The 17th Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC), the region’s most popular, award-winning corporate tournament, and the largest corporate networking event on the greens, was held at The Royal Golf Club, Riffa, on March 21st, 2015.
The winning team from the Bahrain qualifier will join teams from around the GCC and South Africa to compete in a 2-day Grand Final, which will be played in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, in late 2015.
Andrew Horne, General Manager Xerox Emirates, said: “The 17th year of the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge is off to a strong start, and we are excited to bring the competition in the Kingdom of Bahrain once again. This year’s Challenge is even bigger than previous years, and presents the ideal opportunity for a day of great golf and unparalleled networking opportunities with C-suite peers.”
Sponsors that are supporting the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge this year include Prestige Wealth Solutions (PWS – the Dubai-based firm of financial advisors), long-term partner Ecco, RAK Tourism, and first-time sponsor, Aramex.
The day at the splendid Riffa Golf Club, Bahrain began with cloudy skies promising a rainy day but as the players teed off around 7.30AM, after a group photoshoot, the skies cleared. The players then enjoyed a clear, bright and sunny day. By noon, the teams had regrouped for the prize distribution and a buffet lunch. Mr. Luai Alagha, Country Manager, Aramex and Mr. John Joseph, GGM, Xerox Bahrain gave away the prices to the winners. Mr. Julian Danby, Partner/Commercial Director from On-side Sports and team were present.
