MANILA, Philippines — Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi yesterday issued a cease and desist order to the Alabang Country Club, ordering the posh club to immediately suspend its golf operations for violation of government’s quarantine protocols on safety and health last month.

Carla Maramara, general manager of the ACC, received the order signed by City Administrator Allan Cachuela in behalf of Fresnedi. The suspension came after the ACC allowed Club 515 to host the 14th PEMCOR Cup last Aug. 29 despite the quarantine restrictions.

It added that all golf activities at the ACC are suspended effective immediately until further notice.

Meanwhile, Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla issued a separate Executive Order, allowing Sherwood Hills Golf Club in Trece Martires, Cavite to resume operations after ordering its closure for the same violation last week. The club has taken all preventive measures as a result of the brief suspension.

“The management of SHGC undertook to implement preventive measures to avoid the recurrence of similar incidents and appealed for the reconsideration of the closure order, in consideration of their employees who depend on their employment of the golf club for their income.” according to EO No. 34 – Series 2020.

The lifting of SHGC closure takes effect today (Sept. 29).

Meanwhile, Carla Maramara, general manager of the ACC, received the order signed by City Administrator Allan Cachuela in behalf of Mayor Fresnedi. The ACC allowed Club 515 to host the 14th PEMCOR Cup last Aug. 29.

Attached with the cease and desist order was a directive from DILG Secretary Eduardo Año for Mayor Fresnedi to effect the suspension of golf course operations based on the Philippine National Police investigation.
