The Mercedes Trophy UK

A National competition for discerning customers ~

The Mercedes Trophy UK

One of the World's largest amateur competitions

Luna Golf are delighted to look after two National Golf Tournaments on behalf of Mercedes-Benz, including this, the MercedesTrophy. The MercedesTrophy is one of the most prestigious and exclusive amateur competitions on the UK golfing calendar, and for over 20 years both existing and potential customers of Mercedes-Benz have been taking part in this fantastic golf tournament.

THE FORMAT

Budding golfers from across the UK who drive a Mercedes-Benz (or are considering doing so) are invited to the competition in early spring for the first of five stages – a Retail Outlet Golf Day. These days are a great opportunity to see new products and enjoy a round of golf as a thank you for buying into one of the most distinguished brands in the World.

The competition soon heats up, with the top players qualifying to a Market Area Final. At this tournament there are just three valuable qualifying spots on offer, with the leading individual from each of three handicap categories forming a Market Area representative team at a MercedesTrophy Regional Final.

The Regional Finals include 18 holes Team Stableford at a championship venue, as well as dinner and accommodation at a local boutique hotel. Qualifiers to the Regional Finals are sure to enjoy some terrific hospitality, but for a lucky few it’s just the start of things, with nine teams qualifying to enjoy the delights of the National Final.

The UK National Final is the culmination of a season of fine golf and first class hospitality, with guests treated to 4 nights at a top European Golf Resort and 54 holes of golf.

Many of the testimonials on this site refer to just how impressive the National Final is, as players enjoy Trick Shot shows and video commentary from David Edwards, video compilations of all the action, personalised photo montages, some fantastic food and wine, and most notably the company of so many great characters that make the MercedesTrophy National Final a truly unforgettable experience.

Furthermore, three lucky individuals go on a stage further and represent the UK at the MercedesTrophy World Final, held at the home of Mercedes-Benz in Stuttgart. At this event in Germany, there are some 30 different National Teams enjoying an unbelievable brand experience and competing for the biggest prize of all, the Mercedes-Benz Nations Trophy.

If you are a Mercedes-Benz owner or a prospective owner, and you would like to play in this fantastic competition, then please contact us and we’ll ensure your local Market Area know you’re keen to participate.
