Volvo National Alumni Cup Hails 2nd Season Champs

Bigger, better and certainly more impressive, the second round of the Volvo Alumni Golf Cup once again gave its participants a chance to grip it and rip it at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club. Only on its second year, the golf tourney already attracted 18 teams from a dozen schools from last year’s nine. Alumni from prestigious educational institutions here and abroad got their healthy dose of iron as they engaged in a friendly yet very competitive match. The 18-hole Stroke-Play competition also witnessed the prowess of the golfers in the Volvo Perfect Drive Holes where the Most Accurate Drive, Longest Drive and Nearest to the Pin holes were also recognized.

Pampered as they already were with Volvo Official merchandise from head to toe – golf umbrella, caps, face towel, moisture wicking shirts, weekend bags, and even driving shoes for each participant – the overall winning team also gets to enjoy an Asian golf holiday.  More importantly, the sportsmanship and camaraderie amongst players were palpable even as they ribbed and teased each other on the course and off. Obviously, pride swelled as each team and individual players were called.

Standard Insurance sponsored the Hole-in-One, which promised an All-New Volvo V40, for the second year in a row. About a hundred raffle prizes were also given away such as items and treats from Resorts World Manila, The Lighthouse Marina Resort, Mobil, Mizuno, Siete Barakos, History | AE Network, Smart Inifinity, Goldrich Car Accessories, Incorporated and Primer Group of Companies. Volvo Weekend Drive Gift Certificates were also given away. The All-New Volvo XC90 was also prominently displayed at the fairway with the Volvo V40 and another XC90 displayed by the Clubhouse. Clients and guests also enjoyed the efficient Volvo Valet Service.

For more than two decades, Volvo has been an ever-growing and powerful presence in the world of golf. Its active participation in this field has earned the respect of the golfing community and has provided a common ground between Volvo and its valued customers. Aligned with this, Volvo Philippines strengthens its relationship with both its current and potential customers through a round of golf.
