In autumn 2017, a symbolic tee off in Portugal marked not only the international, app-based community’s start in the digital world but also the start of unique event trips. One led the exclusive circle of customers to the spectacular Abama Golf Resort in Tenerife. 72 members from 11 nations were proof of the high degree of acceptance that the golf community has gained in a short period of time. The next highlight, a practice session with the Masters Champion Patrick Reed scheduled for the start of 2019, is already awaiting.
A tournament at the Abama Golf Course, golf clinics with the PGA pros Frank Adamowicz, Torsten Giedeon and Craig West as well as memorable culinary excursions brought an eventful first year for the golfing community to a close. “Our members travel to our events from so many countries and the atmosphere is excellent right from the start. Everybody speaks the same language – golf. It really does make the Porsche Golf Circle something special,” says Sandra Siegloch, Manager Porsche Community Management.
In 2018, community members were present at the Porsche European Open on Hamburg’s doorstep and the prestigious Ryder Cup in Paris where they twice experienced golf’s crème de la crème. Thanks to such highlights, the Porsche Golf Circle has quickly increased in size to over 1,600 members. The hope is for the momentum to continue into 2019. In as early as February, 18 members will have the opportunity to be a part of a quite special golf trip where they will personally get to know a reigning major champion. “Meet the Masters Champion Patrick Reed” will take the participants to Houston, Texas where Patrick Reed, the 2018 Masters winner, will let his guests in on some world class tips in individual practice sessions. “I can’t wait to meet the Porsche Golf Circle members,” said the expectant Reed. “It’ll be an unforgettable experience for us all.”
Every Porsche customer can become a member of the Porsche Golf Circle. The platform offers an app for both Android and iOS. Members can use them to network with other people in the community. Additionally, there is a wide range of information about Porsche and golf. It includes exciting insights, tips and stories relating to the community. What’s more members can regularly meet up at top international events.
