi from Ja­pan. In the men’s sin­gles, vic­tory in the gross com­pe­ti­tion went to Brazil’s Re­nato Song. Un­for­tu­nately, none of the par­tic­i­pants man­aged to drive away in this year’s Hole-in-One Prize, a Porsche 911 Car­rera GTS Cabri­o­let.

“Per­fec­tion and pas­sion were at the heart of this Porsche Golf Cup World Fi­nal,” said Oliver Hoff­mann, Direc­tor Ex­pe­ri­en­tial Mar­ket­ing at Porsche AG, who pre­sented the tro­phies. “And yet, for all the am­bi­tion and com­pet­i­tive­ness,

the par­tic­i­pants never for­got the fun and joy of the game. It is pre­cisely this mix­ture, to­gether with the op­por­tu­nity to chat to like-minded Porsche and golf en­thu­si­asts that once again made this year’s Porsche Golf Cup World Fi­nal another very spe­cial event. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the win­ners.”

The Porsche brand ex­pe­ri­ence rounded off an ex­clu­sive sup­port pro­gramme for all the par­tic­i­pants and their guests: the en­ter­tain­ing open­ing evening in a for­mer quarry was fol­lowed 24 hours later by din­ner in the Port Adri­ano marina, be­fore the evening pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony on a tra­di­tional finca in Son Ter­mens brought pro­ceed­ings to a close on the fi­nal day af­ter a thrilling fi­nale. A spe­cial high­light was in store for all those not play­ing for the cov­eted tro­phies, a test drive in one of the lat­est range of Porsche mod­els on Ma­jorca’s de­mand­ing, wind­ing moun­tain roads.
