The shared roots and strong ties between the University of Malaya (UM) and NUS are once again evident at the 50th UM-NUS Inter-University Tunku Chancellor Golf Tournament held from 18 to 19 September 2018. 55 NUS golfers and 58 UM golfers met in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and after two days of golf, Team UM emerged the winner of this year’s game. The score was UM 11.5 to NUS 8.5, a very close game. Both universities were honoured to have Her Excellency Halimah Yacob (Law ’78), President of the Republic of Singapore and NUS Chancellor; and His Royal Highness Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah, UM Chancellor, gracing the event. Among those who attended the event were NUS Pro-Chancellors Mr Po’ad Mattar (Accountancy ’71) and Dr Chan Sek Keong (Law ’61), NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye (Science ’85), and UM Vice-Chancellor Datuk Insinyur (Dr) Abdul Rahim Hashim.
NUS Alumni Relations would like to express our appreciation to NUS Golf Captain Mr K C Lim, who will be stepping down after eight years at the helm.
