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.

In its last scholarship program, the SCC awarded 17 students from the Northern Marianas College and the Northern Marianas Technical Institute.

“This year, our focus extends beyond community college and trade education to include support for higher education in maritime trade,” the SCC statement said.

Golfers of all skill levels will have the chance to compete for incredible cash prizes. The Team Gross and Team Double Peoria categories offer prizes of $800 for 1st place, $650 for 2nd place, and $500 for 3rd place. Optional Play Contests provide additional opportunities to win $150 in cash prizes per contest. Golfers will also receive complimentary swag bags courtesy of our Chamber members, as well as on-course snacks and refreshments. After the tournament, participants can enjoy post-tournament refreshments and celebrate their accomplishments.
