Club Car recently presented a check for $5,000 to PGA REACH, a charitable foundation dedicated to positively impacting the lives of veterans, youth and diverse populations through the game of golf. The funds will benefit the Aloha PGA Section Foundation.

Kevin Hayashi’s seventh career ace captured the “Club Car Closest to the Hole Section Challenge” at the 49th PGA Professional Championship at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York. Presented by Club Car, Mercedes-Benz and OMEGA, the 2016 Championship concluded June 29.
