The MercedesTrophy is an exclusive invitation tournament series for Mercedes-Benz customers and potential customers, who are golf enthusiasts. It started out as a tournament series for amateurs at national level in 1989. Then in 1991, both format and the name were changed, and the first MercedesTrophy for customers and friends of Mercedes-Benz took place.
The MercedesTrophy currently has a three-stage tournament structure. First there are invitation tournaments at local level, in which players can qualify for the national finals (as is the case in Germany). The highlight is the world final, which is traditionally held in Stuttgart, Germany.
Those who qualify for the global final will be the players who have won the national in their countries/regions. Play will be according to the Stableford scoring system in three net categories, whereby at each hole the player receives what are known as Stableford points based on the number of strokes taken.
As different handicap systems are used around the world, the MercedesTrophy World Final is played according to the official rules of the German Golf Association (DGV). The general golfing etiquette of DGV and the rules of the hosting golf club therefore apply.
This year, the MercedesTrophy Indonesia is in its 25th Edition. Despite four edition short of its 28 years since its first inception, MercedesTrophy Indonesia has been proven as the most consistent golf tournament ever held by any automotive brand in Indonesia. It is also the longest golf tournament for customers runs by a luxury automotive brand in the Archipelago. If the first MercedesTrophy can be traced back in 1989 and its global presence was started in 1991, the MercedesTrophy Indonesia was held for the first time in 1992, just a year after the event became a world wide tournament series. For its 25th edition of MercedesTrophy Indonesia, once again, all loyal customers and friends of Mercedes-Benz are welcomed to sign up for the 2021 MercedesTrophy Indonesia.
