Posted on May 26 2023

The Saipan Chamber of Commerce would like to inform the community of the new date for its highly anticipated 14th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament.

Due to the weather conditions associated with Typhoon Mawar and other logistical matters, the tournament has been postponed to June 17, 2023. The event will still take place at the beautiful LaoLao Bay Golf and Resort, west course, with showtime at 6am and shotgun at 7am.

The SCC two-person scramble annual golf tournament is an annual fundraising event that provides crucial financial support for the Saipan Chamber Scholarship Program, benefiting local students pursuing higher education and contributing to our community. It serves as a means to provide financial support to college and trade students who face financial shortfalls, enabling them to pursue their educational goals.
