When people hear about “golf” not many immediately develop an interest in it. Most are intimidated and feel like it’s only a sport for the rich or elite. The Golden Friendship Cup aims to change that mindset. Through this event, many will find golf to be an interesting sport that is fun to do and will enable them to meet fellow players and test their skills in the sport.
This golf tournament is set to take place on November 13-17, 2019 at the Pueblo de Oro Golf & Country Club in Cagayan de Oro City.
It is organized by Chris Coffee Cuisine, the City Government of Cagayan de Oro, City Tourism, Regional Tourism – 10, Pueblo de Oro Golf and Country Club, Pueblo de Oro Development Corporation, Great Depot Inc., JT International and Rotary Club of Kalayaan Cagayan de Oro, in cooperation with Lions International.
According to Ms. Jennifer Chua (Chairman and Event Organizer), the Golden Friendship Cup does not offer only just golf but it also aims to help promote Cagayan de Oro tourism as a whole and boost its economy through the event. This is because it helps several businesses and industries with an influx of plenty of tourists and people from other places. Many businesses will surely benefit from it.
Aside from that, all the participants will not only be pampered, they will also enjoy the camaraderie with other players, meet new people, be entertained with live music, win exciting prizes and get the chance to play with popular celebrity golfers.
There will also be International players coming so this is surely an exciting golf tournament nobody should miss!
Some of the celebrity players coming are Richard Gomez, Lucy Torres, John Estrada and wife, Chad Borja and others. The organizers are expecting 300 or more players from all over the Philippines to participate in the event.
They wish to make this a yearly event and call it a “golfer’s day” where they can have a one of a kind experience feeling the warmth and hospitality of Kagay-anons.
The competition will be held in Pueblo de Oro Golf & Country Club in Cagayan de Oro City, Province of Misamis Oriental. A first-class city, also known for its monicker, the city of Golden Friendship not only offers river rafting and dragon boat for tourism but also boasts its popular golf courses such as the Pueblo de Oro Golf and Country Club.
This 18-hole golf course has wide winding fairways that fan out from the clubhouse and is also a weatherproof course that is bordered and lined by deep ravines. Pueblo de Oro Golf and Country Club is divided into two nine-hole golf courses. The par-72 course is divided by a large bisecting deep ravine.
Players must watch out for the strategically placed yawning sand bunkers. They must also watch out for the love grass that adds to the variety of challenges in this course. Players will surely enjoy the beauty and challenge offered by this 6,974-yard championship golf course.
