World Corporate Golf Challenge Portugal 2024 Sesimbra

Last weekend, from the 15th to the 17th of March, the first three World Corporate Golf Challenge Portugal 2024 qualifiers took place at Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club golf course, whose promoter is Golf Concept. The golfers from several country regions attended the competitions, representing 80 national companies, with 190 participants, including players, partners, and guests.

The choice of WCGC Portugal’s first destination reflects the confidence and investment that the Municipal Council of Sesimbra has made to welcome it. Since 2022, the WCGC has increased the number of qualifiers yearly because “The importance is huge. Increasingly, Sesimbra City Council intends to invest in a golf product, which is a product that develops in a seasonal period and guarantees a dimension of tourism and an audience that we want to reach. We intend to attract more people, both tourists and, in this case, businesspeople.”, says Councilor Maria Argentina Marques from Sesimbra City Council.

The companies classified in the WCGC qualifiers will compete for the title of national champion on July 6th, in Óbidos, on the Praia D’El Rey golf course.

The company holding the title will be able to enjoy a fantastic experience and compete for the title of World Champion in Haikou, China, from October 27th to November 1st. “This is big news for the world’s largest corporate golf circuit of companies; it is to raise the global world to its maximum exponent with the holding of the World Final in China. The word international has never gained so much expression, and this is an advantage for all companies that participate in the circuit”, reinforces Ana Massapina, WCGC Portugal Licensee.
