On July 8, the day before the start of the INNOPROM International Industry Trade Fair, the 3rd INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE international golf tournament will be held at the Ural's one and only Pine Creek Golf Resort.
Registration for participating teams and guests of the Tournament officially started on April 23.
The INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE is a unique venue for informal business communication, and the first-ever Russian golf tournament to bring together the business and political elite of Russia and other countries on the same course. This exciting tournament welcomes the leaders of Russian and international industrial corporations, managers of foreign ministries and government bodies, heads of federal and regional authorities, and key participants from INNOPROM, Russia's largest industrial trade fair.
The Tournament is supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, the Government of Sverdlovsk Region and the Russian Golf Association. The event is organized by Pine Creek Golf Resort.
In 2017, the INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE welcomed more than 275 attendees. The event was visited by the representatives of more than 60 companies, industry associations and unions. 72 players from Japan, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Korea, India, the USA, Kenya, RSA, Bahrain, and Russia joined together to play a friendly game of golf. For the first time ever, the Tournament was also attended by world-class golf players of the highest caliber from the European Tour. Event guests were also treated to a unique cultural program in honor of the event's partner country — Japan.
This year, guests and participants of INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE 2018 will also enjoy a jam-packed and interactive two-day program consisting of equally balanced sports, business, cultural, entertainment and official programs. It is the perfect way to spend the weekend right before the start of the INNOPROM fair's eventful work agenda.
The event will in fact combine two different tournaments, as on July 7, players will also have the opportunity to take part in a “Tournament-workshop with European Tour professionals”. The event format is unique in that it features golf workshops and a full-fledged tournament, where amateurs and professionals compete in both individual (for golf professionals) and team ratings. The results of the first day will be used for the draw on the main tournament day. The end of the first day will be celebrated with a dinner party in honor of the European Tour, which this year became a strategic partner of the tournament.
July 8 is the official INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE held in the exciting scramble format. The largest Russian and international companies will send out their teams consisting of 3 amateurs and 1 golf professional. Winners (1st Place) and runner-ups (2nd and 3rd Place) in the team event are awarded with the Cups. The Longest Drive winners (separate for men and women) and Closest to the Pin winners (separate for men and women) are awarded with special prizes.
Guests of the tournament will enjoy the game from the terrace of the Pine Creek Golf Resort clubhouse, where the view of the course is simply ideal. Team results will be displayed on a special screen in real time.
Tournament guests will be able to hold business meetings in the conference rooms and lounge areas of the club, and also participate in the programs of event partners. Sticking to our annual tradition, the entertainment program will honor this year's INNOPROM partner country – the Republic of Korea. Korean partners will be able to present themselves and their country. The event will be concluded with an exciting awards ceremony and gala dinner, where winners will receive memorable trophies.
