Sunday not a day-off for Micro Games golf hopefuls

Posted on Apr 21 2006

Golfers vying for slots in the 6th Micronesian Games will have another qualifying tournament tomorrow, April 23, at the Laolao Bay Golf Resort east course.

Qualifiers coordinator Jess Wabol said tee time is set at 12pm with check-in time scheduled an hour earlier at 11am.

The former Oleai Elementary School principal said the men will tee off from the blue tee, while women will continue to start from the red.

Entry fee is $30, $10 of which will be donated to the Games kitty bag, while green fee costs $35.

The rest of the April-May schedule for the qualifiers are April 30 at the Kingfisher Golf Links and May 20 at Coral Ocean Point Golf Resort. Wabol has also set May 21 as a make-up day for golfers who missed a round.

Wabol is expected to pick five golfers for the men’s team and same number for the women’s team a month or two before the start of the Games, which is set from June 23 to July 3 on Saipan.
