A total of P2 million worth of prizes will be up for grabs in the Alta Vista Golf and Country Club’s (AVGCC) 15th Fun Golf Tournament this weekend at the AVGCC golf course in Pardo, Cebu City.
This year, the tournament, which is open to all members and their invited guests, adapts a new name—Fun Golf Tournament. This replaces the Christmas Fun Golf Classic to simplify the tournament’s name. It is also part of the club’s branding.
Around 280 participants are expected to see action in AVGCC’s second major annual event, which will be an individual strokeplay.
Titles up for grabs are overall lowest gross, overall lowest net, and top three for classes A, B and C and the guest division.
Champion and runner-up honors will be at stake in the super seniors, ladies and dependent categories.
Winners will go home with specially-crafted AVGCC plaques.
As its norm, AVGCC is making sure that participants will get twice the price of the P2,700 registration fee. Aside from a giveaway bag with rain cover worth about P3,000, the organizing committee is also making sure that all will be able to receive raffle prizes during the awards night on Sunday.
Amazing prizes also await hole-in-one scorers, which include P200,000 from AVGCC, P150,000 first bet coupons from Pagcor, a Haojue motorcycle from Norkis Trading, a Club Car golf cart from Pacsports, a trip to Singapore from Marist Royal Holidays Travel and Tours, a lot from Sta. Lucia Realty and Development Inc. and overnight stays from Marco Polo Plaza Hotel and Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu.
In accordance with the name of the tournament, organizers are also designating two holes as “fun holes,” wherein one of prizes at stake for an ace is P50,000.
A Skygo motorcycle will also be given to any participant who can score an eagle on any par-4 hole goal. Non-members will have to be invited by a club member to play. /CORRESPONDENT MARS G. ALISON
