The World Corporate Golf Challenge promotors confirmed today the cancellation of the 2020 World Corporate Golf Challenge World Final due to the threat posed by the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) World Final was scheduled to take place at Oitavos Dunes Links Golf, in Cascais, Portugal, from November 11 – 15.
José Guerra, WCGC Chairman, said: “When we postponed the original World Final dates from 1 – 5 July to November 11 – 15 we were confident that we would still be able to have a great World Final week later in the year, as planned.”
“We have been working closely with the Municipality of Cascais, our main sponsor, monitoring this global situation in relation to the Coronavirus outbreak and evaluating its impact on our tournament, with public health and well-being our absolute priority.”
“The decision was made on the basis of the exceptional restrictions currently in force after the Portuguese Government having just announced the State of Calamity, together with the current tight restrictions to travel and also the continual mandatory quarantine period (14-days in strict self-isolation) in several countries and, ultimately, the possible second lockdown in a few countries.”
“We appreciate your understanding during these difficult times. We wish you all well and we look forward to hosting you once again in Cascais at the 2021 World Corporate Golf Challenge World Final – dates to be announced.”
