The AmCham China Sporting Committee and AseanPlus introduced our first AmCham China – AseanPlus Friendly Golf Tournament on October 21. AseanPlus is a long-standing Beijing-based group of prominent executives and officials from the ASEAN region who love to play golf and network with members of other business communities. The companies came together with the purpose of providing golfers of all levels an opportunity to play on some of Beijing's greatest golf courses at a reasonable price. Their passions combined with AmCham China's dynamic members made for a great event.
Although the tournament kicked off with a delay due to road closures in Beijing, it did not hamper the commitment of almost 35 golfers who signed up and were determined to play. Participants hit the links at the beautiful Orient Pearl Golf Club early in the morning, followed by a private buffet lunch and an awards ceremony with a lucky draw.
The AmCham China Sporting Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all the golfers who participated, as well as AseanPlus for our successful collaboration together. Our members are looking forward to the next event.
