12.30pm 1st February 2005 - Sponsorship & Events

Volvo, one of the best-known names associated with world-class professional golf for more than 17 years is launching The Volvo Masters Amateur Tournament to UK clubs.
A total of 100 clubs will be selected on a first come first served basis to participate with winners competing in regional finals. The UK final will be held at Wentworth Golf Club in September. The successful UK finalists will be rewarded with a place in the 2005 World Final held in Andalucia and staged in conjunction with the Volvo Masters in Valderrama in October.
Each club will run a Volvo Masters Amateur competition with the title sponsor providing a £100 prize fund and promotional material to publicise the event. From each club, the top scoring gentleman, lady and an overall runner up will qualify for the regional final as will the club secretary or manager who gains automatic qualification. Each regional final will generate six club members and two secretaries or managers who will compete in the UK final with at least one manager or secretary winning the opportunity to play in the World Final.
A pilot event in 2003 proved so successful that the first Volvo Masters Amateur was rolled out in 2004 to 17 countries and attracted over 70,000 amateurs to play in the qualifying rounds, with 62 players earning a coveted place in the World Final.
Volvo, has long been associated with top class professional golf in both Europe and the Far East, but now the company’s focus is moving closer to its customers bringing together its‘ network of world-wide tournaments to create one outstanding amateur event.
