Chung putted past racial
barriers on golf course

By Craig Gima

Tapa

As a teen-ager, Charlie Chung first learned to play golf using guava sticks for clubs.

He was a caddy at the Oahu Country Club who went on to become the first Chinese-American to win the Manoa Cup in 1924 and 1925 and was the first local champion to win the Hawaiian Open in 1930.

Chung of Honolulu died Friday at Kaneohe's Aloha Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. He was 95.

His newspaper and magazine clips say he was the world's first Chinese-American golf professional. The clips, put together by his family over two years as a present on Chung's 81st birthday, fill four scrapbooks.

“His career was real short. It was only 10 to 12 years, but he accomplished quite a number of firsts,” said his son, Ronald.

Chung said his father broke many racial barriers: the first nonwhite to play in an amateur tournament at Pebble Beach in 1925, a member of the Professional Golf Association before the bylaws were changed to allow nonwhites, hired as a golf pro by the Redlands Country Club, one of the country's oldest private clubs, in 1926.

His father never talked about discrimination on the golf course.

“He was a poor Chinese guy who was a very good golfer,” Chung said. “All these rich guys used to take him golfing. Dad said he always took their money.”

Chung returned to Hawaii in 1929 to become the pro at the Moanalua Golf Course. He went on to be a pro at the Maui Country Club and was manager of the Pali Golf Course from 1957 to 1970.

Chung was a contemporary of Francis Brown. They were both invited to play in the California state amateur tournament in 1925.

With victories in the Manoa Cup behind him, Chung ended Brown's four-year dominance of the tournament. Chung was inducted into the Hawaii Golf Hall of Fame in 1925.

Chung is survived by his wife Mildred, son Ronald, daughter Ember Lee Shinn and sister Lily Lau. Services: 6 p.m. Monday at Hawaiian Memorial Park. Call after 5:30 p.m.

Burial will be private. Casual attire and no flowers.
