On Friday 19 July, Porsche Centre Leicester hosted our regional qualifying round for the Porsche Golf Cup 2019. The event took place at The Rushcliffe Golf Club, north of Leicester, where we were joined by 30 Porsche golfers who competed to qualify for one of two places at the national final.
Upon arrival, guests were welcomed into the clubhouse and presented with mini packages including a set of Porsche golf balls and tees. Following registration, a selection of hot breakfast rolls were served alongside tea and coffee to provide fuel for the day ahead.
The Rushcliffe Golf Club, set in rural Leicestershire, boasts a diverse range of beautifully manicured greens and landscaping. The undulating course offered unique challenges to golfers of all abilities, with some particularly challenging feats, such as the 8th hole, which was once renowned as the longest par 4 in the county.
Playing in three-ball teams, they set off at staggered tee times to complete the 18-hole course. A sleek new Porsche Cayenne Coupé and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid were both displayed, providing guests with the opportunity to view the latest model derivatives in the flesh.
Upon arriving at the halfway house next to the 11th hole, guests were able to take a break and enjoy a selection light sweet and savoury snacks. Following completion of all 18 holes, guests were ushered back to the clubhouse for the main meal and prize giving ceremony.
There was a host of subsidiary prizes up for grabs to accompany the main prizes of first and second place on the leaderboard. Ian Wood successfully claimed first place, with Bob Eaton following close behind in second. Raj Pancholi was our third place runner up who, fortunately for him, will be able to attend the final due to a place becoming available. The two winners, plus guests, will join Porsche Centre Leicester hosts in attending the national final at the renowned course - St Andrews - where they will enjoy complimentary Porsche hospitality.
Porsche Centre Leicester would like to wish both Bob and Raj the best of luck in the challenge ahead! Join us in rooting for victory.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
