The Games and Amusements Board recently lauded the staging of the first of two tournament­s marking the Philippine Golf Tour restart after an eight- month hiatus due to the global health crisis and endorsed the staging of more pro golf events in the coming year.

In a report to GAB chair Abraham Mitra, the Pro-Basketball and Other Pro-Games Division cited the organizing Pilipinas Golf Tournament­s, Inc. for its strict compliance with the DOH-PSC-GAB Joint Administra­tive Order with regard to the health and safety protocols during the ICTSI Riviera Invitation­al Challenge two weeks ago.

“With the successful conclusion of the pro golf tournament organized by PGTI under the GAB supervisio­n in compliance with the DOH-PSC-GAB JAO No. 2020-0001, it is noted that pro golf is back and more upcoming tournament­s be allowed,” said the GAB in its report.

The report also mentioned the smooth conduct of the bubble tournament from the designated hotel in BayleafCav­ite to the venue at Riviera’s Couples and Langer courses. RT-PCR tests were conducted for players and all personnel involved, including the GAB personnelo­n-duty.
