The Women Get Preferred Lies.....

Over a hundred of the best women golfers of the Philippines have gathered to compete in the 19th LUZVIMIN (Luzon Visayas Mindano) Invitational Tournament  at the Negros Occidental Golf & Country Club  (Marapara) in Bacolod City. Twenty teams from all over the country from Luzon to Mindanao have braved the rains caused by typhoon Mina. Sponsored by the Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines, the Luzvimin Invitational is one of the most awaited competitive tournaments for amateur lady golfers.  Because of the bad weather conditions the women braved the blustering storm to take on Marapara in “preferred lies”. This made the already difficult playing conditions of the Negros Occidental Golf and Country Club even more challenging. Strong winds, rain and MUDDY fairways was normal play throughout the three day championship. 

Mud all over!
Despite this, the tournament went on. It was afterall in the spirit of goodwill and good golf for everyone.
