Benefiting the Hawaii Foodbank
Courses Throughout the State
July - August, 2020
Entries Close: Wednesday June 24, 2020 at 5:00PM HST
Traditional Match Play format with consolation brackets formed after the 1st Round.
Open to HSJGA Members in good standing who have passed the HSJGA Rules Quiz and complete the HSJGA Questionnaire. Juniors are welcomed to “Play-Up” in the event that their division does not meet the minimum number of players, but will automatically be placed on a wait-list and only allowed to play-up if space is available.
Players must have an active and up-to-date Handicap Index that includes all scores on the date of entry. A player with a scoring record that displays an NH is not eligible until scores are entered into the system.
Juniors will be seeded based on their Handicap Index on date on which entries close with any ties being broken by a random draw. Lowest Handicap Index will receive the #1 seed and so on.
