Renovation will begin on Waiehu Municipal Golf Course’s back nine greens starting April 16, the County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation announced Thursday.
The upgrades will not impact 18-hole play until May.
In May, at a date to be determined, the back nine, holes 10 through 18, will be closed for renovation.
The projected closure is three to four months, weather dependent. During the closure, people are encouraged to play twice the front nine, for an 18-hole game of beautiful beachfront municipal golf.
The renovation will include removal of existing Bermuda grass on the greens and collars, and installation of Seashore Paspalum grass.
During the facelift, 16 to 19 percent of the current greens soil profile will be modified to provide a great growing medium for the new paspalum.
Other work includes complete aerification of the back nine, tee box remediation, continued weed eradication, and beautification projects to improve the overall playing conditions at the golf course.
