(MENAFN Press) Commercial Bank International (CBI) organized a Corporate Golf Day for its Auto and Mortgage partners on May 7th at the Montgomerie Golf Club in Dubai.

Amateur golfers drawn essentially from the Bank's clients and partners in Dubai and Abu Dhabi participated in the event and competed for the team and individual honours.

The event started with registration at 7:00 am and was held in Matchplay format with a total of 15 matches played over 18 holes. Five 'Fourball' pairings from each team played over 18 holes in the morning, and 10 singles matches were played over 9 holes in the afternoon. The game was followed by prize distribution and dinner.

Kris Babicci, CBI's CEO, who was among the players of the day, commented on the event: "Sport embodies the strong values embraced by CBI, anchored in Passion, Accessibility, Commitment, and Trust. The Golf Day reflects CBI's appreciation for the loyalty and constant support extended by its corporate partners and clients. It is meant to reflect the spirit of competition, performance, fair play, and transparency that CBI is known for and that we like to share and enjoy with our partners and customers."

Expressing his satisfaction with the event, David Power, CBI's Head of Retail Banking, who was also participating as a golf player, stated: "We had great feedback from all golfers and invitees. Our Golf Day is gaining popularity among our clients and partners who see it as a great networking opportunity in a truly pleasant and enjoyable format."

CBI held a similar Golf Event in December last year. The CBI Corporate Golf Day is one of many events in the Bank's calendar of engagement activities aiming to build and strengthen relationships with its customers and partners outside the work environment.
