Number coding suspended for 68th Fil-Am golf tournament

 Mayor Mauricio Domogan last week issued the administrative order suspending the traffic number coding scheme on November 27 to December 2017 for attendees of the 68th Fil-Am Invitational Golf Tournament.

Anchored on section 6 of Ordinance 2003, amended by ordinance 107, series of 2008; the number coding could be suspended for visitors, tourists, vacationers or participants of conventions, conferences and assemblies with the issuance of stickers for private car owner/participants.

Golfers and their families, thus could enjoy the city’s cool weather and conveniently tour around scenic tourist spots, the AO states. They are required to show identification cards issued by the organizers for number coding exemption, the AO further states.  

The longest running amateur golf competition since the 1940s hosted by the city features 1,200 active participants from around the globe. This year’s series is from Nov. 28 to Dec. 16 at the CAP John Hay Trade and Cultural Center, JH fairways, and at the Baguio Country Club. -juliegfianza
