BIJGA Club Play

Club Play is an opportunity for the beginner and intermediate junior golfer to learn the game of golf as it is played on the golf course, in a organized format with other juniors. Open to our advanced players as well, our Club Play will give them a chance to sharpen their game skills and practice at various golf courses on the island.

Junior golfers are encouraged to participate!  BIJGA membership must be current.  Children age groups: 6 & under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-18.

Aloha Everybody,

We are moving ahead with our 2023 Big Island Junior Golf Club Plays.   We are happy to announce our next club play on Sunday, September 24th,  at the Makani Golf Club. 

All players will play stroke play, and begin at the First tee box, starting at 10:00 am, beginning with Boys Ages 15-18.

In order to participate all players must be current BIJGA 2023 members.  Use of this year's BIJGA golf shirt (orange ) will be considered proper golf attire for this, and all upcoming events this year.  If your junior does not yet have a shirt, or if you are interested in purchasing additional shirts please email Malcolm Helm at

Pairings, tee times and volunteer assignments will be posted by email.  Please do not contact the clubhouse for tee times.  The registration table will open at 10:00 am.  Please account for your own snacks, lunch, and special beverages.  Walking spectators will not be allowed at this Club Play.  Range balls are free, complements of the staff.  This field is limited to the first 40 registered members so register soon.  Anyone registering after the first 40 players, will be "wait listed” until a position opens up.  For those of you who are waitlisted we will let you know as soon as the deadline closes, and we will let you know if you are able to play as soon as we can.


We know things happen, but if you need to withdraw after signing up please contact Vince Kimura by email as soon as possible.  A no show, without prior communication will put you on the waitlist for the next club play.


A few reminders:

  • Thank you for volunteering, without your help we couldn’t do it.  If you have any questions about volunteer duties, please don't hesitate to reach out to the club play committee, or any board member of BIJGA.
  • If you are interested in learning how we put these events together or want to help, feel free to reach out to any member of the club play committee, Daniel Volpe, Vince Kimura or Malcolm Helm.
  • We will be on the lookout for West Hawaii and Waikoloa area Junior families to be on the board, in order to have more even representation of our entire island.  If you have any questions or are interested in attending a board meeting, again please reach out to any of the BIJGA board members out on the course.
  • If your junior is a new member or a new golfer ages 9 or older, and you would like to provide a caddy, please reach out to the Club Play Committee for clarification.
