Sunseeker International Sponsors Emirates Airline’s Pro-Am Charity Golf Event
Sunseeker International, Sunseeker Middle East and Sunseeker Seychelles were delighted to be premier partners at the recent Emirates Airline Invitational charity pro-am golf event held at the Kyle Phillips designed Yas Links Golf Course, Abu Dhabi. Hosted by Abdullah Al Naboodah, additional premier partners to the event included Landrover and Hawker Beechcraft. Sunseeker proudly displayed a stunning 30 Metre Yacht in the Yas Marine, adjacent to the official host Hotel, the Yas Viceroy.
Now in its sixth year this corporate event has evolved into one of the most exclusive and prestigious one-day pro-am golf tournaments in the world. Players at the 2012 tournament included Graeme McDowell 2010 US open champion, Simon Dyson, Sergio Garcia, Colin Montgomerie, and Ross Fisher, to sports personalities such as ex-Dutch International footballer Ruud Gullit. The 2012 Emirates Airline Invitational, a tournament officially sanctioned by the European Tour and one that held Ryder Cup points for tour players proved a fantastic stage on which to promote the Sunseeker product to a global audience.
Richie Ramsay shot a course record 10 under par 62 to finish two shots ahead of Denmark’sThorborn Olesen and England’s Richard Finch, and was crowned champion of the 2012 Emirates Airline Invitational, receiving the top prize of $100,000, half of which will be donated to a charity of his choice.
Stewart McIntyre, Managing Director of Sunseeker International commented, ‘We are delighted to have been invited to support this prestigious event and have the opportunity to promote Sunseeker Motoryachts alongside an impressive selection of International brands as premier partners. We are extremely pleased that the event raised a significant amount for some very deserving charities.’
