Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC)
Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge (XCGC) is the longest-running executive-amateur golf series in the UAE. XCGC started in 1997 with 3 qualifying rounds including a grand final, all hosted across various UAE golf courses. In 2013 Xerox Emirates, owner of the series, entered into a long-term agreement with Onside Sports to manage the series with the directive to raise the profile and grow the Challenge, as well to bring the ‘Corporate’ back into the Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge.
Onside has been successful in securing new financial and VIK sponsors to the series benefiting player and owner experiences, implementing more engaging and interactive marketing and PR to raise its profile, and position XCGC as the leading executive-amateur golf series acknowldged by being the recipient of 2013 and 2016 MEGA Corporate Tournament of the Year award.
Onside, in partnership with Xerox Emirates, has successfully negotiated and lifted the series to currently host 16 scheduled qualifying rounds across 8 countries; UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi, Oman, South Africa and Jordan with the Grand Final positioned as a 2-day tournament staycation in one of UAE’s emerging tourism destinations; previously in Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman.
