The University of Hawaii at Hilo Alumni and Friends Association is hosting a golf tournament Friday, August 6, at the Hapuna Prince Golf Course. Registration is at 7:30 a.m. with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.

Tournament format is two-man (best ball). USGA rules will govern the tournament as modified by local course rules with 70% of individual June handicap applied to figure individual net scores and two free mulligans per player.

The entry fee is $175 per player, which includes green fees, cart, prizes and a buffet lunch. Prizes include a car for the first player to ace the 13th hole as well as a lucky number drawing for prizes, including travel and free golf. Registration and payment deadline is July 15. To register, call (808) 974-7501.

“This is not going to be a run-of-the-mill fundraising golf tournament,” said tournament chairman Kapena Lum. “We’re going to spice things up. We’re really looking to put on a quality event and to help further solidify relations between the UH Hilo Alumni & Friends Association and the community.

“Everyone receives a set of commemorative items for the tournament, including a commemorative, dry-fit golf polo shirt, hat, golf paraphernalia and other goodies.”

The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is offering special room rates to all tournament participants, including $145 for a terrace view room, $155 partial ocean view, $170 ocean view, $190 premium ocean view and $220 ocean front.
