Golf Post: News – Bad and Good –
By Wayne Halm –
I’ve got news about golf on Kauai.
News: Timbers Resort has purchased the Kauai Lagoons Golf Course and renamed it Hokuala.
Bad News: The front nine at Hokuala is suffering Bermuda Decline and has been taken out of play.
Good News: The Ocean nine at Hokuala is still in play!! And I took advantage of it.
On December 13th 2015 I played the Ocean nine at Hokuala with Dennis and Barb Lajeunesse from Vancouver, Canada and their friend Sheila Cardno from Sacramento, California. It was good to be back on a golf course – and this three made it even better.
This was a good day for me – I felt strong and struck the ball well. A couple of high points – I drove the 16th green – and I birdied my arch-nemesis 17th hole.
Dennis, Barb, and Sheila are great golfing buddies – we laughed a lot. However, I do want to make a comment about the ladies.
I only had time to go around the nine once – yes, even in paradise there are demands on my time. But that was enough to remind me how much I love to play golf with people. You know I was a happy camper.
Come play golf with me.
