Stuttgart/Dubai. Exceptional golfing experiences in a breathtaking setting – the Porsche Golf Circle x Icons of Porsche event in Dubai brought the Porsche Golf Circle’s international community together in the United Arab Emirates’ biggest city.
Fifty-two golfers from 15 countries and four continents savoured the game of golf in a number of ways at the magnificent Emirates Golf Club. On the first evening, the majority of the participants played golf for the first time ever under floodlights on the Faldo Course and enjoyed the breathtaking views of the illuminated Dubai skyline.
Shortly after dawn the next day, the prestigious Majlis Course, the venue of the DP World Tour’s Dubai Desert Classic, was the stage for an 18-hole tournament. The members contested various competitions around the perfectly prepared course.
The memorable days in wonderful togetherness rounded off the visit to the Icons of Porsche festival. At the Middle East’s biggest Porsche gathering, the visitors marvelled at not only the eye-catching Porsche models – Grant Larson, the legendary designer of several Porsche icons and today the Director of Special Projects at Porsche met the Porsche Golf Circle Community to talk about the sports cars and answer the members’ questions. The Community was, one day after its world premiere, also able to take a look at the new Porsche Panamera live in Dubai.
“The event exceeded all expectations,” said a delighted Ralf Schumann from Germany who continued, “The setting and the whole programme were simply breathtaking. You don’t get to experience something like it that often. Everything fits perfectly in the Community, and we had so much fun together. A totally brilliant event.”
The events also included the evening rooftop festivities giving the members a phenomenal view of the desert metropolis and the Persian Gulf. The Community enjoyed a lovely time in which not only the day’s best had every reason to be happy. The festivities were continued at another night golf session – in a relaxed atmosphere at the Top Golf Range with everybody in great spirits enjoying snacks and drinks until late in the night.
“This event featuring one-of-a-kind golf experiences, memorable encounters and a spectacular brand experience marked the end of another successful year for the Porsche Golf Circle Community,” says Carolin Kunz, Global Community Management at Porsche AG. “One has to once again emphasise the internationality and the Community’s rousing Porsche spirit which has made the exceptional mood and atmosphere within the community possible.”
