St. John’s School hosted its annual golf tournament last Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the Onward Mangilao Golf Club with all proceeds to benefit the St. John’s School Knights for Knights Scholarship Program, aiding local students in need who wish to attend the school.
Over 40 teams took part in St. John’s largest fundraising event of the year, where participants enjoyed camaraderie among other golfers and reveled in the picturesque 18-hole golf course Onward Mangilao Golf Club highlights.
Throughout the course, participants also had the chance to win prizes from various contests, including Hole-In-One, Closest to the Pin, and Longest Drive. A 2019 Buick Encore, $7,600 in fuel and $5,000 cash were up for grabs for the Hole-in-One challenge. Each player also brought home a St. John’s ditty bag with assorted goods and a complimentary photograph of their group and swing as a keepsake.
The players unwound and had the chance to win great raffle prizes at the award banquet dinner after the exciting round of golf. Unique, sushi-designed trophies were awarded to the top 3 team low net winners and top 3 low gross score winners.
This year’s first place winners for the low net were Danny Zheng and Lloyd Hartman, followed by father-daughter team, Roberto and Camille Manalo in second. Father-son team, Dr. Reynald and Gerard Lim finished in third place.
The low gross first place winners were Masaki Ujiie and Ryan Lee, followed again by Roberto and Camille Manalo in second. Third place winners were father-son duo, Mas and Jacob Ujiie.
Longest Drive winners include Masaki Ujiie for the men’s division, Anushka Basu for the women’s division and Danny Zheng for the Under 12 division. John Tuquero and Edwin Fenton won the two Closest-to-Pin challenges.
St. John’s School would like to thank our many sponsors, supporters, volunteers and other numerous donors for making this year’s tournament a huge success.
