25 years of Audi quattro Cup

The season opener in Germany on the first weekend in May will kick off the 25th season of the Audi quattro Cup. The tournament series for amateur golfers that is popular around the world is the hub of Audi’s involvement in national and international golf.

Far more than a million golfers across the globe have participated in the Audi quattro Cup since its inception, while the series has been setting new top marks year after year.  In 2014, over 100,000 amateurs in more than 900 qualification tournaments played to qualify for the world finale in which 53 nations were represented. The tournaments are held at the invitation of regional Audi partners as ‘foursomes with selected drive.’ The winners qualify for the finale in their countries and the best country teams subsequently meet in the world finale. This season, the world finale will be held at the Cabo del Sol Ocean Course in Mexico from November 29 to December 2. The participants from Germany will be determined at the A-Rosa Resort Bad Saarow from August 31 to September 4. The Audi Ladies Cup to which regional Audi partners invite female golfers has been the Audi quattro Cup’s equivalent for women since 1995.

The cooperation with Hartl Resort in Bad Griesbach that has existed since the beginning of this year is new in the portfolio of Audi’s extensive golf commitment. As the facility’s new premium partner, the company has given its name to the ‘Audi Golf Course’ and is featured with its logo on all advertising materials. In return, the brand makes five Audi models available to the resort.

The partnership with the German Golf Association (DGV) has existed since 2008. As its exclusive automobile partner, Audi provides several cars to the officials of the association that has some 640,000 members and is featured with the four rings on all membership cards.

For more than a decade, Audi has been presenting the Süddeutsche Zeitung Business Golf Cupthat begins at the Münchener Golf Club on June 9 this year. The Cup encompasses twelve tournaments and offers an ideal opportunity to establish or intensify business contacts while playing golf.

In addition, a spectacular highlight awaits golfers off the golf courses. Twelve holes along the legendary downhill ski course in Kitzbühel will have to be tackled again this year in the ‘Streif Attack’ that Audi will again be accompanying as the main sponsor in 2015.
