Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
It is no coincidence that in the same year Audi of America sold over 100,000 units for the first time, Audi dealers hosted an unprecedented 60 Audi quattro Cup tournaments throughout the United States in 2010. As sales continue to accelerate, the demand for this unique brand experience is higher than ever, and Jim Ellis Audi is excited to announce it will be hosting the Audi quattro Cup 2011 local competition at Legacy on Lanier Golf Club on June 9, 2011.
With over 87,000 competitors worldwide, and 5,000 golfers competing on the local level, 2010 proved the Audi quattro Cup is the largest amateur golf tournament in the world for a reason: participants raved about their experience, especially those fortunate enough to advance to the U.S. Final on picturesque Kiawah Island, SC.
This year, golfers will find even more competitive inspiration as they set their sights on what is sure to be a coveted berth in the 2011 U.S. Final. After spending the past few years on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, the U.S. Audi quattro Cup will culminate at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler, WI. This golf mecca will give competitors the rare chance to walk in the footsteps of champions as they chart their own course to victory. As the site of the 2004, 2010 and 2015 PGA Championship, as well as the 2007 U.S. Senior Open and the 2020 Ryder Cup, the selection of Whistling Straits makes clear that the Audi quattro Cup is no ordinary golf tournament, but rather an experience designed for the most avid of golfers.
"The Audi quattro Cup immerses golfers in the absolute best of the brand," said Tracie Dean, general manager of Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta. "Jim Ellis Audi is proud to bring this unique experience to Atlanta and be part of something that really was created to celebrate the excitement of amateur golfing."
Jim Ellis Audi is one of 70 dealerships hosting local competitions nationwide, a new record for the brand since the tournament was first played stateside in 1999. Each dealership will in turn advance its winning twosome to the U.S. Final (August 26–28) to decide which two amateur teams Audi of America will send to represent the United States in the World Final at Mission Hills Golf Course in China (November 7–11).
