Very Close Race at the KONE Nordic Masters 2010

On Saturday November 20th 2010, The Thai-Finnish Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual, prestigious golf tournament the Nordic Masters. This year’s battlefield was the beautiful and very challenging Banyan Golf Club in Hua Hin. In order to celebrate their 100 years anniversary, KONE (Finnish Elevator and Escalator Company) decided to step in as Title sponsor of the tournament.
Before 76 international golfers went on the course, they had a chance to get tips and tricks from the USPGA Pro Mr. Doug Hood on the driving range. The Finnish Ambassador to Thailand was very grateful; as this was her first ever round of golf!
The organizers, Londal Consulting, again this year decided the playing format to be Team Average Stableford. It was truly amazing to see how the team members cheered each other on, when trying to make their putts on the very difficult greens at Banyan Golf Course.
At the end of the day they saw a very tight race at the top of the leader board. Team Meinhardt was crowned as winners, but only 1.25 average point separated 1st and 6th place.
The following Gala Dinner was a superb finish to a great day. Mr. Lars Londal from Londal Consulting and the President of the Thai-Finnish Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Marc Spiegel, ran the Raffle’s Draw and the Live Auction. The loyal sponsors had provided them with outstanding gifts and prizes and they quickly ran out of Raffle’s tickets.
The next golf tournament hosted by the Thai-Finnish Chamber of Commerce will be The Ambassador’s Cup 2011. The tournament will be played at a premier golf course, so please stay tuned at for more information.
