ORGANIZERS of the 111th Baguio Charter fun golf tentatively moved the tournament to October 10 and 11 following the closure of all golf courses in the Summer Capital.

On Tuesday, September 22, Pinewoods Golf and Country Club, Baguio Country Club (BCC), and Camp John Hay Golf Club announced their voluntary closure after some of their staff tested positive for coronavirus.

Pinewoods Golf and Country Club closed its courses after one of its guests, who played over the weekend, tested positive, while BCC announced one of the club's caddies made close contact to a person who recently tested positive for the virus in their barangay.

"We assure everyone that contact tracing and proper health and safety protocols including disinfection and sanitation are already being implemented, as it is always our priority to protect our valued members, guests and employees," the BCC announcement stated.

Camp John Hay, meanwhile, said two of its caddies tested positive for coronavirus.

"Camp John Hay Golf Club will be closed until further notice to conduct contact tracing, continued disinfecting, and other appropriate activities," Camp John Hay announced through Viber.

Dubbed "Boost your morale Baguio," the two-day fun golf tournament scheduled September 26-27 is supposedly to be played at the Pinewoods and BCC with a tournament fee of P3,500.

Baguio Olympics, organizers of the two-day fun golf assured all tickets that were sold can still be used on the proposed dates.
