2017 Golf Tournament Report

by Lynn Moyers on September 7, 2017

Perfect temperature and a well-manicured course made for a great day of golf for 66 members and friends at the 57th annual event, presented by Delta Air Lines.

Did you know that Delta runs the only non-stop direct service between PDX and Tokyo?

Alongside 12 trophies and a number of great prizes, players participated as a member of Team Japan or Team USA, and vied for the 2nd annual Friendship Cup in a Ryder Cup-style event, sponsored by Sapporo Premium Beer. Team USA once again edged out Team Japan, and Team USA Captain, Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt, accepted the trophy while Team Japan Captain, Consul Suda, consoled his team.

With many thanks to so many organizations and individuals that helped, the event continues to be an important fundraiser for JASO, in addition to helping businesses build stronger relationships with each other.
