This fantastic event couldn’t have happened without the great support from our Platinum sponsors, Socar Cape and Bos Shelf. Playing in the event were corporate teams and also teams playing as Dreamland Golf Club.
It was one of these Dreamland teams that went on to be crowned the 2016 Azerbaijan Open champions – Dean McEwan, Scott Donaldson, Daniel Lee and Stuart King.

“The Inaugural 2016 Dreamland Azerbaijan Open has been a very big success for golf in the country, we are delighted the 80 golfers have enjoyed the weekends format. The event has been created allowing corporate teams the chance to enter and represent their business or brand, without the help of Socar Cape and Bos Shelf the event would not have been possible. Special mention must be given to the Azerbaijan Junior Team players competing in the event as part of their development” commented Phil Jones Dreamland Golf Club General Manager.
