1st AUGT Tees Off to Success

Date Posted: Aug 2, 2009 at 02:47:55 AM

Alumni and benefactors of Adamson University came together to play an exciting round of golf at the first AdU Golf Tournament held last August 7, 2009 at the Wack-Wack Golf and Country Club. University President Fr. Gregg L. Bañaga Jr., C.M. did the ceremonial tee-off to start the tournament.


More than 80 golfers took part, with the men competing in three class divisions while a separate division was held for the lady golfers. In the Class A (76-91 gross) division, Ronnie Emata emerged as champion with gross of 90 with a handicap of 16.8. Lewis Wong came in as first runner-up with a net score of 73.6 while Deo Chan was declared second runner-up after posting a similar score but clocking in 38 on the last 9.


In the Class B division (92-99 gross), Mario Lim was declared champion with a net score of 73.2; Albert Tan was first runner up with 75 net score; and Ronald Mercado came in at second runner-up with the slightest difference at 75.2 net score.


Class C division (100-136 gross) saw Benito Chua Coking become champion with a gross of 104 and a net score of 75.2. First runner-up Benito Chua scored a net 76.8 while second runner-up Amel Amar posted 77.2.


Meanwhile, Eimee Hedeager was declared the women’s champion after posting a gross score of 90 and posting an impressive 13.2 handicap. Melanie Cruz came in at second place, posting a gross score of 101 and a handicap of 20.4.


Two other players were given citations for their own excellent results. Rey Aguilera posted the lowest net score of 73 while Art Ampaya posted the lowest gross score at 71.


Tournament winners were awarded trophies, University jackets, and gift certificates from tournament sponsors Astoria Hotel, Bioessence, and White Beauty. Other lucky golfers brought home prizes during the raffle game such as air conditioning unit, TV set, DVD player, HP printer, and books donated by former President Fidel Ramos.


The tournament, a fundraising event of the Office for Institutional Advancement, generated more than Php300,000 which will benefit the University’s scholarship, faculty development, and outreach programs. As such is the success of the tournament, a second tournament is already in the works, details of which will be announced soon. Yael Esperat
