As the starting date of Commercial Bank’s Qatar Masters 2020 is approaching, Commercial Bank and Doha Golf Club have moved the Mother of Pearl Trophy from Doha Golf Club to Education City Golf Club where Commercial Bank’s Qatar Masters 2020 will take place from the 5th till 8th of March, 2020. The majestic Mother of Pearl Trophy is considered a symbol of the rich Qatari heritage, as pearl diving and trading have been the mainstay and backbone of the Qatari culture and identity for so long, evoking historical significance and strong social and emotional bonds amongst Qataris. Just like its name implies, the Mother of Pearl Trophy is unique, strong, resilient, and is a source of pride to those who own and carry it.

The Qatar Olympic Committee and the Qatar Golf Association are excited and looking forward with great anticipation to yet another successful Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.” Speaking on behalf of Education City Golf Club, the General Manager Michael Braidwood stated: “It gives us great pleasure to receive the iconic Qatar Masters trophy to our premises. The trophy will take pride of place in our club house lobby and will allow golf enthusiasts to take a closer look at it and have a picture with it. I am sure it will inspire all golfers who enter Education City Golf Club.” Commercial Bank Qatar Masters has witnessed high attendance in 2019 and was broadcast to a global TV audience of over 450 million viewers. For the 23rd Edition of the event, all eyes will be on Doha as the biggest names in the sport compete for the Mother of Pearl Trophy on one of the newest golf courses.
