Round Played: with Matt, Kevin, and Alejandro –
By Wayne Halm –
Did you see the TV news pictures of the ominous skies, threatening clouds, and angry surf on Maui as Hurricane Lester passed 150 miles to the north? They looked scary. But I didn’t see any film crews on Kauai.
So I guess it is up to me to show you what conditions were like on Kauai as the storm passed – of course there is a golf course involved.
On September 3rd 2016 I played the Kiahuna Golf Club with Matt Kleefison, Kevin Pemberton, and Alejandro Moxey. The storm was further away than the television implied … and we just felt the need.

We looked at this day as an unexpected gift and were determined to make the best of it. Just a bunch of guys out on a golf course to have FUN.
The Kiahuna Golf Club is not on the ocean but you can see the ocean. The course is pretty and has some old time ruins on the property.
This was a great day. There is something really satisfying about snitching a round of golf out of the jaws of a hurricane. It was a lot of fun.
This was the way golf should be.
I have a 2016 goal of playing golf with 100 people that I don’t know. Matt, Kevin and Alejandro are numbers 35, 36, and 37. Want to be in that number?
Come play golf with me.

As always, you make Kauai inviting!
It’s easy because Kauai is a great place – with some great golf courses.
A Hui Hou,
You are some brave souls staring down that storm and heading to the course. Somehow you found a way to persevere and have fun. If those are what the storms are like in Kauai, I’ll take my chances golfing in one or two of them come December.
Brave souls? Sally had some other terms for us – but we had fun.
I’m looking forward to December.
A Hui Hou,
