Great attractions, all around the theme of golf, and nostalgic funfair elements awaited the guests. The highlight was President Dietmar Hopp’s golden putt: Under the thundering applause of several hundreds of children, he unerringly holed from 20 metres distance, symbolic for 20 years.
Afterwards, the President opened the second part of the anniversary celebration, the official ceremony, introduced by 20 kids from the club. In his witty speech, he remembered the history of St. Leon-Rot Golf Club, which, under his aegis, has become one of the largest sports clubs in the metropolitan region Rhine-Neckar and the showcase project of German golf, especially due to its outstanding youth work.
The third part of the celebrations was a great party in the Business Club, in the loges and the legendary Adler Mannheim fan pub in the SAP Arena, rounding off the boisterous anniversary celebrations. The party went on all night, especially in the Adler fan pub, which was turned into a club with a DJ and a cocktail bar.
