A highly successful fifth round of the 2003 OMEGA Swiss Golf Trophies series


Round five of the OMEGA Swiss Golf Trophies was a phenomenal success, with a large turnout of 136 participants - including numerous VIPs from the world of finance and sport - enjoying a great day of golf in perfect weather conditions. The OMEGA Swiss Golf Trophies reflects OMEGA's commitment to golf at local as well as at international level. This was the fifth round in a series of twelve: the winners of every match will go on to play each other in the Grand Final in Crans-Montana, organised so as to coincide with the OMEGA European Masters which takes place at the same resort from 4-7 September. This fifth round was co-organised by the prestigious watch manufacturer OMEGA and retailer "Iten - Uhren& Schmuck" based in Zug. The Ennetsee Golf Club was the venue chosen to host the match. <br/> <br/>

Prominent personalities from the world of finance and sport gathered under the blazing sunshine to tackle the Ennetsee Club course. Amongst those present were Hausi Leutenegger (finance specialist), Conradin Cathommen (former ski champion), Erich Scherrer (former Bobsleigh champion) and Mr Stefan Schmidlin (one half of the comedy duo "Schmierinskis") who came with his wife, Dorte. The former ski star Martin Hangl also participated and his performance was particularly commendable.

Participants could enjoy the stunning views of Lake Zug from the green. The weather was exceptionally hot (over 30 degrees) and the cold refreshments served at almost every hole were greatly appreciated by all.

Mr Bruno Iten, manager of the Iten Uhren & Schmuck retailers in Zug was delighted with the outcome of the event. He said, "The tournament was a complete success thanks to the organisational skills of members of the Ennetsee Golf Club. It was a pleasure to meet such friendly, helpful and fascinating people. Business has also been good "it's great to know that the Club members like watches as well as golf!"

The next round of the 2003 OMEGA Swiss Golf Trophies will take place on 21 June at the Otelfingen Golf Club near Zurich. This Club is managed by Migros and numerous Migros VIPs are expected to attend. The next match will be co-organised by the OMEGA Flagship store in Zurich: this will be the first time that the event is co-organised by one of the brand's Flagship stores.
