MercedesTrophy World Final 2016.

Golfers from all over the world meet in Stuttgart.

Amateur golf in a class of its own.

96 male and female golfers – the best of over 60,000 original starters from more than 60 countries in the worldwide MercedesTrophy amateur golf series – qualified in regional and national preliminary rounds, and now compete against each other in national or regional teams. The defending champion is the Team North Asia, which came out on top of the competition last year. “The MercedesTrophy is an important pillar of our global golf involvement,” says Dr Jens Thiemer, Head of Marketing Mercedes‑Benz Cars. “The MercedesTrophy World Final is the annual highlight of the tournament series and offers our customers a unique brand experience, thereby strengthening customer loyalty as well as the perception of our brand as a global partner in the sport of golf.”

A brilliant five-day programme.

The participants and their travelling companions can expect a brilliant five-day programme centred on the brand and the sport of golf at the birthplace of the automobile. The sporting part of the programme will take place on the golf courses of the Schloss Nippenburg Golf Club and the Solitude Golf Club in Stuttgart, where the winners are determined in three tournament rounds. In addition to the team competition for the equally coveted and tradition-rich Nations Cup, winners will also be determined in various individual categories.

Apart from a first-rate golf experience, the international guests can look forward to the so-called “Mercedes‑Benz Day” which provides tangible experiences of the Mercedes-Benz brand values. After a visit to the Mercedes‑Benz plant in Sindelfingen, the participants will delve into the history of the three-pointed star in the Mercedes‑Benz Museum.

Beat the Pro & Beat the Driver.

Another highlight will be the visit of Martin Kaymer, winner of two majors and brand ambassador, who will compete against all participants in the “Beat the Pro” competition immediately following his appearance in the Ryder Cup. DTM record champion and current Mercedes‑AMG brand ambassador Bernd Schneider will also attempt to place his ball closer to the par‑3 hole than the World Final qualifiers in the “Beat the Driver” special challenge. Some players might even hit a hole in one. In that case, they should ideally repeat this performance on the 10th hole on Wednesday. That is where they can win the Hole‑in-One Award, a Mercedes A 200 valued at € 42,400. The participants can expect a unique special challenge at the end, the dream of any golfer, the “Drive to the Major” contest. The winner can look forward to an unforgettable visit to The Open 2017 in Royal Birkdale, and at the “Monday After Tournament” he or she will have the opportunity to play the same golf course where the winner of The Open and thus the winner of the legendary Claret Jug was determined just the day before.
