Golf is quite an exotic game for our country and therefore remains a secret to this day. For example, they say this is quite a boring sport. Some people think this game is mainly for the elderly. But, as you know, it's better to play golf once, than to hear about it a thousand times.
A unique for Belarus project – IT-Triumph was held at our club. We invited the representatives of local IT-companies to make an introduction to the philosophy of golf by passing a two-week intensive training under the guidance of our experienced coaches. The final of the project was a two-day tournament between the participating companies.
Participating teams: SK Hynix Memory Solutions Eastern Europe, FrontByte, IDLab, Realt.by, Devby + ROMI and others.
In total, six 4-people teams took part in the tournament. To make the game more intriguing, the junior golfers from our club took part in the tournament as the 7th flight. They participated in the tournament out of the competition.
Each tournament day, the players passed 9 holes overcoming a distance of about 10 km. At the end of the competition, everyone acknowledged that golf is a very emotional and addictive sport. Moreover, it is a great cardio load and a nice pastime. Many promised to return to our golf club after the end of the project.
We were very pleased with the results of our juniors - on the first day, the guys managed to take a leading position. In general, juniors have achieved excellent results, and this means that the young generation of golfers is growing and developing, and, most likely, will very soon show themselves at international competitions.
The intrigue was waiting for everyone at the awards ceremony - two teams scored an equal number of shots. A replay was announced from the 100-meter mark on the 18th hole. The third prize went to the IDLab team - the ball was skillfully sent into the hole in two shots.
All winners were awarded prizes and cups at our awards ceremony. In addition to the three prizes, there were players who won in special nominations - Closest to the Pin and Long Drive. In a warm and friendly atmosphere, our players and guests shared their emotions and received congratulations on their bright start in the world of golf.
We thank all the participants who took part in this project and learnt how to play from scratch, as well as our partners who helped to organize a wonderful and beautiful project final.
