All set for another round
BT Corporate Golf League will once again bring together top executives on the fairways.
THE dates for this year’s The Business Times Corporate Golf League have been confirmed, and a number of new and familiar team names have signed up early to compete once again on some of Singapore’s premier courses.
The six rounds will take place on some of the country’s premier courses such as Tanah Merah Country Club’s Garden and Tampines courses, Singapore Island Country Club’s New Course, Jurong Country Club, Raffles Country Club and Seletar Country Club.
Says Murali Subramaniam, general manager of organiser SPH Golf: “We are delighted with the interest attracted once again from Singapore’s business community in The Business Times Corporate Golf League, which this year celebrates its seventh edition.
“In addition to opportunities for networking and catching up with old and new friends, the league promises once again to deliver fun, entertainment and competitiveness on some of Singapore’s finest golf courses.”
Defending champions Boustead, who have been involved with the league in either a player or sponsor capacity since it started in 2010, are back to once again compete in the competition category.
Team captain Adrian Chu, who led the team to glory last year, says: “It’s going to be tough defending against the likes of Team SunMoon and Sultans of Swing this year.
“So, we plan to not put too much pressure on ourselves, enjoy each other’s company as we have not been playing much golf together since the tournament last year and hopefully play some decent golf during the tournament. I hope that we can still be in the top three by the end of the tournament.”
Says Mr Chu: “ROI is hard to measure for sponsorships like this as everything is so intangible. We just want our team to bond further and hopefully in the process, build on existing relationships with clients and introduce ourselves to potential business partners and clients.
“Winning a second title would definitely boost ROI and so would securing a contract to design-and-build a facility for a corporate that we meet in due course.”
Another loyal supporter has been Emerio, a global IT services provider, who returns both as a valued sponsor (S$20,000 package) and a team in the competition category.
Explains Harish Nim, Emerio’s CEO and team captain: “The Business Times Corporate Golf League is the premier golf fixture in Singapore. How not to join if it gives me six great challenging games with like-minded business executives who love to work hard and party hard?”
The Business Times Corporate Golf League 2016 presented by Audi Singapore tees off on June 30 on Tanah Merah Country Club’s Tampines Course.
