Golf scramble benefits nursing students

On an overcast Saturday morning, 100 women sat in their golf carts and eagerly awaited the shotgun start of the 4th annual Mokihana Club Women’s Golf Scramble.

The lovely Mokihana Golf Course at the Lagoons lay before them, with the possibility of having the winning team.

The golfers had just purchased mulligans and “closest to the pin,” with hopes of finishing up top.

Volunteers gave out tropical print T-bags and water to all the excited entrants while others arranged the many prizes in the Terrace Restaurant.

The rain hadn’t dampened their spirits as they returned to the club house for a delicious buffet luncheon shared with volunteers and many Mokihana Club members.

The moment of truth arrived when Chairman Mary Davis announced the winning teams.

The first-place team members, coming in with a score of 70, were Annelise Martin, Sharon Bazzell, Mei Lin Poai, and Ada Koene.

Second place was won by the team of Lucy Kaholokula, Leila Kamakele, Tracy Rymsha, and Wynne Ushigome.

Every golfer received a prize during lunch.

These gifts were donated by the generous business and professional community of Kaua‘i.

All profits of the scramble exclusively support the Mokihana Club’s Nursing Scholarship Fund.

In the three years since the inception of this fund 19 scholarships have been given to nursing students studying for their RN degrees at Kaua’i Community College.

This year, The Mokihana Club awarded $9,000 to nursing students at KCC. The club members were fortunate to have as their guest at the golf luncheon one of the recipients, Leslie Koga of Lihu‘e.

The Mokihana Club extends a big mahalo to everyone in the community, members and their families who helped in so many big and small ways to make the day a success.
