Kailua - Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii

For airfares, I recommend contacting the group departments of the major airlines that fly into Kona International Airport (KOA):

1.  United Airlines

2.  Alaska Airlines

3.  American Airlines

4.  Hawaiian Airlines

5.  West Jet

6.  Delta Airlines

7.  Air Canada

​I would contact their group departments.  They will ask for a deposit per person and that will hold the fare and then you have time to pay off the balance.



​(Package includes tournament and all tournament events listed on home page)

​$359 per player (11 or 12 players per team)

$375 per player (9 or 10 players per team)
