As part of the celebrations, the industry leading showcase will partner with the French champagne house for the fourth consecutive year.

"The house has a long tradition of golf practice, with the creation of Les Bulles Laurent-Perrier International Tournament.
"There are many common values between these two worlds: the love and respect of nature and open space, passion and excellence.
"All these supported by the fact of sharing a memorable outdoors experience sublimated by tasting a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne, a true vin de plaisir."
