Diplomacy on the golf course

On September 8, the traditional Ambassadors Golf Cup took place again on the golf course of the Märkischen Golfclub Potsdam in Phöben. For the 16th time Dr.h.c. Mania Feilcke-Dierck, President of the Ambassadors Club, invited to this extraordinary event.
Once again, many ambassadors from all over the world accepted the invitation and played for the coveted Lalique cup, tried out their skills during the beginners course and enjoyed the dinner followed by a raffle.

This year several ambassadors took part in the raffle with great prizes. The Ambassador of the Maldives, H.E. Jameela Ali Khalid handed over a coupon for five nights at the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma in the Maldives. And the Ambassador of South Africa, H.E. Phumelele S. Sizani, supported the raffle with a flight to South Africa. Also, the new sponsor of the Ambassadors Club, EMIRATES, presented itself with tournament prizes for the players and a main prize in the raffle: a business class travel flight to Dubai. The Ambassador of Brunei, I.E. Rakiah Hj Abd Lamit, was amazed to receive this prize.

This year’s winner of the challenge cup was the Ambassador of South Africa, S.E. Phumelele S. Sizani. This beautiful trophy will be on display in his embassy or residence over the next twelve months.
