PHG Holding OU are the latest company to sign up as Licensees of the World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC), the world’s largest corporate golf event. PHG Holding OU will launch the WCGC Estonia with a qualifying launch event on 13th May 2016 at Saare Golf Club, with the winning corporate team going on to represent their company and Estonia at the 2016 World Final in Cascais, Portugal from the 21st – 26th June.
PHG Holding operates golf courses in Estonia and organises different events at its locations including Saare Golf which will be the host of the 2016 WCGC Estonian National Qualifier. This unique golf course is located on the biggest island in Estonia, called Saaremaa. The island with pristine nature and rich wildlife has numerous spa hotels offering comfortable accommodation and relaxing treatments after a challenging round of golf. Saare Golf is the ideal venue for the launch of the World Corporate Golf Challenge in Estonia.
Marko Kaldoja, CEO at Saare Golf said “Besides many other wonderful benefits, we have always seen golf as a way to create new connections and support the existing ones. Keeping in mind our corporate players, we were looking around for ideas of how to fulfill that goal in the best possible way. We didn’t want to have just another social event or organise just any competition. With this collaboration with the WCGC, we knew we had found the perfect formula. WCGC gives participants the extra dimension and motivation in order to be able to meet other like-minded business men and women on a national and also on an international level. We are hoping that the WCGC Estonia will be a popular business golf event, but also produce the strongest players to compete at the World Final, which is an event not to be missed. Being part of the biggest corporate golf event means a lot for us and hopefully it will initiate many new contacts and prosperous partnerships for everyone involved.”
Jose Guerra, WCGC Chairman said, “We are delighted to have signed yet another license holder, this time in Estonia with PHG Holding, Saare Golf and Marko. We are really excited about the relationship going forward and wish them every success over the coming months as they launch the event for the first time in Estonia.”
