Kauai, Oahu to vie in golf
Amateur players will represent each island in three divisions for both men and women
Kauai Mayor Bryan Baptiste and Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann have established a Mayors' Challenge Cup -- an amateur golf tournament featuring teams from each county competing on public links courses.
The inaugural Challenge Cup, which is funded by private sponsors, will be held Nov. 10-11 at the Ala Wai Golf Course.
Each mayor will field a 12-member team consisting of nine men and three women who are residents of his respective county. The men's competition will consist of three divisions: open, seniors (50 years and older) and super seniors (60 years and older). The women's competition will consist of three levels based on ability.
The teams will be selected through a qualifying competition held on municipal courses on Kauai and Oahu. Kauai's qualifying event will be held from Sept. 28 to Oct. 14 at the Wailua Municipal Golf Course. Oahu's qualifying event will be Oct. 6 and 7 at the Ala Wai Golf Course.
Golfers interested in participating may attend informational meetings at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Pali Golf Course and Sept. 4 at the Ted Makalena Golf Course.
