Slovakia is the latest country to join the World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC). Pro Golf Slovakia will join the growing list of license holders, when they begin running their qualifying events later this year.
Pro Golf Slovakia has offered outbound golf trips for its clients since 2007. Apart from golf trips, Pro Golf Slovakia also organises golf tournaments and sports events for their top business clientele.
A great opportunity for WCGC
Rusty Koys, Owner of Pro Golf Slovakia said, “Joining WCGC will provide a great opportunity for our clients to strive for excellence in both business and golf, with the aim to reach the World Finals. I am really excited to bring this exclusive corporate golf event to Slovakia and to give the chance to my clients to compete on a world stage.”
The Mission Hills Resort in Haikou on Hainan Island in China was the setting for the 2014 Asian Golf Tourism Convention (AGTC) where both Pro Golf Slovakia and WCGC were in attendance during the week-long event. Attendees were given the chance to play three of the ten golf courses during the AGTC including Blackstone,Mission Hills No.1 golf course and home to ‘The Match” between Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.
Oliver Dury, Sales and Marketing Director for WCGC and Rusty Koys, had the chance to play together following negotiations over recent months for the WCGC license in Slovakia. The golf course provided the perfect backdrop to further discussions and consequently sign a license agreement; once again proving that business and golf are a great match.
Oliver commented, “I am delighted Pro Golf Slovakia decided to move forward with the license. Rusty has some great ideas on how to develop WCGC in Slovakia and I am confident he will make the event a great success.”
