BBG teams chase summer golf link to Spain

11.04.2007: BBG teams chase summer golf link to Spain

Forty four-man teams tee off in the British Business Group’s Annual Golf Day tomorrow (Thursday) knowing they are two steps from booking a passage to the famous La Manga Club in Spain this summer.

The winners of the BBG team prize to be contested over 18 holes at The Montgomerie Dubai will qualify for the regional final of the World Corporate Golf Challenge taking place at the same venue on 26th April.

The triumphant team from that event will go on to represent the UAE in the World Corporate Golf Challenge at La Manga from 2-5 July.

"This is an extra incentive for everyone playing on Thursday, and it would be nice to think that one of our teams could go on to Spain to represent the UAE," said Nick Dutt, Chairman of the BBG Dubai and Northern Emirates.

The BBG member with the highest stableford score on Thursday will receive the British Business Group Golf Trophy, donated by Ducab.

Also up for grabs will be a range of other individual and team prizes as well as longest drive and nearest the pin prizes on selected holes. The companies DHL, Ducab and Penguin Engineering have lent their support to the event as Gold Sponsors while EC Harris, Al Naboodah Laing O'Rourke, Orient Irrigation Services, Lloyds TSB Bank and Emirates are Silver Sponsors. Other sponsors include Sovereign Corporate Services, Eurolink Safety and HSBC Offshore.

 

The British Business Group, Dubai & Northern Emirates, more usually known as the BBG, was set up in 1987 to encourage the development of British business in the UAE. It undertakes a wide range of activities from communicating with decision makers and testing British goods to sharing best business practice and arranging networking events for its members.

The BBG is led by an elected committee of members and operates under the auspices of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry. It is recognised by the UAE authorities as the representative body of British companies and individuals operating in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

Since its inception the BBG has undergone huge growth and now has around 900 members and holds around 70 networking events, forums and seminars each year. It is widely recognised as one of the largest and most active business groups in the Gulf and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

Its activities include a cost-effective Product Testing Service that allows British companies to identify how their product or service would compete in the regional markets. The BBG is also the official body for provision of British Standards in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

The BBG’s events include regular monthly working luncheons, dinner and breakfast meetings and networking sessions, which provide a forum for members and guests to discuss their views and frequently feature guest speakers from the British and UAE business worlds. Its monthly Special Interest Groups provide a forum for members with a common interest and include Banking & Finance, Construction, Education and Real Estate.
