The Saipan Chamber of Commerce and golfers will enjoy the fresh outdoors with the staging of the 2020 Two-Man Scramble Scholarship Golf Tournament on Aug. 8 on the west course of the Laolao Bay Golf & Resort.

The SCC Scholarship Tournament was initially scheduled last April, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the community maintains Vulnerability Level at “blue”, the SCC decided to move the tournament in August to raise money for scholarships for high school, college, and vocational students.

Registration forms are available for download at, Laolao Bay Golf & Resort (front desk) and the SCC office located at the Marianas Business Plaza, 3rd Floor, Suite 315. Golfers are encouraged to submit their forms and fees before Aug. 3 at the SCC office where registrants can easily pay for registration, raffle tickets, and optional play contests to ease their check-in and help promote social distancing measures.

SCC has implemented COVID-19 procedures to ensure the safety of golfers, which includes issuing pre-tournament registrations packets to alleviate crowding the morning of the tournament, as well as allowing only one golfer per cart. Full COVID-19 procedures can be found in the registration form.

Men and women of different skill levels will have a chance at amazing cash prizes: $800 for first $650 for second, and $500 for third places in each of the two categories—Team Gross and Team Double Peoria. There will be additional optional play contests for closest to the pin (four holes) and aggressive drive with winners taking home $150 cash prizes each. Golfers will also enjoy complimentary swag bags courtesy of SCC members, on-course snacks and refreshments, and post-tournament refreshments.

Show time is at 6am and shotgun start is set at 7am. The registration fee for general public is $120/per person ($140 after Aug. 3). Chamber members and their scramble partners will enjoy a discounted rate of $110/member ($120 after Aug.3). Tickets for amazing raffle prizes are available for purchase during registration and throughout the tournament. Save time and money when you sign up before Aug. 3 with an additional $10 off for the optional play contest.
