This year, Tamkang University will turn 61. One of the activities held to commemorate this significant milestone is a golf tournament for Tamkang faculty, staff, and alumni, known as the "TKU Anniversary Employee Cup".

The event kicked off with the help of Dr. Jyh-horng Lin, the Provost of the Lanyang Campus and Hsiao Shu-feng, the Dean of the Office of Physical Education. In total, it drew 61 participants, including faculty and staff (28), family members of faculty and staff (2), retired staff (6) and alumni (25). The President of Tamkang University, Dr. Flora Chia-I Chang, also made a guest appearance.

In the end, the title of overall gross champion went to alumni Tsai Hsin-li, while first, second, and third place net champion went to Kau Chin-mei (Department of Mathematics instructor), Li Chia-fu (alumnus), and Chen Shih-wen (alumnus) respectively.

After the tournament, a dinner banquet was held at which President Chang thanked all attendees for taking part and commended employees from the Office of Physical Education for their hard work in organizing the event. As part of its healthy campus initiative, Tamkang University actively promotes sport and fitness using the slogan “one sport for one person”. It has implemented employee sport classes, held once a week in a range of different sports; and in doing so, has become a pioneer among Taiwanese universities.

The day’s activities concluded with a group photo of all attendees.
