Golf: The 9th Pomelo Tee-A A +A
Friday, May 2, 2014
THE 9th Pomelo Tee of Rancho Palos Verdes is on its second day. It is a 4-day tournament and it will end on Sunday, May 4, 2014. As you know, it is a 36-hole team and individual competition. They are expecting 400 golfers to participate in this event.
I can just imagine how excited the players will be when they play the four par 3’s for two days. They have 8 chances to win the hole in one prizes which include—a brand new car from KarAsia, a Class A golf share from Rancho Palos Verdes, P750,000 cash prize, a brand new motorcycle from Emcor, and a vacation package from the Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship.
