GPCCI would like to congratulate all participants of the 2016 Ambassador's Cup and address a special Congratulations to the tournament winners!

On 20 October 2016, the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry held its 14th German Ambassador’s Cup, with the cooperation of the German Embassy Manila at the Mount Malarayat Golf & Country Club. Despite a super typhoon passing through the region, the weather spared our more than sixty guests by giving us cloudy to sunny skies.

Present at the ceremonial tee-off were the organizers of the event, Mr. Peter Kompalla (Executive Director of GPCCI), Dr. Andree Buhl (Commercial Counsellor of the German Embassy Manila), Ms. Maan Mariano (Head of BDO’s European Desk) and the German Ambassador’s Cup Chairman, Mr. Klaus Schroeder.

The tournament was followed by a late lunch reception where players were recognized for their outstanding golf play, and enjoyed a raffle draw of prizes.

The Ambassador-designate of the German Embassy Manila, Dr. Gordon Kricke, was also present during the reception to thank the Members and guests for their continued support.

We would like to congratulate the tournament winners:

Ambassador of Lao People’s Democratic Republic to the Philippines, His Excellency Phoxay Khaykhamphithoune, was awarded by winning the tournament’s Lowest Gross

Mr. Paul Gruba as Champion

The tournament was also a collaboration to support the Community Welfare Service Lotus Foundation School and Training Center, Inc.
