CCC joins Phil. Amateur Golf-A A +A
Thursday, January 3, 2013
THE Cebu Country Club (CCC) will be joining the 2013 Philippine Amateur Golf Championship on Jan. 7-10 at the Wack-Wack Golf and Country Club.
The players making up team CCC are Bayani Garcia, Jovi Neri, LJ Go, Gen Nagai, Mark Dy and two other PAL Golf tournament team members, Andre Borromeo and JJ Alvarez.
“We are playing in the Philippine Amateur Golf as a tune-up for the PAL Golf tournament next month,” said CCC team member Jovi Neri.
Cebu last hosted the PAL Golf Tournament in 2002 and it will be making a return to Cebu this year, with CCC men's regular team trying to defend their title in the championship division. Aside from the title defense, there is added pressure for CCC especially since the tournament will be played in their own turf—at the CCC and at the Mactan Island Golf and Country Club.
The seniors division will be played at the Alta Vista Golf and Country Club and at the Club Filipino Inc. De Cebu in Danao City, Cebu.
“We will try to defend our title in PAL and we are preparing against two strong contenders—the Del Monte Golf and Country Club and the Alabang Golf and Country Club,” said Garcia.
Garcia added that although they don’t know the roster of players, they will be preparing for it because they believe that the two teams will be fielding strong players.
