Wailea Old Blue Golf Club – Maui Hawaii 808-879-2530

Dominating Maui’s skyline is the majestic 10,023-foot dormant volcano, Mt. Haleakala. Meandering across her lower foothills are the pristine fairways of the Wailea Old Blue Course. Stretching 6,765 yards from its tips, this classic Arthur Jack Snyder beauty has charmed her way into the heart of many a Wailea golfer. With cooling fountains, serene lakes, exotic blossoms and coral sand bunkers, the Old Blue is a true Hawaiian resort course.
Her immaculate fairways are woven through the resort, offering a picturesque “tour” of Wailea, with spectacular views of the azure ocean and dramatic volcanic slopes. Her graceful design and generous fairways offer a pleasing repast for “weekend” golfers, but elevation changes and strategically placed hazards have tested some of the best professional players. On the Wailea Old Blue Course ocean vistas are to be found at every hole. In fact, years back when the LPGA Women’s Kemper Open was played here, tournament officials had to admonish some of the competitors for slow play. Turns out the pros were dallying at the 12th hole to do a little whale watching.

Kihei, Hawaii, July 16, 2012 – Team Hawaii is gearing up for a very special week on Maui at the beautiful and challenging Wailea Golf Club- Gold Course. The Hawaii Team is led by Captain Cathy Torchiana, LPGA, from Kihei, who retired from college coaching after twelve years at USC and being inducted into the National Golf Coaches Hall of Fame.

Hawaii hosts this prestigious tournament only once every 18 years for the girls and once every 17 years for the boys. The tournament is filled with long standing traditions and ceremony. These traditions embrace the GJAC Philosophy:

Bring together girls from various states and countries
Cultivate new friendships and mutual respect
Promote a better understanding of our regional history and customs
Allow girls to learn about different cultures
Develop pride in self, team, state and country

Hawaii and the HSJGA are anxious to show our mainland and international visitors the real meaning of aloha as the week begins Sunday, July 22 with a “Meet & Greet” at Hotel Wailea. The evening will be filled with good local food, a lei making demonstration, Snag Golf contests and the traditional gift exchange as the teams meet each other and their host families for the week. As the sun sets over the Pacific, the invited guests will enjoy a beautiful and powerful fire dance!

“This event would not be possible without the amazing donations from companies and individuals alike from all around the state and especially the amazing generosity of all the Wailea Host families, who are opening their homes to these young ladies for the week. I know for sure we could not have pulled this off without the Aloha Section PGA and the Wailea Golf Club who are always there for junior golf!” says Mary Bea Porter-King, HSJGA President. Other major sponsors include Pard & Betsy Erdman, Gannon’s A Pacific View Restaurant, HawaiiOnTV, Hotel Wailea, King Auto Group, Liliha Bakery, Marriott Wailea, MC&A and Tihati.
