After the very successful staging of the 1stGreen Jacket Golf Tournament in 2017 by the De La Salle Santiago Zobel – Sports Development Office headed by Ace Gacutan at Tagaytay Midlands International Golf Club, the 2ndGreen Jacket Golf Tournament was late last year at the same venue.
The tournament was conceptualized by Ace Gacutan and DLSZ golf coach and Tagaytay Midlands Execute Rhoneil Cousart, to benefit the DLSZ Athletic Scholars with the proceeds of the tournament aimed at supporting the DLSZ athletes with their other expenses.
It was a very foggy ride to Tagaytay Midllands for the players in the very early morning of December 20 as registration opened promptly at 6:30 a.m. An hour later, the 80+ players teed off for a full day of golf.
Tagaytay Midlands offered the golfers the challenge they look for. The fairways were well maintained, while the greens were fast and unforgiving to the unseasoned players.
At the end of the day, everybody had fun. The raffle was endless. With the winners were very happy to bring home a very unique trophy.
The event was sponsored by Alveo, PowerMac Center, ACCRALAW, Smart, Kampfortis, Gatorade, SRIXON, Café de Lipa, Gatorade, JLM Hotel and Foods Inc., PSL, The Seashore Beach Club Inc., Nike, Asian Hospital and Medical Center, SureChoice, Loro, Printshop and AnimoMagazine.
Congratulations to the DLSZ Sports Development Office, Ace Gacutan and Rhoneil Cousart!
