Golfers Scramble to Raise Money

Competitors at the third annual “Two Man Scramble” golf tournament shot it out last Saturday on a clear and beautiful morning. The public tournament was hosted by the Molokai High School girl’s volleyball team and held at the Kaluakoi Golf Course. Over 58 golfers came out to support the volleyball team.

Participants paid a $70 entry fee to help raise funds to cover the team’s traveling expenses when they go to Kauai and Oahu for their pre-season games in August. Girl’s volleyball coach, Matthew Helm, said the event was the most successful one yet, both in participant turn out and in raising funds.

After the tournament the golfers gathered in the courtyard for a meal and prizes. Members of the volleyball team served the golfers a delicious Hawaiian meal cooked by the booster club. Prizes awarded to the winners included cash, a one night stay at the Kaluakoi Resort, a free round of golf at the Kaluakoi Golf Course and a $50 gift certificate to the Molokai Fine Arts Gallery.

George Chun and Tess Mollena won first place in the tournament. Coming in second place were Tony Lauifi and Randy Fujimori. Third place went to Ron Nakagawa and his nephew Puni, visiting from Honolulu. Keith Hiroshima and Ashley Dudon took fourth place and Carl Cameros and Kiku Donnelly took fifth place. Over 58 golfers played in the tournament. Prizes awarded to the winners included cash, a one night stay at the Kaluakoi Resort, a free round of golf at the Kaluakoi Golf Course and a $50 gift certificate to the Molokai Fine Arts Gallery.

In a “two man scramble” each team consist of two golfers, after each shot the best lying shot is chosen and both players play from that location until the ball is holed.
