A total of 155 teams, including entries from the United States, Middle East and Australia, have so far registered for the 67th Philippine Airlines (PAL) Interclub to be hosted next year by Negros Occidental Golf and Country Club and Bacolod Golf and Country Club.
The number of participating teams is expected to increase further as expressed during the PAL Interclub’s 1st team captain’s meeting held Nov. 15 at the Negros Occidental golf course in Marapara, Bacolod City.
Defending champion Cebu Country Club, led by team captain Jeric Hechanova, will no longer have the advantage of home course familiarity when Alabang and Del Monte try to derail Cebu’s attempt for a three-peat victory.
Meanwhile, the Sugar Barons from Canlubang will be aiming for their eighth overall crown in the Seniors.
The 28th edition of the Seniors will played from Feb. 20 to 23 while the 67th Men’s Regular on Feb. 26 to March 1 at the two golf courses in Bacolod City.
The PAL Interclub is acknowledged as the country’s longest-running and biggest amateur team golf championships.
