Jim Peterson puts on the ninth hole during the 33rd Kodiak Island Golf Championships in Aug. 2019 at Bear Valley Golf Course. 

Golfers get an extra week to tune-up for the Island Golf Championship. 

Event organizers announced on Thursday that the 34th edition of the championship is being pushed back to Labor Day weekend, Sept. 6-7. 

The 36-hole tournament was scheduled to tee off Saturday, but, with rain in the forecast for this weekend, was postponed a week. 

Labor Day weekend was the home for the Island Golf Championship until 2016 when organizers moved it up a week to draw more participants. 

The tournament started in 1987 as a scholarship fundraiser for the Kodiak Noon Rotary Club. The Morning Rotary Club took over the event in 2014. All of the money collected goes to scholarships, while the winners get bragging rights as the island’s best golfer.

To sign up, contact the Bear Valley Golf Course at 487-5323.
