Part of an international network of amateur corporate golf tournaments, Diethelm Travel have secured the rights to the World Corporate Golf Challenge Asia (WCGC Asia) from global rights holder, Madrid-based OM Premium.

Speaking at the signing, David Pettigrew, Director of Golf, Diethelm Travel, said “We’re very excited about launching the World Corporate Golf Challenge Asia. It’s a unique concept where corporate two-player teams compete against other amateur corporate teams, with the winning team of each national final going on an all-expenses-paid-trip to the World Finals where they have a chance to become World Champions.”

Diethelm Travel have chosen Thailand to be the first World Corporate Golf Challenge Asia event. The 2010/2011 Thailand Finals will take place on 17th March at the only Greg Norman course in Thailand, the Thana City Golf & Sports Club, just outside Bangkok.

The event provides a playing environment where competitors will feel like they are playing in a PGA tournament, whilst at the same time having fun with plenty of opportunity for networking. Upto 72 teams (144 participants) will take part in the Thailand Finals.

All World Corporate Golf Challenge events are amateur handicap golf tournaments where two players are eligible to represent the entrant. The Thailand Finals are open to any company or organisation based in Thailand. The Finals consist of an 18 hole stableford competition.

The programme for the Thailand Finals starts with registration at Thana City Golf & Sports Club followed by breakfast. Tee-off time is at 10am. Refreshment and snacks are provided on the course, with drinks served at the Clubhouse upon completion, followed by a late afternoon buffet dinner and prize presentations.

The overall winners of the Thailand Finals will go on an all-expenses-paid-trip to the World Finals which will be held 3 – 8 May 2011 at Simola in South Africa, where they will represent not only their company but also their country.

An annual event, the World Corporate Golf Challenge attracts over 60,000 executives playing in 15,000 teams from more than 25 countries. Since it started in 1993, more than one million golfers have competed in the World Corporate Golf Challenge for the chance to represent their country.
