August 27, 2020 Temporary Closing Statement

To all of our valued guests and community,
With the Governor’s two week shutdown announcement on Tuesday, Ko Olina Golf Club will be closed effective today, August 27, 2020.

While we know golf is an entertaining and healthy outdoor game that can be enjoyed by all, we understand we must continue to take every measure possible to protect the health and safety of our employees and guests.

Our tentative re-opening date is September 10, 2020. Our staff has already begun cancelling tee times for the next two weeks. Our phones will be shut down during our temporary closing, though you may continue to contact us via email at golf@koolina.com. You can also continue to view updates on our website and social platforms. Additionally, you may continue to book tee times online for future dates while we are closed.

We encourage everyone to continue to wear masks, social distance, avoid large gatherings, and wash your hands. We must continue to work together to come out of this pandemic successfully. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Remember to keep stretching and keep your legs in shape so you’re ready to hit it long and far after the lay-off! Stay well and be safe!

Greg Nichols, PGA
General Manager,
