One thing that excites me about starting a new year is the chance to participate in and support some of my favorite events. And one of those events just happens to be the Sentry Tournament of Champions that’s scheduled for January 2nd through the 6th!

This west Maui event attracts golf pros from all over and tickets are currently on sale. The special tournament will be held at the Plantation Course in Kapalua and you don’t want to miss it! Prices vary but residents can get a special kamaaina discount for a $25 all day pass. 

Are you new to the idea of the Sentry Tournament of Champions? Well let me fill you in. This annual tournament is available only for champions from the 2018 PGA TOUR so you know you’ll be seeing the best of the best. Since the late 90’s, this event has been held on Maui bringing together golf lovers all around the USA. Before being held on Maui, the Tournament of Champions was held at the Las Vegas’ Desert Inn Country Club in started in 1953. The idea came to the tournament leaders to form an event out of the winners from the previous season. For years it was held in Las Vegas before being moved to the La Costa Country Club in Carlsbad, Calif. For 30 years this event was held there until it moved to Maui and bringing with it more than $6 million in donations to the Maui community. Now that’s an event I can get on board with!

This year’s schedule includes a Pro-Am which will begin on Wed., January 2. The professional competition will start the next day (Jan. 3) and on Jan. 6 there will be a 72-hole individual stroke play with the defending champion as Dustin Johnson. For those of you who are looking forward to watching this event, please know there will be complimentary shuttles and free parking at Lahaina Civic Center. Tickets are currently on sale at the official PGA Tour website.

I hope to see you on the green in 2019! Perhaps if our paths cross we can talk real estate on Maui. It’s events such as this one that make it worth living here in paradise. If you’re in the market for a new home, let me help you. I have plenty of listings to view on my website.
