The 50th anniversary of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Autograph Collection, located on Hawaii's Big Island, comes to a close with the 42nd Annual Mauna Kea Pro-Am, taking place December 2-7. The course was first christened in 1964.

Welcoming club professionals and amateurs alike, golfers can enjoy six days and five nights of championship golf, luxury accommodations, exquisite Hawaiian cuisine, prizes, and more.

“Our Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed course has always proven challenging for all levels of golfers,” said Josh Silliman, Mauna Kea's director of golf, in a written release. “When the fairways were lengthened in 2008 by son Rees Jones and our 99 bunkers enlarged, the challenge continued, right along with all the special memories this legendary course provides.”
