GOLF

FORE!!! You can now book your spot for the American Club Golf Challenge, Sweden’s second longest-running golf tournament. We are booked for a shotgun start with 40-60 golfers, and look forward to spectators/guests and sponsors participating as well! The tournament will be followed by a prize ceremony and meal together with car drivers and guests. Participation fees for members and guests are listed below and include greens fee, start kit, and many exclusive prizes. Please see instructions for registration and payment below.

At stake are four Cups and additional contests:

  • Club Champion with the best gross score (strokeplay);
  • Best Stableford result;
  • Best Net score (handicap) and
  • Best Ladies score (Stableford)
  • Longest Drive (in honor of our late long-time member, golf enthusiast and tournament organizer, Margaretha Isaacsson)
  • Nearest Hole

The competition is geared for everybody and we typically have a wide range of talent and experience.

CAR LAUNCH/DRIVING

Whether you are playing golf or just want to come out for an exhilarating ride in an exceptional new car, you will not want to miss the launch of Alfa Romeo’s new Guilia. You will get your hands on a car with over 500 horsepower. Test drives from the course provide an introduction, while track time nearby is available for those who want a deeper driving experience.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Since its founding in 1905, the American Club has engaged in community service and supported charitable causes. Since 2010, the Club has prepared and shared an annual Thanksgiving Dinner with Stockholms Stadsmission’s Bostället. As a continuation of our support for Stadsmission, the Club and our sponsors are committing any proceeds from this event to Stockholms Stadsmission.

Som så många andra idrottsklubbar bildades Brandkårens IK i anslutning till de olympiska spelen i Stockholm 1912. Detta skedde den 31 oktober olympiaåret 1912. Initiativtagare var brandförman Johan Grönqvist tillsammans med vice brandchefen Carl Gyllenhammar. Dessa blev också förste klubbsekreterare respektive ordförande. Allmänt var inställningen ganska sval inom brandkåren till att bilda en idrottsklubb. Det ansågs bland annat som ett slag av högfärd att ta på sig en idrottsutrustning för att träna.
