Last year saw Bentley create a golf tournament unlike any other that would bring together customers from the US, UK and Europe in a ‘Ryder Cup’ type final in April 2007.
Throughout 2006 and early 2007, customers were invited by their Dealership to take part in a number of regional golf tournaments. The top 3 players from each tournament then competed in a national final for the opportunity to represent their country in the Bentley ‘Continental Cup’ final to take place in Sardinia, Italy.
Most recently in the US and Canada, 12 regional golf tournaments were hosted in, amongst other places, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Orlando and Toronto. The top 3 qualifiers from each were then invited to take part in the national final at the Phoencian in Scottsdale, Arizona in February. A total of 36 finalists competed for eight positions to represent Bentley North America against eight of the best from a combined UK and European team in the final.
This unique tournament brings together golfers from different continents with a common interest in golf and Bentleys to compete for the rights to raise the ‘Continental Cup’. As an added bonus, the successful finalists, competing in April, will also be offered a personal practice session with Ryder Cup team member Colin Montgomerie.
Bentley hope to continue the series annually as interest has been very strong. Those wishing to take part in this year’s event should contact their local Bentley Dealership for more information.
