BRAFE GOLF set to tee off at Forest Hills

By Adrian Flores

Golfing for Education goes back into full swing after being sidelined by more than two years due to pandemic as its core group—with La Sallians in the lead—decided to bring back the much-awaited BRAFE GOLF.

Now in its 15th year, BRAFE GOLF is set to tee off on October 3 at the Forest Hills Golf Club in Antipolo.

The core group is composed of chairman JR Hernandez, Ting Yupangco, George Elazegui, Bong Africa, Roy Peña, Randy Nonato and BRAFE GOLF founder Albert MG Garcia, owner of the Megafiber brand.

Around 200 players are expected to have an enjoyable round at Forest Hills’ signature Nicklaus course, designed by golf great Jack Nicklaus, and help BRAFE GOLF’S fund drive for the benefit of the Foundation for Sharing LaSallian Education (FSLE).

A lot of spectacular prizes await the participants of the one-day tournament, which also includes raffling off items for sponsors and honors for the first time in BRAFE GOLF’s history.

To date, BRAFE GOLF has already guided more than a thousand students to more successful lives, an advocacy that has stood the test of time since this initiative was started in 2006. The core group vows to continue this tradition of helping students for many, many years.

“BRAFE GOLF’s focus is to provide critical funding to continue supporting the scholarship program with the De La Salle University in Lipa, Batangas,” Garcia said.
