Corporate golfers can look forward to a fabulous start to the New Year with the MercedesTrophy getting underway on January 4 at Oxford Golf Resort in Pune.
The 18th edition of the event has attracted more than 2,000 registrations at the time of going to press, making it the most popular choice among corporate golfers.
This year’s MercedesTrophy promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience with many firsts. The event has introduced a voluntary contribution for underprivileged kids in partnership with Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. Mercedes-Benz India will match the funds donated by participants. The proceeds raised at MercedesTrophy 2018 will be used to fund development programmes by Laureus-supported India based NGO, Magic Bus.
Every year around 60,000 players from over 60 countries participate in the tournament with the sole aim of qualifying for the MercedesTrophy World Final in Stuttgart (Germany).
What’s more, MercedesTrophy winners and patrons get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to the British Open in Carnoustie (UK) this year for a unique playing experience courtesy Mercedes-Benz. Participants and their spouses are treated to champagne lunches on the golf courses.
This year, the tournament will be covering 12 cities spanning 27 days. Further, the event also allows participants to introduce their family or friends to the game by organizing golf clinics at each venue.
