The Inaugural Hilo Golf Classic was hosted by Hilo Junior Golf in 1982. Today, the Classic is the only major fundraiser sponsored by the current junior golf program now known as Big Island Junior Golf Association. Proceeds from this tournament are used to subsidize the costs of its program events. Each year, help is sought to recruit family and friends to complete the entry form to secure a spot in the field of a maximum of 180 players. The format of the tournament has varied between two person and three person modified scramble based on 25% of the team members handicap and with staggered prizes.
We regret to share that our 38th Annual Hilo Golf Classic, initially planned to take place on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at the Hilo Municipal Golf Course, is currently postponed. Please know that this was a very difficult decision, that the Board of Directors did not reach easily. We want to make sure that we are able to provide the best experience we can for players and unfortunately turnout for this weekend was much lower than we expected. We are actively working to reschedule the tournament at a later date and provide the best tournament we can. Please stay tuned for more information to come.
Thank you to everyone who signed up to play. We will be mailing refund checks within the week to all who have submitted payments.
