World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) announced today that the 2019 WCGC World Final will be held in Cascais, Portugal, from 3 –7 July 2019. Players and guests from approximately 30 countries will be able to enjoy the many delights that this wonderful coastal town has to offer.
The World Corporate Golf Challenge represents one of the biggest corporate golf tournaments in the world. Since its inception in 1993 WCGC has grown to such an extent that over one million golfers have taken part in more than fifty countries. The 2019 World Final represents a fantastic opportunity for players to represent their company and country against other corporates from around the world. Participating in the World Final is an experience of a lifetime. The World Final has been in Portugal for the last four years, and the WCGC organizing committee is thrilled to once again be bringing the event back to Cascais.
Cascais and its spectacular coastline are a must-see destination for any visitor to Portugal. Flanked on two sides by the Atlantic Ocean, the region is located just 25 km from Lisbon and its international airport, stretching west in a rectangle from Carcavelos to Guincho Beach. Nearby stands the imposing Cabo da Roca, mainland Europe’s most westerly point.
With its mild year-round climate, the Portuguese Riviera (as the region is known) offers a surprising variety of landscapes and attractions, combining a wide range of possibilities in one very unique destination. From pure leisure to business, golf, sun, sea and water sports, Cascais simply has it all and offers a new definition of the concepts of eco- and activity-based tourism.
Carlos Carreiras – Mayor of Cascais
“Welcome back to all participants of the World Corporate Golf Challenge. Cascais is glad to host this competition and we are keen to prove you, once again, that we might actually be the best place to play golf for a day, a week or a lifetime.”
Jose Guerra – WCGC Chairman
“We are delighted to once again bring the World Final to the spectacular Cascais Coast. The 25th Anniversary World Final were a huge success thanks to the fantastic support from our Host Destination, Cascais, as well as our other sponsors and partners. The enthusiasm and support from them is going to be invaluable in our preparations for this World Final and we look forward to working with them once again in 2019. I am certain that the World Corporate Golf Challenge will provide a great platform to continue showing what Cascais has to offer to the global corporate golfing audience.”
Raquel Silva – Event Manager at WCGC
“For the 5th running year, Cascais proves to believe in the potencial of World Corporate Golf Challenge, welcoming us again for another successful edition.
Feels like we’re coming back home and we couldn’t be more thankfully for the opportunity and trust! We’ll work hard to organize a great event which will make everyone proud to be involved in. Looking forward to return to the lovely village of Cascais and to meet you all next July.”
