EGA hosts annual corporate Golf Day at Emirates Golf Club

United Arab Emirates: Getting into the sporting spirit of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (“the Omega DDC”), Emirates Global Aluminium (“EGA”) hosted its annual corporate Golf Day at Emirates Golf Club today. The Mixed Scramble tournament was played on the Majlis Course where the final round of the 2005 Omega DDC took place yesterday. Held each year to coincide with the international tournament, the EGA Golf Day provides an opportunity for customers, suppliers and other business partners to relax and interact with the EGA team while participating in one of the UAE’s most treasured sports.

The private corporate event is integral to EGA’s ongoing support of the tournament. “As a sponsor of the Omega DDC since 1992, we are delighted to be able to share our long-held passion for the sport with our valued network,” said Walid Al Attar (Chief Marketing Officer, EGA). “Relationships are crucial to the success of any business and fostering partnerships has been a priority since our inception. We remain committed to building these relationships year after year, with the annual golf day being just one example of our customer-focused strategy.”

Featuring 21 teams and a total of 105 players, the tournament tee-ed off at 08.30 and was followed by a networking lunch and prize-giving ceremony to award the day’s most successful players. As the event drew to a close, Al Attar took the opportunity to thank everyone who participated, saying, “It was great to see everyone get into the competitive spirit today. As we drive into another successful year of business together, I know that our collective talent and ambition will stand all parties in good stead. Long-standing relationships have been crucial to the success of EGA and we look forward to maintaining collaborative partnerships with all our valued customers, suppliers and business associates for many years to come.”
