NUS Business School Golf Reunion Challenge

19 September 2013

The annual NUS Business School Golf Reunion Challenge made its return on a beautiful, sunny day at Jurong Country Club on 19 September 2013. Organised by the three alumni associations - MBA Alumni-NUS, NUS Business School Alumni and NUS Business School Mandarin Alumni, and supported by GANO, the event provided a casual setting where friends and old classmates could get together and bond over a friendly game of golf.

A total of 119 players took part over 31 flights, including alumni as well as faculty and staff. Among the golfers were also overseas alumni who had flown in specially to attend the Golf Challenge.

Spirits were high as alumni mingled and caught up with old friends over lunch on the terrace, while eagerly awaiting tee-off. Some of the avid golfers were so excited that they wandered onto the green to practice putting before the event had even started. That sense of excitement, unity and camaraderie was evident as alumni gathered together for a group shot, pumping their fists in the air. With that, the Golf Challenge was on!

There was a palpable sense of excitement as alumni putted, chipped and drove their way around the course, pitting their skills against each other in friendly competition.

Too soon the Golf Challenge was over and the golfers took a short break to shower and freshen up before the evening festivities, which were held at the Ficus Room.

Emcee for the evening event, Linda Gouw, did a great job of keeping spirits raised and the audience engaged. Alumni took the opportunity between courses to mingle with friends on other tables, share jokes, and raise toasts. It was a rowdy affair with everyone in high celebratory spirits, the best sign of a successful event winding down to its close.

Chairman of the Golf Committee, Joseph Tan, took to the stage to thank all the sponsors for their lucky draw gifts, and to acknowledge the hard work of the organising committee, comprising Yeo Keng Joon, Tan Boon Chin, Colin Chow, Gan Giap Leong, William Tan and Kwek Chok Ming.

The highlight of the night was the presentation of the Golf Challenge winners' cup, which was deservedly claimed by NUS Business School Alumni Association and signified a fitting end to the evening's revelries.
