Golf tournament of Dualtech Partners for Dualtech Scholars
There was an overcast. Tropical depression Ineng just exited the country. What would have been a hot and humid day turned out to be a perfect day for a round of golf. Last August 30, the Dualtech Partners Cup was played at the Canlubang Golf and Country Club, South Course.
The South Course is known for its gentle course. It has wider fairways and even holes to play with. Additionally, it has magnificent views from natural sights like Laguna de Bay Tagaytay ridge, and the peaks of Mt. Makiling. This is a course where you need to stop frequently, look around you and appreciate the beauty of your surroundings.
Golfers among Dualtech Partners, friends, associates and benefactors pitted skills beating the 6,785 yard, Par 72 South course for trophies under 8 categories – Class A, B, C, Ladies, Most Accurate Drive, Nearest to the Pin Hole, Longest Drive and Overall Champion.
The event was an initial foray to gather Dualtech Partners to a different setting where one can meet other partners, share experiences and have fun. It also served as a fund-raiser, proceeds of which will help sustain Dualtech’s scholarship fund.
In store for winners was a unique trophy: the C-clamp, hand-made by Dualtech scholars. For sixty hours the students sawed, filed and bored a solid steel block into a C-clamp. Giving up the C-clamp as prizes was one way for the scholars to say thank you for the support.
Overall Champion was Paolo Sillona. Class A Champion was Lito Payao. Class B winner was Ronald Matanguihan. Class C trophy was awarded to Gary Plum. The Ladies’ Champion was Kristine Sison.
Incentive prizes were given to players with most accurate drive, nearest to the pin hole and longest drive. These prizes went to: Lito Payad, Rowen Bayot and Albert Mismanos respectively.
Sponsors were Power Systems, Palmer Asia, Ben Siy, Calamba Water District, and Yamaha.
