Generously sponsored by Oracle and PwC, the AmCham Golf Tournament celebrated its 22nd anniversary at Hauger Golf Club, bringing together 28 teams comprised of 104 players from all sectors of Norway’s international business community to network and compete for the coveted Søderstrøm Cup and round trip tickets to the US from Norse Atlantic Airways.
The tournament’s format, Texas Scramble and special hole competitions – kept golfers on their toes and ensured everyone had a great day “in the office”.
Gathering for the third and final time at Hauger’s challenging yet picturesque course, this year’s weather could not have been better. Players kept cool in the sun, enjoying refreshing beverages throughout the day, courtesy of Coca-Cola and enjoyed a delicious BBQ dinner buffet al fresco.
In a close team competition, PwC came in first place and walked away with the tournament cup, four round trip tickets from Norse Atlantic Airways to any of their US destinations, as well as prizes provided by Anora, Edrington, Helly Hansen, and Mondelez.
Three teams came in just behind with -14. Determined by handicap, KPMG came in second, just ahead of GE Healthcare in third, and Helly Hansen coming in at fourth. The 2nd and 3rd place winners walked away with prizes from Anora, Hauger Golf Club, Grand Hotel Oslo, Oracle, and Shades of Norway.
As in previous years, several individual prizes were also up for grabs. Bayer’s Andreas Røskaft, earned the “Closest to the pin” taking home American wines courtesy of AmCham. Panamera’s Caroline Martens won the women’s longest drive, taking home an Eleni & Chris hair and skincare set from IC Scandinavia. Global Blue’s Elia Hoelstad captured the men’s prize for longest drive, coming away with a ROAM hair and barber set from IC Scandinavia. Five players competed for the final putt off with Per Arne Evensen (Interim Norge) coming out on top, taking home a gift card from Hotel Bristol, American wines and the Viking Arm tool.
