Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc. will launch next month the inaugural Phoenix Premium 98 Amateur Open series, with the aim of developing the country’s amateur golf talents as a long-term sports program.
The three-leg golf series, under Phoenix Philippines Foundation, seeks to discover raw talents with full potential especially on the men’s side, by providing the proper platform to pit their skills in a friendly and competitive nature.
To elevate the level of competition, the tournament will have an Open Division for participants with very low handicap indices, ensuring top-notch competition in all legs.
“We want to do our part in helping Philippine Golf,” said Phoenix Vice President for External Affairs Atty. Raymond Zorrilla. “The sport’s growth, local and regional, has been immense and Phoenix wants to encourage the kids to participate.”
Zorrilla also said Phoenix has been supporting other sports disciplines quietly and its first deep foray into amateur golf will commence with the opening two legs at Cebu Country Club on August 14 and Manila Southwoods on September 18.
The series will culminate on October 16 at Beverly Place, which opened its second nine holes early this year, on October 16, when the winners will be feted in a grand awards ceremony where fabulous prizes will also be given away.
Outstanding amateurs to come out of the series could be given special priority. “The Phoenix Philippines Foundation is ready to help if he or she is good to be in the national team,” Zorrilla said.
