Lagos to Host Turkish Airlines’ Largest Amateur Golf Tournament
To further demonstrate its love and support for sports and organisations, Turkish Airlines will be hosting the largest golf tournament in Lagos on September 5, 2019.
The Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup (TAWGC), which is also the world’s largest corporate golf tournament, will be played in Lagos for the fourth time.
Through this tournament, Turkish Airlines demonstrates that business and golf are a natural fit and no-one combines the two as they do with other events like the European Tour tournament, Turkish Airlines Open, and the Challenge Tour’s Turkish Airlines Challenge.
The Golf Tournament is proof that the world’s finest airline also serves up the very best for its clients on the fairways as well as the runways – all with the genuine Turkish hospitality famous around the world.
Golf is entrenched in the Turkish Airlines philosophy that customers’ clubs can even fly for free. Players can look forward to another unforgettable Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup, which is now in its seventh year and is sponsored by National Car Rental & SOCAR.
According to Yunus Ozbek, General Manager of Turkish Airlines Lagos, the winner of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup will be invited to represent Lagos in the Grand Finals in Turkey later this year.
The 2018 Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup broke records yet again with 100 qualifying events that took place around the world, including past Open Championship venue Royal Birkdale and Ryder Cup destinations Gleneagles and the K Club in Dublin.
Winners reached the Grand Finals in Turkey and the champions in the Finals secured places in the Turkish Airlines Open Pro-Am, where previous winners have played alongside Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
Turkish Airlines supports some of the world’s most successful sports and organisations bridging cultures and continents. Alongside TAWGC, Turkish Airlines is title sponsor of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Europe’s top club level basketball competition.
With a fleet of 333 aircraft, Turkish Airlines flies to more than 306 destinations in 124 countries around the world. It carried over 75 million passengers in 2018, a record for the Star Alliance member airline.
