A Hole In One For AmCham Thanksgiving Golf Tournament
Dubbed the most anticipated AmCham Indonesia event of the year, the Thanksgiving Golf Tournament once again lived up to its name, adding a lot fun to the Thanksgiving week.
The 2022 Thanksgiving Day Golf Tournament at the Emeralda Golf Club on Nov 24 successfully drew 148 enthusiastic players. The Texas Scramble party started early in the morning, with a delicious breakfast and a chance for golfers to finally meet again after a two-year pause.
President Director and CEO of AIG Insurance Indonesia Robert Logie and USAID Mission Director Jeffery Cohen hit the smoke ball to kick off the event. It was a perfect day for golf, as the sky cleared and the sun came out just as the players drove away in their buggies to play.
After the game, players indulged in the traditional Thanksgiving meal provided by our Diamond Sponsor, JS Luwansa Hotel & Convention Center Jakarta. AmCham Managing Director A Lin Neumann then took the stage to conduct the lucky draw and announce the winning team.
Congratulations to the foursome: Noah Haji, Seema Haji, Eli Moselle and Annemarie Kraan. Aaron Nio, Andrew Lee, Chris Sebastian and William Sjaichudin took second place, followed by Gaurav Shirke, Fernando Gaggino, Srinivas Murthy and Willi Goldschmidt.
A big round of applause for Marcell Heilijigers, who won the Nearest to the Pin trophy at 125 cm; Marco Sebastian for hitting the Longest Drive at 278 meters; Brian Dusza for winning the Nearest to the Turkey novelty prize; and Wida Landry for landing the ball 3 cm from the pumpkin.
Also, congratulations to the winners of a Samsung TV 65-inch sponsored by the Korean Chamber of Commerce (Rezky Supriadi), 85,000 miles of JAL Milage Bank sponsored by Japanese Airlines and American Airlines (Lucas Sheard), and return tickets for Jakarta-Istanbul-Jakarta from Turkish Airlines (Lee Kang Hyun).
AmCham also expresses gratitude to all of the tournament sponsors. Thank you to the Diamond Sponsor, The JS Luwansa Hotel & Convention Center Jakarta; and the Platinum Sponsors, Exxon Mobil and Oakwood Premier Cozmo Jakarta. We also thank all of our Gold Sponsors, Silver Sponsors and Partners.
We hope to celebrate Thanksgiving with you again next year. Happy Thanksgiving!
