Swiss chapter: Vlerick Solvay & Friends International Golf Tournament

Category: Alumni Events

During 2011 the Swiss Alumni of both Vlerick and Solvay organised the first  "Alumni Vlerick-Solvay Swiss Golf Challenge" in Geneva.
Thanks to its success last time around we wanted to internationalise this networking event and open it up this year to all Vlerick and Solvay Alumni.

Extra information:

We offer you a great golf competition (or for beginners a golf clinic) on one of the oldest French Golf courses on the afternoon of Friday September 7th.

And, why not,  offer the opportunity to spend a long week-end in Geneva at a very affordable price. So, block the date in our agendas now!.....Absolutely something to still look forward to after your summer holidays!
