Golfing with the Pros at the Qatar Masters

A lush green golf course set within the rolling sand dunes of Qatar. A chance for Diners Club International® Clubmembers to play with some of the biggest names in the sport, coupled with VIP treatment at our various sponsored activities.

The Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, which took place January 21st – 26th, set the scene for this world class yet up front and personal experience for all who attended. For 15 years running, this event has drawn top professional golfers – from Rory McIlroy to Jose Maria Olazabal to Ernie Els.

Diners Club International is proud to have been the event’s financial services sponsor. We kicked off this partnership by creating a singular experience for our clubmembers, offering access to our VIP Suite and Hospitality Tent.  At the VIP suite, which welcomed 30 invited guests each day, clubmembers could take a break from the course and mingle with fellow golf enthusiasts. At our tent at the Qatar Masters Village, clubmembers could access fantastic offers and event discounts using the Diners Club card.

But perhaps the most valuable takeaway for the real golf fanatics was the chance to play alongside pro golfer Jason Dufner, and gain inside intelligence on improving their golf swings! The first day of the Qatar Masters included a ProAm tournament and Diners Club had two teams participating. I was able to play with representatives from our franchises in South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Austria and, although we didn’t win any of the ProAm awards, we had a fantastic time sharing in the experience.

I invite you to take a look at this video, which will give you a glimpse of the idyllic setting and the activities, and get to know some of clubmembers who attended this year:

Diners Club International plans to see our franchises and clubmembers back again at the Qatar Masters next year. See you on the green!
