About Paarl & Boschenmeer Golf Club
Paarl is South Africa’s third-oldest town and home to Paarl golf course, first laid out on the banks of the Berg River in the 1950s. The course has since been redesigned by Danie Obermeyer and David Frost. David Frost, a Paarl native and still a prominent winemaker in the area, has brought local knowledge and experience gained on both the US and European professional golf tours in assisting in the design of the course.
Located in the Paarl-Franschhoek valley in South Africa’s beautiful winelands region, the 27-hole course offers golfers a warm tradition of friendliness and has enthusiastically welcomed golfers throughout its 110 years of existence. The course is well manicured, beautifully framed by mountains, rivers and vineyards. You will find a course in pristine condition through all four seasons of the year. Paarl GC has successfully hosted South Africa’s prestigious Sunshine Tour events and many successful corporate golf days and other golf events. Find out more about Paarl GC here.

Lava created and moulded, 300,000 years ago, the largest of the Canary Islands: Tenerife. A paradise in the Atlantic Ocean that enjoys a privileged climate, with an average temperature of 23 degrees Celsius 365 days a year. Thanks to this, it is possible to enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities at any time of the year. But the island also has a unique natural environment, as well as avant-garde leisure options (beach clubs, rooftop bars), gastronomy with unique products and dishes and extraordinary cultural heritage, elements that make it a first-class tourist destination that “awakens emotions” among travellers.
“We are very happy that Tenerife is hosting this prestigious tournament, which shows not only the island’s capacity to host top-level international events, in this case of a sporting nature but also the island’s qualities for golf. Its eight excellent courses, plus two pitch and putt courses, have been designed by leading figures in the sport such as Severiano Ballesteros, Jon Jacobs and Donald Steel. These layouts are spread across the north and south of the island and allow you to play with excellent views of the ocean, Mount Teide and even other islands such as La Gomera”.Laura Castro – Island Director of Tourism of the Cabildo of Tenerife
“The event will become an excellent tool for the international promotion of the island’s qualities for golfers. An opportunity to showcase the first-class accommodation specially prepared to meet the needs of players, including spa and wellness areas; as well as complementary activities for moments of relaxation, from enjoying its natural areas, gastronomy and wines to whale watching and stargazing, to name but a few. We are sure that the participants in the tournament will be pleasantly surprised with all that Tenerife has to offer during their stay”.David Pérez – Managing Director of Tenerife Tourism
“We are delighted to bring the World Corporate Golf Challenge World Final and the Sports Legends Cup to the spectacular island of Tenerife for the first time. The support we are receiving from the Cabildo de Tenerife and Turismo de Tenerife and its brand Tenerife Golf, in the persons of Laura Castro, Island Director of Tourism; David Perez, CEO of Turismo de Tenerife, and Carlos Beautell, responsible for the golf product, is fundamental to the success of this World Final which we hope will grow from year to year.
