The latest news from Northern Marianas College

Joeten Motors has announced that it is offering a brand new 2020 Kia Soul as a hole-in-one prize in the upcoming 16th Annual NMC Foundation Golf Tournament. The Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, March 20, 2021, at the LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort.

Originally scheduled to happen in 2019, the tournament was canceled because of the impact of Super Typhoon Yutu and was rescheduled for March of 2020. However, the Covid-19 pandemic caused the tournament to be postponed again.

“The NMC Foundation Golf Tournament continues to raise funds that benefit students and their efforts to grow professionally,” said Matthew Deets, General Manager of Joeten Motors. “We are proud to be part of this year’s tournament again with our company’s hole-in-one prize contribution.”

“Joeten Motors has consistently been a part of the success of the NMC Foundation Golf Tournament, and we are glad the company is joining us this year as a major sponsor again,” said NMC Interim President Frankie Eliptico. “Joeten Motors’ hole-in-one donation raises the excitement and anticipation of the tournament. We are grateful for their support.”

The NMC Foundation 16th annual open golf tournament will be held on the East Course of the Saipan LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort. Showtime is at 6:00 a.m., and the shotgun start will be at 7:00 a.m. The tournament will follow a medal play format.

First place winners in the men’s Championship, A, B, C, Senior, and Ladies Flights will each receive $500, while $300 and $200 will go to the second and third place finishers, respectively. Hole-in-one prizes also include two $5,000 hole-in-one prizes from McDonald’s and Pacifica Insurance, as well as a 2020 Mazda 3 from Triple J Motors. The tournament will also feature many other items such as raffle prizes like smartphones, hotel stays, meals, and much more.

The maximum number of golf players has been reached, therefore, registration is closed for this year’s tournament.
