Els Club Copperleaf, the second ‘Signature’ Ernie Els-designed golf course in South Africa
Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC), the successful corporate golf tournament with multiple qualifiers across the GCC states, will stage the first of two qualifiers in Johannesburg. The seventh qualifying round of the tournament will take place on 13th August 2015 at Johannesburg’s Els Club Copperleaf, the second ‘Signature’ Ernie Els-designed golf course in South Africa.
The Els Club Copperleaf features an 18-hole championship course with an enormous driving range and putting green offering guaranteed five-star golfing experience, along with the ideal way to golf competitions with landscaped recreational areas.
On the day of the qualifier, invited golfers from across South Africa will compete in two-player teams for a place to play in the grand finals at the end of the year in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates.
Dan Smith, Director of Integrated Marketing, Xerox Middle East & Africa said: “South Africa is very important to Xerox and we are happy to, for another year, bring the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge to golfing enthusiasts in South Africa. Securing a berth at the finals is proving to be a mark of pride for the region’s golfers, and the camaraderie and the networking opportunities offered by this championship is the main reason that we have continued to invest in it. We wish the South African teams the best, and look forward to welcoming the winners to the finals.”
Sponsors that are supporting the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge this year include Prestige Wealth Solutions (PWS – the Dubai-based firm of financial advisors), long-term partner Ecco, RAK Tourism, and first-time sponsor, Aramex.
