On Friday May 11, more than 220 golfers gathered to play in the 22nd Annual ‘Iolani Alumni Association Golf Tournament at the Hawai‘i Prince Golf Course. The players enjoyed beautiful weather, great prizes and delicious food and drinks.

Many of the players and teams went home with great prizes and all of the players took home ‘Iolani Alumni Association logo Hydro Flasks. Players also enjoyed Big City Diner chili & rice bowls, gelato, and plenty of drinks throughout the course.
