Golf's elite vie for prestigious 'Pearl'

Some of the world's best golfers recently battled it out for the Mother of Pearl Trophy at the annual Commercial Bank Qatar Masters golf tournament, sponsored in part by Qatar Duty Free (QDF), the tournament's official retail partner.

“The Commercial Bank Qatar Masters has been a much-celebrated event on Qatar’s calendar for the last 20 years, and I am thrilled that we could again be part of this prestigious tournament,” Luis Gasset, senior vice president of Qatar Duty Free, said. “It’s exciting to see world-class athletes play on a world class golf course -- right here in our home of Doha, Qatar.”

QDF hosted a booth in the Public Village during the tournament at the Doha Golf Club. Golf enthusiasts could take a “golf-pro selfie” to share on social media and enjoy an interactive activity showcasing QDF’s shopping experience.

“Sponsorships such as this provide us with a really important opportunity to support and grow these outstanding events here in our home in Doha,” Gasset said. “We continue to build Qatar into a leading destination for sport and entertainment, and the event showcases Doha to the world, reaching an audience of more than 400 million through television coverage.”
