Second Annual Moscow Alumni Golf Tournament 2017 Completed
On July 15th, 2017, the Moscow Alumni Golf Tournament 2017 took place at the Moscow City Golf Club. The event was supported by the Moscow Alumni Association, and attracted graduates, staff and students of several universities.
Despite the forecasts, the weather was favourable, and the competition took place on a warm and dry day.
The contest finished with a victory for the students over the alumni. Vera Markevich from UCLA took gold. Vladislav Blazhennov, student of the Russian Foreign Trade Academy took silver, and Mariam Kaprielova, MIPT student, came third.
HSE students, graduates and staff didn’t win prizes, but enjoyed the game and got medals as participants.
Some of the event participants had never held golf clubs before. For them, a training session was organized. They also had an opportunity to join the players on the course as caddies to get a taste of the game.
The tournament organizers would like to thanks everyone who took part in the event, as well as to the Moscow City Golf Club and in particular, Issa Malsagov and Dmitry Gagua for help in organizing the tournament.
