The Apache Golf Tournament is ready to host anew as it marches on to its second decade as scores of players are expected to turn in at the Baguio Country Club golf course on April 1.

“On its 11th year, we intend to make it a notch better and stronger with more sponsors signing up for the event-for-a cause,” said Jonathan Vergara, chief of the city’s oldest civic organization.

Beneficiaries this year are indigent cancer and hemodialysis patients.

The event started in 2011 under then chief Art Bueno and has become an annual event disrupted only in 2020 and 2021 due to the lockdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It resumed last year with more than 100 participants joining.

Vergara, who was elected in November 2021 as the chief for 2023 and assumed command in the group’s annual bonfire on Dec. 30 last year said more is in store as awards, trophies and raffles await par busters joining the event.

The Baguio Water District and One Lending are presenters of the event which uses the System 36 for classification and the Molave scoring system. 

It is open in men’s A, B and C and ladies divisions with BCC members paying P1,200 to join and P2,500 for non-members. The ticket entitles players to a raffle and dinner.

Mulligan tickets will also be sold during competition day. – Press release
