TaylorMade DRIVING RELIEF

Sunday, May 17th marks the return of live televised golf. However, the players will not compete for FedEx Cup Points, trophies or world rankings. They’ll be playing for something far greater, the health and safety of our communities.

A look at Ko Olina Golf Club's current operations and outlook for the future

By Christina O'Connor Apr 10, 2020 Published on: Pacific Business News( Opens in New Tab )
Category: COVID-19

When Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell directed all golf courses to pause operations on April 1 in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, Ko Olina Golf Club had already been closed for more than a week.

“Our first priority, as is everybody’s, is to the health and safety of our employees and our guests,” Greg Nichols, general manager and director of golf at Ko Olina Golf Club, told Pacific Business News. “We joined our resort partners who also took that same stance in [closing]. We just felt like it was the right thing to do.”

Ko Olina Golf Club has tentatively planned to re-open on May 1, but Nichols said that they are re-evaluating that on a weekly basis.

In the interim period, Ko Olina Golf Club is preparing to re-open by maintaining its facility and staying in touch with customers.

“We remain hopeful and optimistic. We hope everyone during this time can stay healthy and well, and we can’t wait to see them back...
