The 7th Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup came to OZO Golf Club in Riga on Saturday 27th July 2019, and is the world’s biggest corporate golf tournament.
The airline prides itself on the quality of its products and services, from the freshest seasonal ingredients used in onboard catering to the Stopover Service in Istanbul and bonuses like free transport of sports equipment including golf clubs.
Now in its seventh year, the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup continues to deliver the highest quality as players, all invited by the airline, will once again play at some of the finest courses in the world.
The event at OZO Golf Club was the 46th of 103 tournaments in this year’s record-breaking Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup – with the victors competing in the Grand Finals in Turkey later this year.
From a global total of 103, those that win will go through to the Grand Finals and have the chance to play in the Turkish Airlines Open pro-am where previously winners have teed it up alongside the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
