This annual super tournament involves senior players and men's regular golfers from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Saudi Arabia and host the Philippines. “Once again our tournament has lured a big number of golfers from around the world,” declared PAL president Jaime J. Bautista. “And this early we wish all our guests good luck.” Here's some exciting news from Jay Aranas, spokesperson for the Pinoy Golf Club Auckland: “Yes, for the first time we will be participating in the longest running amateur golf tournament. This is possible because PAL is now flying to New Zealand. “All the best to Archie Milo, Ed Magadia, Edwin Caballero, Elier Tingzon, Gerry Quijano, Jude Daculan, Lito Magadia, Fr. Mar Dorado and Ton Garrido.” The battlefields are the famous Rancho Palos Verdes Golf Club and the Apo Golf Club - which some consider to be two of the finest championship courses in the world.
