There is a strong connection between design professionals and golf. Maybe because of the mathematical precision required with every swing, or the intricate process behind the design of a golf course. While it cannot be determined for sure, this bond not only allows these creative individuals to unwind, but the sport also serves to create lasting and meaningful relationships with other people in the industry.

Wilcon Depot understands the importance of recreation and relationships. Apart from offering great options for building and designing materials, the company knows how to establish good ties while having fun. The 5th Wilcon Cup, an Annual Invitation Golf Tournament held at the Tagaytay Highlands Midlands Golf Club brought together design luminaries, building experts, and society figures. The ceremonial tee off was headed by Thailand ambassador to the Philippines, Vasin Ruangprateepsaeng. Some of the those who attended were father and son Mike and Paul Peña, Romulo Reyes, Adonis Baluyot, Titan Paints ambassador Richard Yap, and UAP national president Benjamin Panganiban, Jr. The charity event listed two beneficiaries this year: Wilcon Foundation that sends deserving underprivileged youth to school, and Crocodylus Porrosus Philippines, Inc. (CPPI) that protects the welfare of Philippine crocodiles.

Also present during the event were Wilcon founder and chairman emeritus William Belo, Wilcon executive vice-president and chief finance officer Mark Andrew Belo, and Wilcon Foundation president Rosemarie Ong. Johnny Litton served as the master of ceremonies.

The champions for the day were Chris Tiu for Class A, Roland Banzon for Class B, and Ricardo Gutierrez for Class C. The runners-up were Cordell Guanco, Michael Tomeldan, and Crimson Igbiten, respectively. Edgar Lee emerged as the Low Net Champion.
