More than 150 of the nation’s most talented young golfers began to arrive today at Kaanapali Golf Courses as they prepare for the first-ever U.S. Kids Golf Kaanapali Hawaiian Classic. From December 20-22, the resort will host the fifth and final regional championship on the 2010 U.S. Kids Golf Foundation schedule.

The field consists of 167 participants and counting, with more than 60 coming from the host state of Hawaii. The remainder of the field consists of players from 21 states, Canada, Guam, Hong Kong, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom. The top three finishers from each age division will earn top status with U.S. Kids Golf, which includes an invitation to the 2011 World Championship at Pinehurst Resort and the 2011 European Championship in Scotland.

The Kaanapali Hawaiian Classic will consist of three rounds, from Monday, December 20, to Wednesday, December 22.

Headlining the tournament field is 2010 Junior PGA Champion Cassy Isagawa of Wailuku, Hawaii. She qualified for the 2010 Junior Ryder Cup in Scotland, where she earned 1.5 out of a possible two points to help the United States defeat Europe. Isagawa will compete in the Girls 15-18 division. The Kaanapali Hawaiian Classic is the only regional tournament on the 2010 U.S. Kids Golf schedule that features a 15-18 division for boys and girls.

Players will be playing either the Royal Kaanapali or Kaanapali Kai Course based on age division.
