    THE Southwoods Invitational braces for a projected field of 325 teams composed of 650 players set to slug it out for top division honors in Manila Southwoods’ flagship tournament slated March 29-April 1 at its Masters and Legends courses in Carmona, Cavite.

    Junjun Plana and Gab Macalaguim captured the overall gross crown while Richard Santos and Michael Miguel snared the overall net honors via tiebreak in last year’s edition of the club’s premier member-guest tournament, which drew 200 teams.

    But organizers are looking to lure 100 more squads for this year’s staging of the 36-hole tournament spread over four days with Batch 1 to see action on March 29 and 31 and the next on March 30 and April 1.

    Due to the increased number of participants and to balance the number of players playing on tournament days, play will be sequential tee times on both courses on Wednesday (March 29) and Friday (March 31) at 6:20 a.m. and a shotgun start on Thursday (March 30) and Saturday (April 1) at 7:30 a.m. at the Legends, and 8 a.m. at the Masters; Aggregate format at the Legends and Best Ball format at the Masters under the Stableford Points scoring system with applied course handicaps.



      The club has closed the registration as early as last March 15 as entries kept on coming despite reaching the teams quota. Players will receive two practice rounds on weekdays, a golf bag and a tour cap. For more information, contact Manila Southwoods at (046) 419-8190 and (02) 8779-5590.
