Big Island Candies Championship at The Club at Hokuli’a
HAWAI`I STATE OPEN
December 11 – 13, 2015 – Mauna Lani Resort
Last year, the Hawai`i State Open was hosted by 3-time title sponsor Mauna Lani Resort. Partnered with the Aloha Section PGA, Mauna Lani Resort features two, 18-hole championship golf courses and accommodations at the recently remodeled, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel for the players and sponsors. The tournament was played on both North and South courses in 2014.
This year, the tournament will return to Mauna Lani Resort for a fourth time. The Hawai`i State Open features a combined field of professionals and amateurs in various flights for both men and women. The Aloha Section’s flagship event has become a melting pot of touring professionals, PGA club professionals, and the top amateur golfers from Hawai`i, Continental U.S., Japan, Korea, and without a doubt, Iceland. The 54-hole event attracts 180 golfers every year, competing for the $60,000 purse.
Tournament champion Dean Wilson captured his third state open victory last year and is expected to return to defend his title.
2015 Registration will open in September. For more information, please contact the Aloha Section office at 808-593-2230 or by email.
