The world’s largest amateur golf tournament

36 years ago, Audi introduced our now-legendary technology known as quattro® all-wheel drive. 10 years later, in the spirit of innovation and Audi’s Sport legacy, the first Audi quattro Cup was held on a golf course in Germany.

2017 will see the Audi quattro Cup enter into its 27th year of the tournament. Open solely to Audi customers, the quattro Cup is the largest amateur golf tournament in the world, continuing to offer an unforgettable experience.

Centre rounds

In 2016, we had 2,100 Audi customers participate in 38 Centre rounds throughout the UK.

Regional finals

At this stage, 270 Centre round qualifiers were paired up to compete in the Regional finals. Guests were treated to 18-holes of golf at one of 7 prestigious venues, in addition to welcome refreshments, a BBQ lunch and a prize presentation.

quattro Cup UK Final

The UK Final was held during September at Bowood Golf Club in Wiltshire. Having already qualified via the Centre rounds and regional finals, 36 amateur players competed in pairs for the chance to fly to Barcelona to play against the world’s best amateurs on the course at the Real Club de Golf El Prat.

Bowood’s unforgiving bunkers and undulating greens were a fitting test for this talented line-up. After 18 challenging holes, the players were treated to surprise appearances from golf professional Nick Dougherty and world trick-shot champion Geoff Swain. Then, at the post competition gala dinner, the result was announced: David Morris and Phil Jones emerged as UK winners, and booked their place in the World Final – as did runners-up Matt Hurren and Michael Pickett.

- South Hereford Audi’s Phil Jones and David Morris (UK final winners) finished in joint 10th with Singapore’s Eddy Quek and Sherman Chang and Italy’s Luca Bruno and Matteo Cherchi

Guests were treated to four nights at the prestigious W Hotel in Barcelona where they competed at the Real Club de Golf El Prat golf course, and to a gala dinner/awards evening hosted at Casa Llotja de Mar.
