World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) announced today that the 2017 WCGC World Final, for the third year running, will be held in Cascais, Portugal, from 21 June – 25 June 2017. Players and guests from approximately 35 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 2017 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 two years, and the WCGC organising committee is thrilled to once again be bringing the event back to Cascais.
Cascais is a must-see destination for any visitor to Portugal. Offering beautiful beaches that range from sheltered coves to miles of dune-backed sands, visitors can immerse themselves in a variety of quaint villages, unparalleled history, and unspoiled forests. A former small fishing village that was regularly frequented by the Portuguese monarchy during the 19th century, nowadays Cascais is a lively and cosmopolitan town that still preserves a great deal of its earlier aristocratic atmosphere.
Carlos Carreiras – Mayor of Cascais
“Cascais is truly happy to welcome the World Corporate Golf Challenge for the third time in a row. We hope and we are, again, seriously working for that all participants will enjoy their time in Cascais. A place you already know is much more than a premium venue for golf. As we like to put it, this is simply the best place to live a day, a week or a lifetime. Be most welcome and may everybody join us in our town: Cascais.”
Jose Guerra – Chairman of WCGC
“We are delighted to once again bring the World Final to the spectacular Lisbon Coast and in particular Cascais. The last two World Finals have been 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 2017. 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
“I can’t think of a better place to be bringing the World Final to. The last two years have proved that and I am delighted we will be able to once again produce a memorable event for a third year running. Cascais is an extremely special place and we look forward to showing this to the competitors and guests in attendance, as well as the watching world.”
