Reportage from VŠE Alumni Golf Tour May 2022

On Saturday, May 28, 2022, the first Alumni Golf Tournament organized by the Alumni Centre VŠE in cooperation with the Event Centre VŠE took place. Since 9 am, the alumni started gathering at the Golf Course in Hodkovičky in Prague, where the organizers were already waiting for them. After the registrations, the players were enjoying breakfast and meeting with the other participants.

The tournament was free of charge for all the players, only condition was the graduation from the University of Economics in Prague and possession of a green card. Even the participants without an active membership within the Czech Golf Federation weren’t missing the opportunity to enjoy the game. The event was including an accompanying program in the form of “nearest to pin” competition. Catering was provided directly  on the golf course by the CUGA restaurant throughout the day and professional photography wasn’t missing neither.

The tournament itself started at 10 am, players were divided into 14 flights and played 9 holes. In total, more than 50 alumni competed. After   the last players finished the game, all the participants gathered again and waited impatiently for the results to be announced. At first, the best   players within the nearest to pin competition were awarded, then the results of the official tournament were announced. In total of 6 trophies were   handed out to the top players – 3 places in the women’s category and 3 places in the men’s category, each player also received a gift bag from the   partners Česká spořitelna, Kaufland and Moore. The results of the official tournament were counted to the Czech Golf Federation as well. After the awarding ceremony all the participants had a chance to continue with the informal networking while enjoying good food and drinks.

We highly appreciate the large turnout and a good spirit prevailed throughout the tournament. We believe that everyone enjoyed the event, even though the weather was unpredictable at first. We would like to thank the organizers, who made the event run smoothly and provided a rich program. And finally, big thanks go to our partners as well, who made the first VŠE golf tournament feasible.

As the name indicates, we would like to continue with the events of this format also in the future and we believe in realization of the second edition of the VŠE Alumni Golf Tour.
