Skal Alpen Golf Challenge 2023: An Alpine Journey of Fellowship and Sportsmanship

In a change of course, this year’s edition of the Skal Alpen Golf Challenge is set to embrace the scenic beauty of Engadine, where the alpine air meets the allure of the golfing greens. The event, initially planned for the Lake Constance area, takes a detour to Engadine, returning to the birthplace of its inaugural edition in Switzerland back in 2019. The Challenge has embarked on a journey that traversed the heart of the main alpine countries: Italy in 2020, Germany in 2021, and Austria in 2022. Now, the circle commences its second rotation, revisiting its origins.

Anticipation is building for this intimate yet exuberant gathering of Skalleagues, along with their partners and friends, who are set to revel in the spirit of camaraderie. The Skal Alpen Golf Challenge uniquely melds the conviviality of social interaction with the competitive edge of a golf tournament.

The primary objective is to foster a diverse guest list representing all the alpine countries. Each Skal member is wholeheartedly invited, regardless of their point of origin. Should you have inquiries or require further information, please feel free to reach out; my contact information is provided in the registration form.
