Col Crawford BMW Golfers take Queenstown, NZ by storm!

The BMW Golf Cup International Tournament is the largest international tournament series for amateur golfers.

The BMW Golf Cup International traces its roots back more than a quarter century ago to a British based initiative, called the BMW Invitation Tournament. This Tournament was only hosted in the UK for five years before expanding to Germany. Ten years after its inception, the BMW Invitation Tournament was renamed the BMW Golf Cup International and became an international competition for amateur golfers.

Today, with more than 100 000 amateur participants, from more than 46 nations, the BMW Golf Cup International is the most renowned and largest amateur golf tournament in the world. Qualifying tournaments in the respective nations pave the road to the once in a lifetime experience, competing in the prestigious and coveted BMW Golf Cup International World Final.

A round of applause to our BMW Golf Cup Qualifiers from Col Crawford BMW who participated recently in BMW’s prestigious Golf Cup International Final in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Our finalists that won their respective grades in our Qualifying Tournament held at Cromer Golf Club in May last year, proudly represented our Dealership in New Zealand. Ben O’Toole (Mens A Winner), Nathan Tse (Mens B Winner) and Lynn Dinnie (Ladies field) were thrilled to earn themselves a ticket to this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Generously hosted by Carol Crawford, the event started with an amazing welcome night for our finalists at the Bungy Centre, where two of our group took up the bungy challenge in rain and cold!!

The Queenstown weather was not kind on the day with temps dropping to 8 degrees, the wind blowing a gale and rain falling, however all participants gave it their all. Presentations and dinner were held at the Skyline Restaurant in Queenstown which was a wonderful night with an amazing view. Despite none of our team advancing to represent Australia in the BMW World Cup Final in Dubai, in March, they were all winners to get this far and experience an Australian Final.

Congratulations again and we trust you will continue to enjoy your Golf and perfect your swing!
