Omans Pro Am Golf Tournament in association with Audi A Huge Triumph

Carrying on Audi's involvement in precision sports, Audi Oman partnered with the first ever professional golf event in the Sultanate, marking an important milestone in the development of golf in Oman. The BankDhofar Pro-Am took place at the Muscat Hills Golf & Country Club between November 07 and 08. Audi Oman, represented by Wattayah Motors, was a Gold Sponsor and Audi was the Official Carrier for Oman’s golfing elite.

Abdel Karim Awwad, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Audi Oman said, "The Pro-Am tournament is helping to build a competitive scene and drive the golfing community forward in the Sultanate. Audi has been successfully involved in golf for two decades. Technology, design and sportiness are values that characterize every Audi vehicle, and they also reflect the special fascination of the sport of golf. The association is a long and successful one and it's fantastic that we can start to roll out the legacy here in Oman to help the game develop further."

He added, "On behalf of Audi Oman, we would like to congratulate all the winners of the 2012 Pro-Am Tournament and we look forward to more events in the future."

Francois van Coppenhagen, a 23-year old PGA Professional from Sahara Kuwait Resort, shot a 2 under par 70 and +7 points in the Modified Stableford to win the BankDhofar Pro-Am and was awarded a cheque for OMR 500 at the first professional golf event.

Wattayah Motors, the exclusive dealers for Audi in Oman have already proven themselves as a company supporting sporting events in Oman.

Audi's own amateur golf tournament series, the Audi quattro Cup, was established in 1991. Over one million golfers took part in one of the Audi quattro Cup tournaments during the last 21 years.
