Golf is gradually gaining fans in our country. That is why it is not surprising that there were a lot of foreign amateurs among the participants of MercedesTrophy Azerbaijan. However, it should be noted that domestic golfers were not inferior to them in terms of their ability to reach the cherished hole, or on regulated excitement for the realization of this goal which caused considerable interest among those who witnessed elegant and stylish action which equates this sport to elite ones. And while the ‘masters of the clubs’ showed excellent results on the golf course, a master class in golf was organized for all the guests of the Mercedes-Benz by the main golf professional at Dreamland Golf Club - Alex Day. Owners of Mercedes-Benz cars, as well as invited guests fought in various categories: Group A (0-18.4), Group B (18.5-36.0) and Group C (0-36.0).
