The 16th Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC), the thrice-awarded corporate golf tournament and one of the most prestigious sporting events in the region, has announced that its second qualifying round will be played on Thursday at the Emirates Golf Club’s Faldo Course, Dubai.
Multiple two-person corporate teams will participate and the winners will compete in the two-day grand final hosted on two iconic golf courses, Tower Links Golf Club and Al Hamra Golf Club.
Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour sanctioned Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, was established in 1988 and is the first all-grass championship golf course in the Middle East. Offering 36 holes of world-class golf, the club sports two of the city’s finest must-play courses, ‘The Majlis’ and ‘The Faldo’ Courses, which is also the only 18-hole course in the region to offer night golf.
Andrew Horne, general manager, Xerox Emirates, said: “We have had a great kick-off to this year’s challenge with 96 executives participating in the first qualifier at Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, and are keen to see the numbers swell with each progressive qualifier. This is cementing our 2014 vision of bringing ‘Corporate’ back into ‘Corporate Golf’. We are proud to support the Noor Dubai Foundation, and help bring a mobile eye camp to a developing part of the world”.
Noor Dubai Foundation is the cause that the 2014 Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge is supporting, and the Challenge aims to raise a sum of $60,000, which is the cost of one mobile Eye Camp to bring 4,000 treatments and up to 500 surgeries in a developing nation.
