18th InterContinental Doha Open golfing event to raise funds for charity

InterContinental Doha Open

The highly anticipated 18th InterContinental Doha Open, in association with Brand Expression, is set to kick off on November 15, 2019.

The two-day tournament will attract 200 top class amateur field golfers (100 couples) from the region competing in a two-day golfing agenda played in Greensomes format over the Championship Course at the exclusive Doha Golf Club.

The annual event, a highlight on Doha Golf Club’s schedule, also allows golfers the opportunity to play on a world-class, Peter Harradine-designed Championship Golf Course.


“As part of our responsible business, we organise a charity auction on the awarding night where the collected funds will be donated to two important organisations, the first one being ‘IHG Giving for Good’ to support victims of natural disasters worldwide; and the second one of which is ‘Qatar Cancer Society’, a leading humanitarian organisation in Qatar which pledges to work towards increasing public awareness about cancer and cancer prevention,” director of operations, IHG Northern Gulf, and general manager, InterContinental Doha, Andreas Pfister revealed.

“IHG is committed to the development of sports in Qatar and we have demonstrated this over the years by organising and sponsoring many sporting events and competitions in our host community Doha,” he added.

On the awarding night, titles to be handed out will include ‘Top 4 Couples’, ‘Best Pose Couple’, ‘Longest Drive’ and ‘Nearest to the Pin’. The awards ceremony will be followed by a lavish dinner on the evening of November 16, 2019.
