Thank you for continuing your membership with the Hawaii Island Golf Association.
The Hawaii Island Golf Association mourns the loss of its friend, supporter and Vice Chairman Arnie Asato, who was apparently lost at sea after a night-fishing accident. Arnie was active in everything golf related, from Junior Golf to our bi-annual six-man team tournaments, and was a staunch supporter of the Hawaii Island Golf Association and its mission. He was a friend to all and will be truly missed. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Wendy and the rest of his family.
Just a reminder to HMGC members. Please make sure you provide a date on your scorecards. I have come across numerous cards with no date.
Please provide your First Name, Last Name and member number (6 digits) on your scorecards. Please refrain from using nick names or aliases. Please also mark which tees your round of golf was played.
In the past I have tried to research scorecards that do not have legible names and member numbers. Because of the increased number of members, scorecards and twice a month posting of rosters. I am no longer researching these scorecards.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
The problem of slow play has become an issue at the Hilo Municipal Golf Course.
For whatever reason (personal habits, playing from the wrong tees, size of group,
pairings of golfers, etc.), slow play is becoming a problem at our municipal golf course.
The HIGA is encouraging its members to practice good golf etiquette and be aware of
your pace of play. Please try to keep up with the group in front of you. If a group of
golfers is particularly slow, report it to the Starter's Office and the Starter's Office will
speak to them. A round of golf should take no longer than four and one half hours.
Let's be considerate of our fellow golfers.
