Fantastic company and great swings at the Nordic Open Golf!

The Nordic Open Golf 2019, powered by Volvo, turned out to be, yet again, a great success! 50 players spent a lovely day at the Els Club, Dubai, competing over the trophy and the grand prize of a return flight ticket with Emirates!

The Nordic Open Golf is, as many of you know, a tradition with the Swedish Business Council and a very appreciated event. We invite our members and their extended network the to this day of golfing, mingling, networking and good food along some fab company. The day on the course is followed by an awards dinner where our non-golfing members add to the guest list. 

This is also when the grand prize is awarded to the winner of the tournament. This year the Emirate return flight ticket to Stockholm/Copenhagen was awarded to Jari Tuominen. Big congrats and well done!
