Round Played: The Kauai Chamber of Commerce Tournament –

By Wayne Halm –

We teed off literally “Under a Rainbow”.

When I looked down the fairway and saw it – I dropped my driver and backed up to take the picture … it was too perfect.

On May 21st 2017 I played in the Kauai Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament at the Poipu Bay Golf Course on Kauai.  Thank you to Enterprise Rent-A-Car for inviting me.

Tim and Samira

This annual tournament is popular and has a large turnout.

A full load … eight players on every tee for the shotgun start.

.

Mayor Carvalho was there. Yeah, I had my picture taken with him … on Kauai you “hobnob” whenever you can.

.

Wendy Akita was there too … so I “hobnobbed” some more.

.

There was a large trophy on the line – and you bet our team wanted to take it home.

The Trophy

.

The Enterprise Team … Tim Takeshita, Jena Ogawa, Wayne Halm, and Samira Siale.

.

The tournament format was a four person Scramble … but with an interesting twist.  On each hole after the tee shot the person who’s ball is used was not allowed to participate in the next shot.  I had not done this before, but after I caught on I liked it.

This was FUN.  The beautiful Poipu Bay Golf Course is a great tournament venue.  The pace of play was good.  The company was fantastic, we laughed a lot … and we were contenders.

The Poipu Bay Course offers opportunities to “just hit it”.

.

And the greens were simply perfect.

.

Then it happened.  On the back nine the old guy (that would be me) began to fade.

Fortunately these ladies stepped up and shouldered the load.

.

And shouldered it with style … Jena..

.

Samira

.

We chased it down the fairways … we chased it across the greens … but Team Enterprise just couldn’t catch the “Pot-of-Gold” at the end of the Rainbow.  But no matter … there is always next year.  And we got enough laughs, jokes, and stories out of this round to last till then.  This was the way golf should be.

I have a 2017 goal of playing golf with 100 people I haven’t met.  Samira doesn’t count, but Tim and Jena are numbers 9 and 10.  Want to be in that number …

Come play golf with me.

  1. Aloha Wayne,

    That is an interesting twist on a scramble – sounds like fun! I suspect if you were allowed to play every shot your team would have had a better chance at that trophy…but the weather looked fantastic and the company even better, so I’m sure you were able to cope.

    Cheers
    Josh

    • Aloha Josh,
      Yes, it was interesting … and after I caught on the the strategies, it was FUN. Our team had a fantastic time … and looked good doing it. Just wait until next year!
      A Hui Hou,
      Wayne
