Subic Investors Unite For Tourism

In an effort to push the current status of this premier Freeport’s tourism, hotel and tourism companies here unite to come up with the “Stay in a Hotel in Subic, Play a round of golf for free!”

Subic Leisure World Inc. President and CEO Benjamin John Defensor III said all tourists who stay at their accredited hotels can play a free round of golf at the Subic Golf Course.

“It’s a simple, yet effective way, of enticing tourist golfers to take their families in Subic Bay Freeport and enjoy the many tourism sites here. It would also give those golfers a chance to try out the new golf course,” Defensor added.

Accredited hotels that give out free round of golf are Venezia Hotel, White Rock Waterpark, Subic Homes Apartelle, Mango Valley, The Terrace Hotel, Bayfront Hotel, Seorabeol, and Playa Papagayo Beach Inn.

Subic Bay Freeport was hounded by controversies such as the alleged “toxic waste” dumping that has lessened the usual number of incoming tourists during peak season.

“We believe that investors such as we, can help in increasing the current number of tourists coming to Subic by creating a package not just for ordinary tourists but golf enthusiasts as well,” Defensor said.

The golf course formally reopened on January 1st upon the completion of the renovation of their fully functional nine holes and is currently in the process of completing up to the 18th hole. (Jonas Reyes, Manila Bulletin)
