With a donation of gift certificates for its unique submarine tour, Pacific Subsea Saipan has joined a list of sponsors buoying up the 18th Annual HANMI Charity Classic Golf Tournament on May 11 at LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort’s west course.

“We began our partnership years ago with this tournament and always look forward to assisting,” said Pacific Subsea Saipan operation manager Scott Eck. “As Saipan’s only true submarine experience, we are hoping that whoever wins these gift certificates has an amazing time with us.”

A scratch golfer himself and former college player, Eck also “would like to wish everyone good luck this weekend.”

The tournament follows a black-jack double Peoria format and is offering more than $100,000 in cash, cars, hotel night stays and other prizes for players. Registration for the tournament has sold out.

“We thank Pacific Subsea Saipan for generously donating these incredible prizes for this weekend’s tournament,” said tournament chair Steve Balakrishna. “In fact, the HANMI tournament has a great lineup of course and banquet prizes for adventures of land, sea, and yes, even sky. We’re looking forward to a great day on and off the course on Saturday.”

Hole-in-one prizes include $20,000 from Century Tours, a 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross from Triple J Motors, $20,00 from LT Travel, a 2019 Toyota Sienna from Atkins Kroll Saipan, $5,000 from Pacifica Insurance, a first-class roundtrip ticket from Saipan to Shanghai or Guangzhou on Sichuan Airlines from Saipan Travel Inc., and $2,500 from Traders Insurance.

For an additional $30, players may also compete for optional play prizes, including Accurate Drive on Line (#9), Accurate Drive Circle (#5), Aggressive Drive (#12), Longest Drive (#18), and Nearest to the Pin (#3, #7, #13, #17). The tournament will start at 7am, and the awards banquet will be held the same day at 6pm at Grandvrio Resort Saipan.
