The Aloha Section PGA and Kapalua Golf, are proud to announce the partnership with Visa Worldwide as a major sponsor of the Visa Hall of Fame Championship. The Hall of Fame tournament which has been played since 1988 is a major event for the Aloha Section PGA consisting of three flights and a purse of $25,000. The first tee time for Round #1 will be at 11:00AM on Sunday with our Championship Flight teeing off first, followed by the Super Senior, and Senior Flights.
Pairings for Round #2 will be available about 45 minutes after the last group finishes. The first tee time for Round #2 will be 7:30AM. Players will be paired by their gross score from Round #1, with the leaders teeing off last within each flight. The tee time rotation for Round #2 will be as followed; Super Senior, Senior, and Championship Flight.
The Hall of Fame tournament has been played at Kapalua since 1988 starting with GTE as the major sponsor before being bought by Hawaiian TELCOM and Verizon. The tournament was then sponsored by Visa for a few years and now Visa has signed an agreement with Kapalua to be a “Proud Sponsor” of the resort allocating money to support the traditional Hall of Fame Championship and PRO-AM, and the Annual Food and Wine Festival at Kapalua. The history of the tournament draws players from all of the state to participate and because it’s a sanctioned event of the Aloha Section PGA, players must be PGA Class-A members (Professionals who have obtained membership from the PGA of America through their management program).
