Aloha HIGA Members:

 

Some of you have voiced your concerns about the HIGA’s recent fee increase from $14.00 to $18.00.  Unfortunately, it’s a sign of the times.  The HIGA is facing rising costs as we attempt to provide golf handicap services to you.  Aside from the costs of posting your handicaps twice monthly, we have additional costs such as mail box rental, website maintenance fees, six-man team subsidies and, most recently, a $2.00 per member fee being assessed by the USGA starting in April 2019.

The HIGA is currently collecting dues for 2019.  The cost is $18.00.  Members who have not paid their dues by February 28, 2019 will be removed from the membership roster.  Please submit your check or money order to:

               HIGA

               P.O. Box 855

Reminder to members

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.

Thank you

Slow play at Hilo Municipal Golf Course

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.
