The mission of this event is to continue the development of young professionals in the industry and this vision is shared by our sponsors. We are very fortunate to have their continued support — Honolulu Country Club, Neal Takara (Titleist), Keith Kodani (Foot Joy), Joey Castillo (Ping Golf), and Wade Nishimoto. We would also like to thank Les Tamashiro for his foresight to create this event for golf assistants who aspire to obtain PGA membership.
Rick Castillo, PGA (Director of Golf at The King Kamehameha Golf Club) was our guest speaker at today’s awards luncheon. The topic of today’s educational seminar was “Keeping it Professional” reinforcing the unwritten policies and code of ethics of the golf industry. Mahalo Rick for making the trip to Oahu today to share you mana’o.
