2 Words. Just Wow
These ladies really know how to put on a great show.
Last September 29, Immaculate Conception Academy (ICA) high school Batch ’94, in cooperation with the Manila Southwoods Golf & Country Club (MSGC) Ladies Chapter, pulled off arguably the most impressive local tournament of the year with the 19th Master’s Challenge.
Held at the famed Masters course of Manila Southwoods, the tournament was more than just a regular round of 18 holes as it provided the participants with a very enjoyable golfing experience.
Upon registering and heading to their respective lockers, participants were greeted by a personalized welcome card on their lockers which summarized all the treats they were going to get for the day.
The inside of the lockers resembled a fancy hotel’s mini-bar with a host of snacks, personal effects, and other cool items from the tournament’s generous sponsors.
Out on the fairways, golfers were never given a chance to go hungry with the Kenny Rogers chicken stop and merienda buffet tents that were strategically set up throughout the course.
Dehydration wasn’t a problem either with the Seattle’s Best coffee station and roving “beverage cart” (which served ice-cold sports drinks, juices, water and beer) making sure everyone’s thirst was quenched.
There was more eating and drinking after golf during the formal program as golfers enjoyed the roast beef buffet, pasta bar, and ice cream station while hearing each of their names called out for exciting raffle prizes.
And while everyone already felt like big winners with the numerous treats, there was still that select few golfers who managed to not only play through the thrill of all the abundance being showered around, but played well enough to actually win their respective divisions (yes, it was a tournament after all).
