Doha Golf Club hosts third qualifying round of the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge 2014

Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC), the popular and awarded corporate golf tournament, has announced that the third qualifying round of the tournament will take place on 10th May 2014 at the Doha Golf Club, home to the European Tour’s Qatar Masters.

As with previous qualifiers, the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge will consist of two-player teams where the winning team will enter the 2-day grand final to be hosted mid-December (2014) on two iconic golf courses, Tower Links Golf Club and Al Hamra Golf Club, along with overnight stay in the magnificent Waldorf Astoria, in the region’s emerging golf destination, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.

The Doha Golf Club features an 18-hole championship course with an enormous driving range and putting green, eight artificial lakes, graceful landscaping and a beautiful clubhouse designed in the traditional Arabic style.

Dan Smith, Director of Integrated Marketing, Xerox Middle East & Africa said: “This year’s 3rd qualifier marks the first tournament to be hosted on the Challenge’s wider GCC trail, where 6 out of the 12 qualifiers will visit various GCC countries. We are very pleased to see Qatar’s’ qualifier, on May 10th, be strongly supported by Doha Golf Club, and their golfing community.”

Now in its 16th year, the tournament adds one more qualifying round for a total of twelve, held at leading golf courses across the Middle East and South Africa. The challenge offers a unique experience to avid golfers.

After this round, qualifiers will be held in Abu Dhabi, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. To register, golfers can visit www.xeroxcgc.com.
