Riding on the crest of its successful restart in a pandemic-hit year, the Pilipinas Golf Tournaments Inc. (PGTI) penciled a two-stage tournament for the Philippine Golf Tour and the Ladies PGT next month to usher in its 2021 season with premium still on the safety and health of the players and all the personnel involved. The Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club in General Trias, Cavite, the country’s largest golfing facility with four championship courses, will host the March 9-12 leg dubbed the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Challenge, and the March 23-26 stop, which it named the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Championship.
The Aoki and Norman layouts are being groomed to championship shape for those events.
Like the two tournaments at Riviera it held in a bubble environment last year, the PGT is making sure that strict health protocols are followed for the duration of the twin events, which takes place after a three-month break.
“As much as we wanted to provide opportunities for our pros, we have to ensure that it will be safe and responsible to resume our tour,” said Colo Ventosa, general manager of the organizing PGTI.
Tony Lascuna and Ira Alido won the first two legs of the PGT restart at Riviera while Princess Superal and Pauline del Rosario triumphed in the ladies legs.
