About World Corporate Golf Challenge The World Corporate Golf Challenge began in the United Kingdom in 1993 in association with The Times Newspaper. The intention was simple: Provide companies with a platform that would help enhance relationships both internally (incentives, communications, human resources, etc.) and externally (clients, suppliers, etc.).

The annual winners from each territory compete in the World Final representing not only their company but also their country and national media partner.
