A full week of business networking, emotions and competition. This is what it is going to be experienced during the twenty-five edition of the World Corporate Golf Challenge World Final, the culmination of the world’s largest network of corporate golf days, where the National Winners from approximately 30 countries will come to Cascais to compete.
The World Corporate Golf Challenge celebrates its 25th Anniversary and 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 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 three years, and the WCGC organizing committee is thrilled to once again be bringing the event back to Cascais.
Carlos Carreiras – Mayor of Cascais
Welcome to Cascais! We really appreciate having you here. To many of you, this is about returning to place you already know. To a few of you, it’s about returning home. A home that you know very well but, year after year, we reserve new secrets which motivate you to come back. That’s why Cascais and the World Corporate Golf Challenge are a successful partnership.
You are already aware that in Cascais you may find some of the best Golf Courses in Europe, some of the most refined resorts and the best gastronomy. You also know that it has an urban environment full of history, natural parks and breath taking beaches. And all of this in a cosmopolitan atmosphere, international and tolerant, only 20km far from an European capital.
Phil Michelson, an importance reference in this modality, used to say “the purpose of golf is not just win, it’s to play like a gentleman, and win.”. We agree with Michelson: In Cascais, sports are not just about winning. It’s about win, but also about entering the competition with solid rock values – loyalty, sportsmanship and chivalry.
I wish you all an excellent competition at the most Occidental part of the continent, where the Atlantic meets Europe.
Jose Guerra – Chairman of WCGC
We are delighted to once again bring the World Final to the spectacular Cascais Coast. The last World Finals were a huge success thanks to the fantastic support from our Host Destination, Cascais, as well as our other sponsors and partners. We look forward to working with them once again in 2018. 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, WCGC
Cascais welcomes us again, with the excellence we’re used to, on the 25th Anniversary of World Corporate Golf Challenge, and the team couldn’t be more excited! We are working hard in order to organise another fantastic event, which all competitors, licensees, sponsors and guests will enjoy and remember as an unique experience. Looking forward to meet you all next June at The Oitavos Hotel & Oitavos Dunes, in Cascais!
