“We have been working very closely with the team at Dubai Golf to come up with a concept that was both inclusive yet competitive at the same time. Golf can be a somewhat intimidating game and we felt a betterball stableford series of fixtures spread amongst two of Dubai’s most established courses provided a great opportunity for corporates to compete amongst their peers, yet provided a social element for those more interested in the unique networking opportunities that only golf can provide. Throw in a EGC’s famous buffet and some great prizes and I strongly believe we’ve got a winning formula,” said Ravi Bhusari, Co-founder & Director of Business Development, DUPLAYS.
Each company signs up for all 3 fixtures and sends 2 players per event to represent their company. The series has been structured to be inclusive and flexible, so that companies can invite clients to a given fixture. Unlike traditional industry-specific, single-event golf tournaments, DUPLAYS is promoting this as a multi-sector event that is equal parts competitive and social. A post event buffet will be held on the terraces of both venues where players can invite colleagues to join them and take advantage of the opportunities to network and forge new personal or professional relationships.
Commercial Bank International is extremely proud to be the presenting sponsor of Corporate Golf Challenge. We believe this is an ideal occasion for business leaders across the UAE to network, as well as compete, with one another in the picturesque setting of Dubai’s golf courses. Kris Babicci, CEO, Commercial Bank International.
The format will be a betterball stableford at all three fixtures with a full handicap allowance. The event is open to both male and female golfers across the region holding a valid handicap of 28 or below. As well as the unique main prizes on offer, individuals have the chance to win spot prizes for longest drive, nearest the pin and best score on the day. There will of course be a number of freebies for all entries at all three fixtures!
“We are very excited to be working with DUPLAYS on this great event. This exciting tournament will attract both new and experienced golfers and with the support of Commercial Bank International we look forward to making the tournament a huge success for many years to come”, said Jim Wheat, Commercial and Business Development Manager at Dubai Golf.
