The APJC is an annual Ryder Cup style junior golf tournament that recognizes and rewards the ability of young men and women from Hawaii & Japan, while raising awareness and monies for a variety of local charitable organizations. The APJC is an educational and recreational vehicle by which talented young men and women from different cultures compete in a positive and friendly atmosphere with the potential of creating long-lasting bonds.

The Asia Pacific Junior Cup is in its 12th year. The event started with the vision of Mark Wang, President & CEO of Hilton Grand Vacations and Mary Bea Porter-King, President of HSJGA, who wanted to foster goodwill between Hawaii and international players in a fun Ryder Cup style tournament. The event was hosted by Waikoloa Kings’ Course for the first 10 years then went to Japan in 2016 & 2017. The event will now rotate every other year between Hawaii and Japan.
