Hawaii Winter Pro-Am logo

Seventeen teams of Pacific Northwest Section professionals and their amateurs enjoyed a week of sun and fun on the Big Island of Hawaii, January 10-17, 2013. As usual, the weather was a predictable 83 degrees with just light winds. Perfect for golf, sightseeing or just laying on the beach.

When they were not soaking in the rays, watching the Seahawks game at the Pool Bar, or enjoying the island hospitality there was a little golf to play. Three rounds over the North and South courses at Mauna Lani yielded our first tie for the title with Norm Blandel and Mike Schoner leading their teams to the joint victory at 264 for the best two days of three stableford competition.
