Tournament Reviews

On behalf of the Mabuhay Golf Club, I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for the great service and experience we had during our recent golf tournament at Franklin Canyon. Your staff really knows what service is all about. Special mention goes to Eric and the Restaurant/Bar.

Having said that, I did not hesitate to request Eric to book another tournament for the club, not only for the year 2019 but 2020 as well.

I didn't go beyond because I really don't know if I can still play or not - not to mention if I am still alive. Nevertheless, I told him to book every year thereafter until I lay 6 feet under - haha.

I wish all other golf courses will do the same.

Once again, thank you very much and all the best to you and yours.
