What is the MercedesTrophy?

The MercedesTrophy is an exclusive international invitation tournament series for Mercedes-Benz customers and potential customers who are golf enthusiasts. Every year more than 60,000 golfers in over 60 countries tee off for the MercedesTrophy. In 2014 it celebrates its 25th anniversary, which means that for a quarter of a century it has provided all participating golfers worldwide with an absolutely exciting, top-class golfing experience.In 1989 Mercedes-Benz began to hold a tournament series for amateurs at national level. In 1991 both the format and the name were changed, and the first MercedesTrophy for customers and friends of Mercedes-Benz took place. The tournament series has now established itself as an event taking place on every continent.
The MercedesTrophy currently has a three-stage tournament structure. First there are invitation tournaments at local level, in which players can qualify for the national finals (as is the case in Germany) or the regional finals (for example in the Latin American region). The highlight is the world final, which is traditionally held in Stuttgart in September. Once again this year, the 2014 MercedesTrophy World Final is being officially hosted by Golf Club Schloss Nippenburg e.V. and Stuttgarter Golf-Club Solitude e.V.
Those who qualify for the global final will be the players who have won the national or regional final in their countries/regions. Play will be according to the Stableford scoring system in three net categories, whereby at each hole the player receives what are known as Stableford points based on the number of strokes taken.
As different handicap systems are used around the world, the MercedesTrophy World Final is played according to the official rules of the German Golf Association (DGV). The general golfing etiquette of DGV and the rules of the hosting golf club therefore apply.
