PAL taps 4 courses

By MST Sports | Feb. 14, 2013 at 12:01am
The return of Philippine Airlines’ Interclub Golf Tournament to Cebu—Queen City of the South, will be a first, with the Senior and Regular Men’s tournaments using a total of four courses starting Feb. 21.

Seniors action, where the Canlubang Sugar Barons are defending champions, takes the lid off of this year’s playing with the 72-hole event set for staging at Alta Vista and Club Filipino courses.

Both courses are similar in character, with both carved out of mountains that offer unique challenges to the senior bidders of the event.

Alta Vista, the older of the two layouts, is considered the longer and tougher course, but Club Filipino also demands a lot of creativity from the field.

This year, the Interclub is being sponsored by 105.1 Crossover, Solar Sports, Plantation Bay Resort and Spa, 92.3 FM Radyo 5, Araneta Coliseum and AXN, while the major sponsors are Airbus, Manila Broadcasting Corporation, Philippine Broadcasting Network, People Asia, Radio Mindanao Network, Business Mirror and ABS-CBN The Filipino Channel.

Corporate sponsors include Radisson Blu Hotel, Shangri-La Resort and Spa, Boeing, Inquirer Golf Magazine, Philippines Graphic and Manila Bulletin.

The Sugar Barons, who came charging back from several double-digit deficits to nip Luisita at Apo and Rancho Palos Verdes in Davao last year, will definitely find Alta Vista a tough nut to crack with its bending fairways and greens that are either elevated or have huge drops.

Club Filipino also has a lot of blind holes, but is a younger course compared to Alta Vista, hence, it features thinner, shorter and smaller trees where playing out of errant drives could be easier.
