Our greetings to all who have make this project possible.
The World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) represents one of the biggest corporate golf tournaments in the world. Since its inception, over 1 million golfers in over 20 countries have competed for the chance to represent their country and company at the World Final. What started out in 1993 as a UK corporate golf programme in association with The Times Newspaper, has now become a truly global event. Today the WCGC represents an international network of corporate golf tournaments promoted and run by licensees in association with local and national media partners. The WCGC culminates with the annual World Final, whereby the national winners represent their country (and company) at a worldclass venue. With media partners TIME and FORTUNE magazine, plus vast international television distribution via Golfing World, the WCGC represents an excellent international investment for World Final sponsors, Licensees and participating corporate golfers. WCGC represents the ideal platform to develop business, whether via client entertainment, employee incentives or pure business development and relationship building.
