Porsche Centre Newcastle was delighted to return to Close House on Tuesday 4 June 2019 to host our annual golf competition.
Close House is home to the world’s only two Lee Westwood golf courses and the North East’s only PGA Golf Academy. It was recently announced that the club would be the official venue of the 2020 Betfred British Masters on the European Tour.
After registration and breakfast, guests played on the Filly Course which is an 18 USGA specification green, 6,034 yards long and a par 70 from the medal tee. The event was the first opportunity for guests to view the new Cayenne Coupé which stood proudly on display at the first tee alongside the Porsche 911, Macan, 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman.
Congratulations to Tony Brown who was the overall winner with a score of 40 points, followed by Stuart Richardson and Michael Morris in second and third place. Tony and Stuart will represent Porsche Centre Newcastle at the National Final in September which is being held at St Andrews Links – one of the most renowned golfing locations in the world.
Next year will see the Porsche Golf Cup GB Tour celebrate its twentieth year and preparation is already underway to mark this momentous occasion.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
