Player reactivation and retention specialist Enteractive has partnered with the Ex Pat Golf Society in Malta to present the Enteractive Cup, a Europe versus rest of the world golf tournament dubbed the ‘mini Ryder Cup’.
With both sides to boast a number of business leaders, twelve different nationalities will be taking part in this inaugural, first-of-its-kind golf event at the Royal Malta Golf Club.
Andrew Foster, head of business development at Enteractive, commented on the opportunity: “We’re proud to sponsor this headline golfing event in Malta, hosting some fantastic players and providing a worthy alternative to the official Ryder Cup.
“It’s a great way for Enteractive to enjoy time with existing clients and to provide an opportunity for everyone to get involved in some healthy competition.”
While the official Ryder Cup has been rescheduled for September 21-26, 2021, to be taking place at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Haven, Wisconsin, the Ex Pat Golf Society is aiming to fill the void with its local tournament on the island group.
The Europe versus rest of the world event will take place over three days from Friday 25 September to Sunday 27 September, with Enteractive designated as the official tournament sponsor and will subsequently be presenting a trophy for the 2020 winning team.
The tournament will see 25 players representing each side, with 16 players being selected to play on each day of the event. A draw for Sunday’s singles match-play will be made on the Saturday evening.
Neill Simpson, founder of the SPORTSvox Ex Pat Golf Society, added: “We’re thrilled to have Enteractive as the headline sponsor for this inaugural event. The competition is sure to be fierce!
“Given all the golfers will be missing out on watching the real Ryder Cup action, it’s nice to be able to offer an alternative and something that everyone can look forward to.”
