Frequent flyers are trooping to The Orchard Golf and Country Club in Dasmarinas, Cavite, on November 8 in search of exciting prizes and bragging rights during the 24th edition of the Philippine Airlines (PAL) Mabuhay Miles Elite Invitational Golf tournament.
Golfers who are either Elite, Premium Elite or Million Miler members of PAL’s Mabuhay Miles will be challenging last year’s winners – Simon Carino, David Cheu Ka Wah, Jenz Vincent, Cebuano Michael Go, Orlando de Leon, Tranquilino Magpantay, Ma. Cristina Lava and Rudy Fulo – at The Orchard’s two 18-hole championship courses designed by Arnold Palmer (Legacy) and Gary Player (Tradition).
The Orchards takes pride at the special Tifton 419 grass that line up the fairways as well as the fine variety of Tifdwarf grass used on the greens for that ideal “bite”. The two courses are also dotted with lakes, lagoons, hills, scenic fairways, roughs and sand traps
Players are divided into four divisions according to their handicap. The Ladies and seniors will have their own division. All six divisions split play at the two courses.
Special prizes go to golfers with: nearest to the pin, longest drive, most number of birdies and most number of pars.
