The Ailsa course at Trump Turnberry is to host the 2015 Scotland National Final of the World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) following selection by Elysian Golf, the WCGC license holder for Scotland and England. The tournament will be on 22 April 2015 and the winners will go on to represent their company and Scotland at the 2015 World Final in Cascais, Portugal at the beginning of July.
Home to the iconic Ailsa, an Open Championship course four times over, Trump Turnberry Resort offers one of the world’s great golfing experiences in Scotland. Watson, Norman and Price have all won the famous Claret Jug at Turnberry and, in 2009, Stewart Cink added his name to that exclusive list following his play-off triumph over Tom Watson at the 138th Open. Ailsa is regularly ranked in the top five courses in the UK & Ireland, and is also legendary for the famous “Duel in the Sun” between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus.
Stephen Walker, Director of Sales and Marketing at Trump Turnberry, said “The Ailsa will provide a great challenge for the teams following in the footsteps of golfing legends. We are delighted to be working again with Elysian Golf and look forward to a great World Corporate Golf Challenge tournament.”
David Bailey, Chairman of Elysian Golf, said “We’ve had a relationship with Trump Turnberry for over five years now and the quality of experience there is superb. The World Corporate Golf Challenge’s aim is to bring the world of business together through golf and Trump Turnberry provides an ideal environment for achieving this in Scotland.”
