About 80 golfers showed up for SACC-DCÂ’s annual golf tournament: Swedish Embassy Open 2012, at Raspberry Falls Golf and Hunt Club in Leesburg, VA, on October 25th.  Players enjoyed a Swedish-American breakfast – including the traditional pickled herring and ‘Kalles Kaviar’ – and enjoyed the course and its beautiful setting throughout the day. Unfortunately, no one managed to win the brand new Volvo XC60 for the hole-in-one competition, even though some were very close!

In the evening, the award cermony was held at H.E. Jonas Hafström’s residence where guests were treated to an amazing buffet and refreshments. We greatly appreciate the generosity and hospitality of Ambassador Hafström and his wife Mrs. Eva Hafström and thank them for opening their home to us. Next year’s Swedish Embassy Open will be held on Thursday, October 24th, 2012. Be sure to mark the date in your calendar already now to not miss out on this important and fun networking event!

A big thank you goes out to all sponsors for their contributions and to Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club for their fantastic service and expertise, making this tournament reach its high standard! Please visit and ‘like’ our Facebook-page to see photos from the day!
