Welcome to Singapore Press Club Golf League. The League among golfing club members was launched at our 2012 tournament on 23 August. Since than, the club and our Golf Convenor has spent time to plan regular golf networking events, the Singapore Press Club Golf Classic (an annual key event), a regional trip and Quarterly Diplomat Challenge games during each calendar year. If you still have not signed up to join the Golf League, you can still do so and take part.
SPC Golf League and Diplomats Challenge 2019 (Game 2) was held on 7 May 2019, Tuesday at Keppel Club. Playing in this 115 years old Golf Club and challenging course was 6 Ambassadors to Singapore namely H.E. Ngurah Swajaya (Indonesia), H.E. Dato’ Zainol Rahim Zainuddin (Malaysia), H. E. James Sinclair Manley (Chile), HE Eric Niclas Kvarnström (Sweden), HE Dr. Ulrich A. Sante (Germany), H.E. Luis Lorvao (Portugal) and H.E. Scott Wightman (UK).

It was a good morning golf game and both sides fought hard. The event ended on a good note – all square for the challenge. After the event, players had a good lunch joined by H.E. Jun Yamazaki (Japan), H.E. Ahn Young-jip (Korea) and Mr. KS Ng (MD, Manroland Goss, Singapore). It was great golf, good fun, interesting conversations and lots of delicious Keppel Club signature dishes to savour. Pictures attached
