  • From my experience when playing in a new course you need all the help you can get, so it is crucial to get a good caddy who is familiar with the course layout, speed & breaks of the greens and who is almost a psychologist. Luckily, when I played in the Frankie Miñoza Cup I was given a very good caddy... Enan Jaraula. Enan is actually Angelo Que's caddy when he plays in Del Monte Golf Club for the Philippine Golf Tour. Enan was always spot-on the with his tips and he even helped me with the tempo of my swing! He kept positive hence I had one of my better games.

  • The Philippines' Premier Golfer Frankie Miñoza has set up his own foundation called the Frankie Minoza Golf Foundation.

Basically they want to produce the next Frankie Miñoza and show the world that the Filipino golfers are a force to reckon with.

Setting aside at least two hours with your choice of popcorn, nachos, gummy candy, healthy / not so healthy snacks and your favourite soda completes the experience.
