The Aloha Section PGA Classic Scramble is the largest fundraising event of the year for the Aloha Section PGA Foundation non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable event. The mission of the Foundation is to develop and promote the interest in the game of golf while enhancing the lives of those that participate.
For our 3rd year, golfers from across the state traveled to Mid-Pacific Country Club located in beautiful Lanikai on the island of Oahu to participate in the PGA Classic Scramble. Despite the slick greens that the course is famous for, this charitable pro-am was able to keep its reputation of being the fastest golfing fundraiser played in 4 hours filled with smiles and laughter. This exclusive field of 32 teams is comprised of industry leaders, major sponsors of the PGA Aloha Section and supporters of the game of golf in Hawaii. Through a collective partnership with National Car Rental and the PGA of America, the winners, TEAM ABM ONSITE SERVICES – Steve Choo, Puna Choo, and Juan Rodriguez, PGA, will be entered into a drawing in the National ProAm Series to spend a day with Keegan Bradley, the winner of the 2011 PGA Championship, and his father PGA Professional Mark Bradley, who serve as ambassadors for the Series.
In addition to the exceptional golf experience, the generosity from our sponsors helped us raise money to support the Aloha Section PGA Foundation scholarship program. At the awards banquet following the pro-am, the scholarship selection committee of the Aloha Section PGA Foundation presented this year’s recipients: Mika Walker from Kaiser High School and Leimana Trainor from Kamehameha Schools at Kapālama. They each received $5,000 in scholarships and financial aid will be awarded.
The PGA Classic Scramble is one of two events hosted by the Aloha Section in 2015. The next National ProAm Series event will be held at Mauna Lani Resort in December during the Hawaii State Open.
Mahalo to National Car Rental for their support of this event and the National Car Rental PGA ProAm Series.
