A Greater Game of Golf
iGATE CEO Cup has created a thrilling format for a charitable tournament with CEOs representing many of the world's top companies playing for a noble cause.
iGATE, the NASDAQ-listed leading outsourcing services company, in association with Forbes, publisher of Forbes magazine and forbes.com, take the second iGATE CEO Cup Golf tournament international. This first-class championship-style golf tournament will be held March 21 – 22, 2014, at Course No. 2 and Course No. 8 of the legendary Pinehurst Resort & Country Club in North Carolina, USA. Grand Slam champion Gary Player will co-host the iGATE CEO Cup just as he did for the inaugural tournament last year.
In 2014, CEOs of Global 2000 companies will be invited to compete for total prize money of $120,000, with the ‘Player of the Tournament’ winning $40,000 - double the amount of the inaugural event. Winners will donate their prize money to the charities of their choice.
Also at stake is the world’s largest and heaviest gold trophy, designed by India-based Guinness World Record holder, Amit Pabuwal. A priceless creation, the 21-inches-tall iGATE CEO Cup is one and one-half times bigger than the FIFA World Cup trophy - the largest trophy so far. The trophy is made with 8.6 kilograms of gold and emblazoned with diamonds and rubies.
