On June 11th and 12th three tournaments took place at the Sierra Golf Club golf course in Pętkowice: the second edition of the SKAT International Golf Cup 2016, Junior Golf Cup 2016 and the SKAT Friendly Team Tournament 2016. Over 200 players, invited guests and employees of the SKAT Group participated in the events.
The weather was good and the conditions on the golf course helped achieve outstanding results and set new personal records.
Players from 16 clubs in Poland and abroad participated in the SIGC 2016 tournament. Lech Sokołowski (Sierra GC) was the winner in the Stroke Play Gross category, with Anna Rydzkowska (Sierra GC) winning the Stableford Net 0-18 category and Dominika Zbychorska (First Warsaw G&CC) winning the Stableford Net 18.1-36 category.
A large number of Juniors participated in the tournament, the young players achieving impressive results, with the winner in the Junior category being Maksymilian Biały (Tokary GC). The tournament had the honour of welcoming Jerzy Dudek, that famoust football player and excellent golfer. Mariusz Czerkawski (legendary NHL hockey player) was the special guest for the event.
The SKAT Group has been supporting young players of the SPS SKAT Olimpic Gdańsk football club for many years now, but this year it decided to promote golf among the youngest players as well. The Junior Golf Cup 2016 was attended by several dozen children, who competed for prizes on Sunday, June 12th. Among the older Juniors the winner was Patrycja Ryszewska (Sierra GC) while the younger group was won by Wiktor Milewski (Sierra GC). The awards were handed out to the Juniors by Mariusz Czerkawski, who on a daily basis not only promotes hockey but is also an ambassador for golf among children and youths.
This year’s event has attracted a lot of interest and the golf tournament organised by the SKAT Group has become a permanent fixture in the calendar of sporting events.
Come and join us next year, at SIGC 2017!
