Wood-Mizer owners' golf tournament in Latvia

Wood-Mizer owners' golf tournament in Latvia For the fourth time Wood-Mizer owners visited Riga to play golf. This Wood-Mizer golf tournament is the brainchild of Vilmars Jansons, Wood-Mizer's Latvian representative.

"The first tournament was in 2006. Many guests held a golf club for the first time but a year later many have become surprisingly competent", explainsVilmar

Last year the tournament did not take place. Latvian sawyers endured serious problems during the recession, some noticing bouts of no trade at all. It was a situation in which businessmen were too unsettled to play.

"This year, we begin to see signs of a market revival. We are receiving orders for spare parts, blades and requests for commercial offers on new equipment. And many clients asked: when are we playing golf again?"

Thus, a tournament displayed its endurance and appeared a fourth time in a golf club at Saliena, near Riga. 37 golfers from 20 companies played.
