About the Golf Cup International.
Welcome to the 2017 BMW Golf Cup International (GCI) - the 24th year that this prestigious event is taking place in South Africa. The BMW Golf Cup International traces its roots back more than a quarter century ago to a British based initiative, called the BMW Invitation Tournament. This Tournament was only hosted in the UK for five years before expanding to Germany. Ten years after inception, the BMW Invitation Tournament was renamed the BMW Golf Cup International and become an international competition for amateur golfers. Today, with more than 100 000 amateur participants, from more than 46 nations, the BMW Golf Cup International is the most renowned and largest amateur golf tournament in the world. Qualifying tournaments in the respective nations pave the road to the once in a lifetime experience - competing in the prestigious and coveted BMW GCI World Final.
