The Volkswagen Masters gives all club players not only the chance to feel, and be treated, like a tour pro, but also to represent their country in a World Final. The event, which was launched in 2004, has become a highly popular amateur competition ? last year 20,000 players of all levels from over 18 countries took part.
Every year the top 1,000 clubs are invited to enter a champion from a specially allocated club medal to play at one of the 10 Regional Finals. These are held at some of the best courses in the UK ? this year more than half of the Regional Final venues feature in Golf Monthly?s Top 120 Course Rankings.
All the days are run by specialist golf event organisers TaylorAlison Golf to make the events feel like real pro tournaments. A report on each of the Regional Finals will appear on this site.
The best players from the Regional Finals in each of the three handicap categories then go through to the UK Final at the Celtic Manor Resort. The top three golfers in the UK Final qualify for the World Final at a prestigious international resort.
Last year?s UK category A winner, Dr Mohamed Dewji, a 9-handicap GP and member of Woburn, was the highest finisher of the UK?s representatives in last year?s Volkswagen Masters World Final, held at the stunning Arabella resort in South Africa. ?The World Final was amazing,” Dr Dewji enthused. ?It was so well organised and we were extremely well looked after. I made some great friends from around the world and I?m sure we will remain friends.?
