SPECIAL NOTICE: Chairman’s Rescheduled Message
MESSAGE FROM THE
GUAHAN LAS VEGAS GOLF CLUB
CONCERNING THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE CLASSIC
March 16, 2020
As you have all read the Chairman’s announcement, the decision was made over this past weekend to postpone the 39th Annual Hafa Adai Golf Classic, previously scheduled for next month (April 2020) as a direct result of COVID 19 (the Corona Virus Pandemic).
We here in Las Vegas are sadden at the fact that this postponement was not only necessary, but in the interest of public health and more importantly the health of our members, players and guests.
Unfortunately, we were unable to reschedule this program in the remaining months of 2020.
With this bad news, we do have some good news. Everyone will still have a reason, and get an opportunity to make the trip to Las Vegas to not only visit one of the most incredible cities in the United States, but also play a couple of rounds of the most fantastic, competitive and challenging game known to mankind – no, not the “Slots” – GOLF!!!
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE HAVE A YEAR TO REFRESH AND REVITALIZE THIS FANTASTIC EVENT!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! We have successfully rescheduled the 39th Annual Hafa Adai Golf Classic for Wednesday April 28th and Thursday, April 29th, 2021 here in Las Vegas, Nevada!!!
We do not anticipate any changes to the original program, except that the dates have necessarily changed because of the new year; and the rules governing the use of our State Parks for the Barbeque require that we “re-start” the reservation process all-over again. This means we cannot secure the park for our BBQ until January 2021.
In case you were wondering…. Despite the one-year postponement, there will be no increase in the fees. What we were paying this year, we will be paying again in 2021.
More good news: We will be using the same courses “Palm Valley and Highland Falls Golf Courses.
Our club is still assessing the impact of this move and are now actively setting ourselves up for executing a refund of everyone’s entry and dinner guest fees and side action wagers. We did evaluate the possibility of giving everyone refund options to consider, however we decided that given the one-year delay, it was neither prudent nor necessary.
We plan to have all refunds in the mail to either you individually or to your sponsoring club by not later than April 30, 2020.
If you made reservations with any of the hotels here in Las Vegas, please call them and cancel your reservations (unless you decide that you still want to come for other reasons “not” related to the Classic).
If you used a Credit Card to hold your Suncoast room(s), call 855-214-4563, they will immediately credit your card; it may take your credit card company several days to post the refund to your account.
If you paid by check, it may take them up to 30 days to return your funds.
Go to www.hafaadaigolfclassic.com for more current information in the upcoming weeks and months. We will keep you posted on the “registration” re-start date. We encourage you all to invite anyone and everyone you know that would like to play golf in Las Vegas to register and support the Classic!
I respectfully ask for your patience as we move through the process.
Roland F. Taitano
President, Guahan Las Vegas Golf Club of Nevada
