Close to 100 players defied the poring rain and bravely participated in the 23rd Annual Swedish Embassy Open at beautiful Raspberry Falls Golf and Hunt Club in Leesburg, VA. Players enjoyed a Swedish-American breakfast as well as a cookout barbecue lunch and theyÂ all did their best to win the hole-in-one prize Â– a brand new Volvo carÂ – although no one succeeded.Â Â A big thank you goes out to allÂ sponsors for their contributions and to Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club for their fantastic service and expertise, making this tournament reach its high standard.
