Frankie Meñoza, the Philippines’ premier golfer, rose from a mere amateur to a successful world-class professional golfer mostly through his own efforts. Wishing to replicate his success, he decided to set up Frankie Meñoza Golf Foundation to enable exceptionally talented golfers from the Visayas-Mindanao region to compete in the bigger field.
The purpose of the foundation is to seek, identify and assist talented individuals from Visayas and Mindanao in the sport of golf and to provide them educational assistance, social skills and playing opportunities in the hope that they too, may have an opportunity to become world-class golfers.
The foundation would like to invite willing private entities and individuals to establish and sustain the Foundation.
