Groundbreaking Ceremony for Hilo Municipal Golf Course Improvements

Hawai‘i County Mayor Billy Kenoi, County Councilman Dennis “Fresh” Onishi, and the Department of Parks and Recreation invite the public to a blessing and groundbreaking ceremony for improvements to the Hilo Municipal Golf Course.  It will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, August 14, at the golf course located at 340 Haihai Street.

Golf Course

Join Mayor Kenoi, Councilman Onishi, and other dignitaries in commemorating the start of construction work at the 18-hole links. Light refreshments will be served.  Jacobsen Construction has been hired to rebuild four greens, the course clubhouse, cart-storage building, rain shelters, comfort stations and a maintenance building.

Also, the contractor will replace course waterlines, perform structural repairs and install accessible walkways at the driving range, build new bridges along the cart course, replace the Kawailani Street fence, and install new fencing fronting Haihai Street.

Construction work is expected to be finished in November 2016. The Department of the Parks and Recreation and the contractor will work to minimize impacts to Hilo Municipal Golf Course users. The course will remain open through most of the construction phase. However, a modified, 9-hole course will be offered between February and May 2016 to accommodate the construction.

Improving Hawai‘i County’s only public golf course is another example of Mayor Kenoi’s commitment to upgrade park sites island wide to meet the needs of a diverse and growing population.
