The first-ever Inter-Chamber Golf Tournament took place in Wrocław on 17 May 2024, featuring 35 participants representing the four chambers organising the event: the BPCC, AmCham, ABSL and the NPCC. Over 150 representatives from member companies also attended, participating in the Golf Academy and the grand networking cocktail that concluded the tournament.

Wrocław Golf Club is a championship-class course designed by the renowned British architect Jeremy Pern, who imparted a links style to the open parts of the course, while the sections running alongside the forest and between picturesque lakes have a parkland style with gentle undulations and numerous ponds.

The tournament featured nine flights, with participants navigating the course’s 18 holes. Additionally, a Hole-in-One contest was held on the 14th hole, with the prize being a week of English and Golf in Torquay, Devon (premium package), including accommodation with a golfing family, sponsored by YouEnglish. Unfortunately, no one managed to win the prize this time, but there’s another chance to compete for it in the September tournament!

Wrocław is a city of collaboration, so despite the competition on the course, the cocktail event provided an excellent opportunity for the Wrocław business community to integrate and establish new connections in a pleasant setting. The Friday picnic-like atmosphere just outside the city was a relaxing way to end the working week. An added attraction was the wine tasting from some of the world’s best vineyards. Most participants also had the chance to learn how to properly hold a golf club and hit the ball, testing their new skills in various golf contests and games organised by the hosts.

I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the companies that made the First Inter-Chamber Golf Tournament possible, which appears to be the beginning of a new networking tradition in Wrocław. Therefore, a big thank you to our main sponsor, Santander Bank Polska, and to Bissole Business Travel, WSSE, BPX, Echo Investment and JLL; to Lux Med for providing medical care for the event and all its participants, as well as to the main prize sponsor KLM Airlines, and to Longevity, the Bridge Hotel Wrocław, Radisson BLU, Hotel Monopol, Dehora, Exclusive Apartments, and to the host, Wrocław Golf Club.
