More than $3.5K up for grabs at Saipan Chamber golf tourney


The Saipan Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament is looking to bring some fun to the golf course with a two-person scramble format.
Men and women of different skill levels and talents all have a chance at some amazing cash prizes—first place, $800; second place, $500; and third place, $300—for each of the two categories: Team Gross and Team Double Peoria.
There will also be cash prizes for closest-to-the-pin, longest drive, and accurate drive contests.
In addition to these prizes, golfers will enjoy complimentary swag bags courtesy of chamber members as well as on-course snacks and refreshments.

The tournament is slated for April 14, 2018. Showtime is at 6am, with a shotgun start at 7am. The registration fee is $130 per person. Chamber members will enjoy a discounted fee of $120 per member. A banquet and raffle will immediately follow the close of the tournament.

The funds raised by the tournament and raffle will support the chamber’s scholarship program, monthly training seminars, and other community based projects. Among the activities offered in 2017 were:

• Chamber scholarships:
• $8,000 scholarships to high school seniors,
• $2,000 scholarship to an Northern Marianas College student
• $2,000 scholarship to a vocational education student.
• Annual Career Exploration Day: More than 80 public and private high school students experienced working in the private sector for a day.
• Veteran Cemetery improvements
Saipan Young Professionals 2017 Toys 4 Tots Program: Over $2,000 and 2,000 toys collected for less fortunate children
• And more…

Raffle prizes have been donated and tickets will be available for purchase during the awards banquet at the end of the tournament.

Sponsorships and raffle prizes are currently being collected and we expect this will be the most exciting year yet.

Registration forms for players are available for download at, at the chamber office, and at Laolao Bay Golf Resort.
