The Pelzer Golf Hawaiian Paradise Pro-Am took place on January 13-20, 2022. The Pacific Northwest PGA had 11 teams on Maui for seven days, enjoying the sunshine and hospitality of the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa on one of Hawaii’s most beautiful islands. Craig Pelzer welcomed our teams to the popular Royal Kaanapali Course and challenging Kaanapali Kai Course. In between rounds, players had the opportunity to enjoy excursions on a helicopter tour, deep sea fishing or just soaking up some rays on the beach. 

We are proud to have Pelzer Golf Supplies as our title sponsor with ProTag, Radmor and 4ORE Nutrition as supporting sponsors.

The Pelzer Golf Hawaiian Paradise Pro-Am is a five-man team of one professional and four amateurs playing stableford competitions. There are daily team prizes, daily professional prizes, daily amateur gross and net prizes, as well as overall prizes for the professionals and teams.

Kaanapali Golf Courses

The very popular Royal Kaanapali Course hugs the shoreline before winding its way to the West Maui Mountain foothills. Legendary Arnold Palmer was quoted as saying that the 18th hole was one of the best and most challenging finishing holes he had ever played. The hole plays longer than it looks, hugging the brackish water canal the entire length of the fairway and green, making it a memorable last hole.

The challenging Kaanapali Kai Course features subtle, undulating greens with natural canals, trenches and lava rock boundaries which lie along many of the holes. The course is also beautifully landscaped with native flowers such as the Hawaii state flower Hibiscus, not to mention the prevalent Norfolk pines and coconut trees that border many fairways with sweeping views of the West Maui Coast and neighbor islands Molokai and Lanai.

We hope you join us next January for another amazing Hawaiian adventure!
