Club Managers’ Association (Singapore) Inaugural Golf Get-Together & Networking Night

Friday, 18 Aug 2017 – The Club Managers’ Association (Singapore) recently held its inaugural Golf Get-Together & Networking Night at the Champions Public Golf Course & Picotin Express at Bukit Timah.

A total of 45 golfers participated in the networking golf friendly that afternoon. Blessed with fine weather, the golfers were able to complete the casual 9-hole course before handing in their scorecards and settling down for some post-game refreshments at the scenic alfresco terrace of Picotin Express.
