Executive Golf Teams Up For New Corporate Challenge

Golfers from the Ottawa-Gatineau business community will have a new way to test their skills against other companies thanks to a new event announced late last week by Executive Golf.

As part of a new two-year agreement between Executive Golf and promotional firm, Promomedia Group of Ottawa, a new tournament has been created and Promomedia will also take over sponsorship of three existing events run by Executive Golf.

Promomedia  will work with Executive Golf to introduce the inaugural “Promomedia Group Corporate Challenge” to the region’s business community. This one day event, slated for autumn 2011, will attract the top four competitive golfers from different companies to battle it out in match-play competition. Individual businesses will appoint their own team members.

“We’ve had this corporate challenge on the drawing board for a few years now,” said Jamie Ryan, Executive Golf President. “The demand is clearly there and I guess we just needed the right partner to make it happen, and Promomedia’s enthusiasm for the event made it clear that that time has arrived.”

The event takes place at Loch March Golf & Country Club on September 13, 2011.

According to Promomedia President & CEO, Dan Rochette, the Corporate Challenge is just one part of a much broader picture. “ We’ve been looking for an opportunity like this for a while. Just by the nature of our line of business, we already know most of the region’s marketing and advertising people – so recruiting teams is going to be the easy part.”  He added. “I’m certain this event will turn into a major staple in the region’s golf scene.”

In addition to the Promomedia Group Corporate Challenge, Promomedia will take over title sponsorship of the Ottawa Sun Scramble Promomedia B-Class City Championship, the Ottawa Sun Scramble Promomedia Closest-To-The-Pin (a contest for competitors in all nine divisions of the Ottawa Sun Scramble that raises funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario), and The Slammer Tour Promomedia B-Class Tour Championship.
