The 2003 OMEGA Swiss Golf Trophies is proving to be a highly successful event, as can be seen by the excellent turnout and fine support of the third round held today. The Swiss Golf Trophies is an annual event which reflects prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer OMEGA's commitment to golf at local as well as international level. The OMEGA Swiss Golf Trophies consists of a series of 12 matches: the winners of every match will go on to play against each other in the Grand Final in Crans-Montana, organised so as to coincide with the OMEGA European Masters which will take place from 4-7 September in the same resort.
The Golf Club Lugano in Magliaso played host to the third round which was co-hosted by OMEGA and for the first time by the Tourbillon Boutique, a Swatch Group retailer. The event enjoyed a vast turnout of 152 participants: over twice last year's figure.
Players, a mix of Golf Club members and Tourbillon Boutique customers, as well as local VIPs and prominent personalities, began the day with breakfast at the 9th hole. After a successul day's play, guests enjoyed an apéritif followed by dinner at the Club house. The Club is situated in a picturesque location: 200m from Lake Lugano in the beautiful southern canton of Tessin.
Mrs Antonietta Castelnuovo, representing event co-organiser Tourbillon Boutique, emphasised the success of the day, saying, "This was a wonderful tournament : its success far exceeded our expectations. There was a splendid, relaxed atmosphere and it was great to see such an excellent turnout. The Tourbillon Boutique is proud to support this event and we believe that our presence today affirms our commitment to the sport".
The fourth round in this series of twelve will take place in Interlaken.
