As part of its commitment to advancing higher education in the CNMI, the LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort is donating one year of free golf rounds to the lucky golfer who makes a hole-in-one at Hole No. 7 at the LaoLao's West Course in this Saturday's NMC Foundation Open Golf Tournament.
“We understand how much NMC contributes to the community by providing opportunities for higher education and professional development,” said LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort senior vice president/general manager Tetsuya Matsunaga. “We are glad to be a part of the NMC Foundation's efforts to support the CNMI's only U.S.-accredited institution of higher learning.”
The NMC Foundation is composed of community volunteers committed to improving and enhancing higher education opportunities for people in the CNMI. The annual tournament is the Foundation's signature event.
“With this being our tenth tournament, we are extremely grateful for LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort's continued support and generosity over the years,” said NMC Foundation president Ivan Quichocho.
The 10th Annual NMC Foundation Open golf tournament will be held at the LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort (West Course) with a shotgun start at 7am and will follow a medal play format. There will be six separate flight categories: Championship, A, B, C, Seniors, and Ladies.
Registration forms for the golf tournament can be downloaded from www.nmcnet.edu, or picked up at LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort, Marianas Country Club, Saipan Country Club, Dan Dan Golf Range, Kingfisher Golf Links, and All Star Sporting Goods.
The entrance fee is $95 per player. Payments for the entrance fee can be made at LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort, Triple J Motors, and the NMC Cashier.
Tournament prizes for first place for each of the six flights include cash and roundtrip tickets to various destinations in the Pacific on United Airlines. Other hole-in-one prizes include a 2012 Hyundai Elantra donated by Triple J Motors, and a roundtrip ticket on United Airlines.
