Audi quattro Cup 2015 tees off in Dubai with Al Nabooda Automobiles
The opening event of the world’s most renowned amateur golf tournament has officially teed off this year in Dubai with more than 100 golfers turning out to compete.

Hosted locally by Al Nabooda Automobiles, the official dealer for Audi in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, the first series of the tournament in the world saw Craig Miller and Steve Pettigrew take the winning spot at The Address Montgomerie Club. Graham Batchelor and Rhys Alexander came in a close second as runners up, and now all four finalists go forward to the UAE final, competing for a chance to represent the Emirates in the Audi quattro Cup World Final 2015 in Los Cabos, Mexico at the end of November.
Ali Al Nabooda, General Manager Audi, Al Nabooda Automobiles, said: “The Audi quattro Cup 2015 series has been running for more than two decades and is a powerful way to promote golf throughout the world.
