Golf Classic to Help Shriners Hospital Transportation Fund

Aloha Golf Classic tees off today

By Ron Ige • Pacific Daily News

The Hui Aikane Golf Club will hold its 16th Annual Aloha Golf Classic today and tomorrow at Starts Guam Golf Resort.

This tournament is one of the most prestigious on Guam because, unlike most fundraisers, it is a 36-hole individual stroke play tournament.

Players are placed in the following flights: Championship, A, B, C, ladies and seniors. Champions will be crowned in each flight.

Vic Borja, Guam's amateur champion, and Louie Sunga are the favorites in the Men's Division. Tessie Blair, 2009 ladies champion, is the overwhelming favorite among the women. Barry Wilson, Guam's senior champion, and Bill Garris will be top contenders in the Seniors Flight.

Shriners will be one of the beneficiaries of the tournament proceeds. These funds will be used to help the Shriners transport sick children to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Hawaii.
