Results of Game 1

The first game of the year’s Diplomats Challenge 2018 was held on 10 April 2018 at the Raffles Country Club Lake course. Our team won the challenge in the first round although the Diplomats gave us a very good fight. 8 Ambassadors and diplomats played and we had a good sign up of 16 Press Club members playing for their rankings in our annual Press Club Golf Challenge 2018.

Topping the Leaderboard, based on stableford points, was:

  1. Dicky Goh
  2. Spencer Robinson
  3. Ven Sreenivasan

The Press Club hosted the players and the diplomats to the post-game lunch and our President presented our Press Club farewell gifts to the Swiss Ambassador Thomas Kupfer and Peruvian Ambassador Manuel Talavera who are leaving their Singapore postings.

Signing off with this quote from Arnold Palmer: Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.
