The Luau is moving to a new location! Introducing…The Sydney R Marovitz Golf Course (formerly Waveland Golf Course)!!! Yes you read that right, we rented an entire golf course! Located along Lake Shore Drive between Irving Park Road and Montrose Ave, the golf course offers a central location, beautiful scenery with lake and city views, pristine grass and more accessible parking for the event. All of the same great features of the Luau remain intact at the new location – breakfast and lunch for all participants, unlimited Bud Light for all participants, over $6000 in cash prizes, great DJ tunes all day long blasting from the Bud Light party deck, the costume contest with cash prizes and more! Play a game of life-size beer pong or stop by the Southern Comfort VIP area for a whiskey lemonade sample! More sponsors are coming on board every day, so stay tuned for new additions to the Luau lineup! Spectators are encouraged and welcome to come; a wristband can be purchased and includes all-you-can-eat and drink during the day. Stay tuned for info on the post party!
Rain or shine - no refunds.

As in years past, Luau registration is priced on a per player basis, meaning that if you have 3 players for a triple's team, you pay for 3 players, if you have 4 players for a triples team, you pay for 4 players, etc. The 4's & 6's divisions work the same way where you pay per player, NOT per team. Each registrant's fee includes tournament play, breakfast, lunch and beer (10a-5p). Beer will be available for purchase before 10am. Only paying participants/spectators may take part in the tournament and all of the festivities. Shirts are SOLD OUT! Any new registered teams will not receive shirts.
Not playing? No problem! Spectator passes are available for purchase and include food and beer throughout the day! Click here to purchase your spectator pass in advance.
