MANILA Southwoods defends its PAL Ladies’ Interclub title in September when Iloilo’s age-old Sta. Barbara layout hosts the second edition of the event’s revival, with organizers expecting an even bigger field compared to last year.
After being put on hold for more than two decades, the Ladies’ Interclub saw its rebirth last year at Rancho Palos Verdes in Davao, drawing 22 teams with the Carmona-based parbusters coming out on top.
Del Monte, starring the veteran Eva Minoza, placed second to Southwoods and that rivalry is expected to spill over this year.
“The response we had last year in terms of team participation was indeed encouraging. We expect more teams to sign up this year for this event will be a permanent fixture in the local golf calendar,” says PAL executive Dina May Flores, chairperson of the event.
Adopting the theme ‘Fairways and Magic’ this year, the tournament is now accepting entries from all over the world for the event set on Sept. 18-21.
Players need to represent a local club to apply for inclusion in the event, while foreign-based participants need to form a team of 6-8 players to be able to compete in the four-to-play, three-to-count format.
Senior men’s Interclub rules will apply for the duration of the event.
