Maroon Cup: Wrapping Up

Maroon Cup: Wrapping Up

Just as in any other tournament, the UP Golf’s Maroon Cup commenced as scheduled on Monday, April 16, despite undergoing a seemingly uphill battle and being surrounded by external factors. How many would be actually playing? What was the weather going to be? Could there be a shortage of supplies? In that sense, a tournament and its turnabouts mirror a common quality with the game of golf – unpredictability.

Nevertheless, unpredictability is a tool that can measure one’s capacity to adapt, maneuver, and rise to the challenge. Therefore, we, the UP Golf Team, can proudly say two things: that the tournament did not give in to any of these factors, and that we have successfully completed another chapter in our book of tradition.

Once more, we would like to congratulate the winners and record-holders of the tournament in the various categories:

We hope you enjoyed not only the tournament, but as well as the accompanying raffle prizes to take home. Without your presence, the Maroon Cup could not have been as eventful and memorable. We hope to see you in another team event in the future!
