The Glyfada Golf Course in Athens, Greece, will host the latest stage of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup 2016, one of the sport’s biggest and most exciting amateur tournaments, on Saturday, May 21.
The 28th of 100 qualifying events, following three hugely successful previous competitions, will feature more than 60 players, all personally-invited guests of Turkish Airlines.
One winner will progress to the Grand Final in Antalya, Turkey, this October, while there will be memorable prizes for the runner-up, third place, Best Gross and “nearest-the-pin” prizes for men and women.
“We are proud to be hosting the latest 2016 Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup qualifier in Athens”, Alp Yavuzeser, General Manager for Turkish Airlines Athens, said.
“We are excited to be welcoming everyone to the world class facilities at Glyfada Golf Course. We are sure the players will have a day to remember and wish them all the very best of luck.”
Winners of the Grand Final will compete in the 2016 Turkish Airlines Open pro-am, while all 100 lucky Grand Final qualifiers will enjoy an eight-night accommodation at an all-inclusive resort and VIP passes to attend the Turkish Airlines Open.
Turkish Airlines, which was recently voted Best Airline in Europe for the fifth consecutive year, launched the World Golf Cup in 2013. It featured 12 qualifying events and was won by China’s Han Liang. His prize for victory was partnering with world number one and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods in the Turkish Airlines Open pro-am. Last year’s winner, Neill Bam from Johannesburg, proved successful in the 2015 series and went on to partner with Rory McIlroy, a once in a lifetime opportunity.
