: Local + Community ~ Waikoloa Beach & Kings’ Golf Course   Leave a comment

           Waikoloa Beach & Kings’ Golf Course

🔸The Beach Course

Opened in 1981, the Robert Trent Jones II-designed Beach Course is Big Island Golf at its finest. A classic resort-style layout, it won’t beat you up with length, better players will appreciate the strategic shot values required, and everyone will thrill at its beauty. But what makes the Beach Course one of the most popular on Hawaii Island is the amazing views, particularly as players reach No. 7 tee box. The Pacific Ocean is straight before you, while lava fields border the fairway on the left and right. A good tee ball should find the wide fairway, but beware, the wind can blow harder here by the shoreline than elsewhere on the course, so aim wisely.

🔸Kings’ Course
Waikoloa Beach Resort Golf reaches a crescendo at the Kings’ Course, which delivers a memorable round from the first tee to the 18th green. It is a “player’s course” in the sense that low-handicappers can tee it up from 7,000-plus yards and have all the length and strategy they can handle; while mid- and high-handicap players can select a tee that will provide the same excitement and challenge, but at a length that suites their game. Designers Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish crafted a Scottish links-style layout at the Kings’ Course.

Hawaii Island golf doesn’t get any better than this!

End of The Year cleanup at the Puako Boat Ramp   Leave a comment

img_1091

End of The Year cleanup at the Puako Boat Ramp is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2016. Meet at 7:30am.

Mahalo Volunteers and Partners!

Everyone has to be proud of their contribution to marine conservation on the South Kohala Coast. Total documented plastics were 63.7% of the 6291 pounds of marine debris and land based trash volunteers removed from our water, shoreline and trails.

We had a variety of activities for local volunteers to choose from the year. Cleanups were combined with environmental awareness sign workshops. Hawaii elementary, middle, high school and foreign students joined several of our cleanups. Hawaii visitors also attended several of our cleanup.

Your tax exempt donations will keep us sustainable. Help us to continue our marine conservation work and educational programs on the South Kohala Coast. Email kpb@hawaii.rr.com.
