A Spooky day of golf for Kaua’i juniors

Over here, bogeys come to life as evil witches and eagles are greeted by floating angels.

That’s what’s to expect from a Spooky Stableford Golf Tournament, right? Only the brave can take to the tees on a day like this – you wouldn’t want to know what happens after a double bogey.

The Spooky Stableford Golf Tournament, held by the Kaua’i Junior Golfer’s Association, took place Saturday and featured some of the top junior golfers on the island.
