Grant Thornton Wins the 2018 AmCham Cup

The weather was perfect for the 17th annual AmCham Cup Golf Tournament, which took place at the prestigious Simon’s Golf Club north of Copenhagen and was sponsored by AC Hotel Bella Sky Copenhagen.

This year’s tournament featured 21 teams (80 players) from all sectors of Denmark’s International business community – all competing for the coveted AmCham Cup, and many fantastic prizes.

Golfers began the day at 7 am with a hearty “American” breakfast at Simon’s Lakeside Restaurant and a course briefing by AmCham’s Stephen Brugger. The tournament’s format, Texas Scramble – ‘Drop Out’ Stroke Play, kept golfers on their toes and ensured everyone had a great day.

In a close team competition, Grant Thornton won the 2018 AmCham Cup, just ahead of Google in second and Njord Law Firm in third.

Once again, the highlight of the awards ceremony was a drawing for a gift certificate towards Icelandair tickets to any of its 17 destinations in the U.S. and Canada.

However, no matter what the prize, everyone was clearly delighted to soak up the late summer sun on a truly great course.
