Meanwhile, the 27th Kalayaan Cup Golf tournament which was normally held during the Queen’s birthday long week-end and to celebrate the Philippine Independence day was postponed due to the sub-standard conditions of the course venue. This is the biggest and well attended golf tournament in the Filipino-Australian golfing community in New South Wales. This has been organised by the Organising Committee of Kalayaan, Inc. currently headed by Cris Bacucang. “We apologise for the postponement of the Kalayaan Cup Golf tournament, but that is the only way in order for the participants to enjoy their golf while celebrating the Philippine Independence day with us” said an apologetic Cris Bacucang
