Maui Country Club Hosts U.S. Kids Golf Championship
Dec 15, 2018
On Saturday, December 15, young Maui golfers will compete in the first U.S. Kids Maui Championship at Maui Country Club in Spreckelsville with a non-shotgun start at 7:00 a.m. The competitors range in age from 5-14 years, having qualified for the season finale by competing in at least four events (having met the scoring requirement two or more times).
A Local Tour consists of six or eight one-day tournaments including a season-ending one-day Local Tour Championship. All tournaments are based on the scaled yardages for their age and gender; and players earn awards and points for each tournament. Like the PGA Tour, players at U.S. Kids Golf events are encouraged to have caddies to help them play their best.
Parent caddies are strongly encouraged to join their player out on the course, and the camaraderie that develops between families is a real benefit. The children gain experience and have fun playing competitive golf.
U.S. Kids Golf is the most complete junior golf program with certified instructors coaching game-based learning. “Maui is fortunate to have multiple certified instructors,” Mark Shimamura, Maui Country Club Golf Pro said, “Renee Lee of Wailea Golf Courses has been instrumental in launching the program on Maui. We are happy to host the Championship and hope for a great turnout to support these amazing young competitors.” Interested parents can find a certified pro at www.uskidsgolf.com/coaches. U.S. Kids Golf Tournaments are offered worldwide, and the pinnacle is the World Championship held at Pinehurst, North Carolina.
Following the Tour Championship at Maui Country Club, there is a three-month break for kids to practice and hone their golf skills. The Spring 2019 tour will be announced soon. For more information go to www.uskidsgolf.com/tournaments/local-tours/registration-information
About U.S. Kids Golf
The mission of U.S. Kids Golf is to help kids have fun learning the lifelong game of golf and to encourage family interaction that builds lasting memories. U.S. Kids Golf was started as a family business desiring to stay true to the mission and purpose of bringing kids into the game. Because providing the right equipment needed to be coupled with improved programs, coaching, and opportunity for competition, like other organized sports, the Foundation was started. The vision of families spending time together outdoors and playing golf is the heart and passion of U.S. Kids Golf.
