The MercedesTrophy is an exclusive series of invitational golf tournaments conducted around the world and has been running since 1989. Each year, over 65,000 players from more than 60 countries tee off at the MercedesTrophy in local, regional and national events, competing to qualify for the MercedesTrophy World Final at the ‘home place of the automobile’, Stuttgart, Germany. 2014 marks the 25th Anniversary of this prestigious event.
Sanctuary Cove will once again play host to the Australian MercedesTrophy National Final, this year seeing almost 80 National Final Participants teeing off on the internationally renowned championship golf courses – The Pines and The Palms. The top three preforming players from the National Final will each progress to the World Final in Stuttgart and compete as Team Australia in what is truly an unforgettable experience.
‘Drive to the Major’ was an exciting element of the MercedesTrophy in 2013 and will continue again in 2014. The 2014 Drive to the Major is a 'Straightest Drive' competition and will be run at the MercedesTrophy National Final. The golfer whose drive finishes closest to a marked line on a designated hole will win a trip to watch 'The Open' Championship being held at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, UK in July 2014. Furthermore the winner will participate in a qualifying tournament to win a spot in the Monday after event at The Open venue.
Mercedes-Benz Australia would like to wish all our players the best of luck at the MercedesTrophy National Final.
