With 30 entrants making it the largest-ever field there was a tense struggle for the top places and, of course, the highly coveted John D. Mackie Quaich (a.k.a. “Jock’s Pot”) which is awarded to the top performing member of the society.

Thanks to the very generous sponsors of the event, in addition to spectacular prizes, every attendee was greeted with a groaning goodie bag, worth well in excess of the cost of entry, especially with prices subsidized by a very generous donation. The luxury tote bags (plus flat caps and balls) from Arquitectonica, included a golf gift set from AIA, a miniature of Ballantines, a money clip and Pitchfix from JS Watch of Reykjavik, and a full bottle of Four Fox Saké. Cigars were available for every player and, courtesy of the HK Golfer Store, every hole in one, on any hole, would win a luxury Swiss watch worth HK$25k.
