100 Holes of Golf – one of Maui’s most successful fundraisers & most unknown ultra-distance sporting events on Maui took place at the Wailea Blue Golf course on Saturday, May 28. This was the 45th time it has been played and it has raised over a million dollars for Ka Lima O Maui. On Saturday, 18 determined and generous guys played golf from 5 am to 7 pm to help Ka Lima O Maui, one of Maui’s oldest non-profits. Led by Larry Stubblefield, there is no shortage of heroes in this group who play to help people with disabilities that live and work on Maui. This will be Larry’s 40th year participating in it and the 39th time he has organized it. Not to be overlooked were David Robinson who completed his 30th year of doing 100 Holes and Dale Madden who complete his 20th year of 100 Holes. Dale, at age 76, is the oldest person to complete it. In the background, doing whatever needed to be done to make everything go smoothly was John Junk who has completed 35 – 100 Holes of Golf. Like we said, no shortages of HEROS in the 100 Holes of Golf.
A heartfelt MAHALO NUI LOA goes to the dedicated golfers and all the sponsors, including Wailea Golf, Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui, Four Seasons Resort Maui, Grand Wailea –A Waldorf Astoria Resort, Wailea Beach Resort- Marriott, Maui, Mulligans, Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, Tri-Star Restaurant Group and Aaron Placourakis and Tom Thayer.
Finally, we extend a special “Thank You” to Larry Stubblefield for his long-standing commitment to making the 100 Holes of Golf No Ka Oi.
