Pacific Links Hawai‘i to Launch Golf O‘ahu Kama‘aina Rewards Program
Members will enjoy discounted rates at all Pacific Links Hawai‘i courses
HONOLULU (July 9, 2013) – Pacific Links Hawai‘i is giving kama‘aina golf enthusiasts something new to cheer about – the company announced today that it will soon launch a Golf O‘ahu Kama‘aina Rewards program, providing golfers with savings and benefits at their golf courses on O‘ahu .
“We’re pleased to launch the new Pacific Links Golf O‘ahu program, which will allow local golfers to tee-off at all four of our courses in Hawai‘i and enjoy a significant savings,” said Micah Kane, chief operating officer of Pacific Links Hawai‘i. “Whether you play twice a week of twice a month, the Golf O‘ahu program provides priority access to a growing portfolio of courses on O’ahu and includes driving range and practice facility usage; for those who love golf – it’s a great way to get outdoors and ‘malama i kou ola kino’ – be good to yourself.”
Participating courses on O‘ahu include Kapolei Golf Club, Royal Hawaiian Golf Club, Olomana Golf Links and Makaha Valley Country Club (East), with added benefits at Makaha Golf Club (West) which is currently under construction. Program participants will enjoy protected and preferred tee times and receive exclusive invitations to Pacific Links Hawai‘i clinics and social events.
Kapolei Golf Club, a former sugar plantation, is now the sweet spot for the Pacific Links Hawai‘i Championship and one of O‘ahu’s premier courses. Designed by famed architect Ted Robinson, Kapolei Golf Club is known for its strategic holes; the 80 bunkers and five lakes provide delightful, tactical challenges. It is rated 4.5 out of five stars on Golf Digest’s Places to Play listing and earned the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s People’s Choice Award as “Best Course on O‘ahu” in 2010.
Royal Hawaiian Golf Club, located at the foot of O‘ahu’s magnificent Ko‘olau Mountains, was designed by legendary Pete Dye and son Perry, who integrated crafty golf holes into the tumbling terrain that is framed by ancient jungle trees upwards of 100 feet tall. With the course’s natural beauty and recent $3 million renovation, golfers here have a hard time keeping their eye on the ball.
Olomana Golf Links takes golfers through 18 holes of spectacular vistas and tropical breezes amidst a breathtaking backdrop of the Ko’olau Mountain Range. The par-72 course is diverse with two distinctly different nines, an 8,500 square-foot practice green and a 42-tee double-decker driving range. It is home to the Casey Nakama Golf Development Center and a thriving junior golf program.
Located at the base of the Waianae mountain range, Makaha Valley Country Club (East) delivers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and a golfing experience that is not to be missed. The par-72 course was designed by golf course architect William F. Bell and presents golfers with a variety of doglegs and elevation changes. Tree-lined fairways and rolling greens lead to an entertaining climax on one of Hawaii's most demanding closing holes. Golfers will take in the “Makaha state of mind” as they step back in time and experience the rugged splendor of this culturally rich valley.
Some of the benefits of joining the Golf O‘ahu program include:
- Significant discount on access fees for all Pacific Links Hawai‘i O‘ahu properties for you and your immediate family - spouse and their unmarried children under 25
- Special clinics and programming for juniors, females and families
- Complimentary junior access after 4 p.m.
Monthly fees for the entire family are set at $60.00 which equals the saving of a single family foursome. For more information on joining Pacific Links Golf O‘ahu program, please contact Jennifer Fairbank at the Pacific Links Hawai‘i office at (808) 738-9203 or email email@example.com.
The company is also making strides with the PGA, hosting the second annual Pacific Links Hawai‘i Championship from September 16 - 22, 2013 at Kapolei Golf Club. The championship will feature top Champions Tour players, signature sponsor events, local promotions and live Golf Channel coverage worldwide. All proceeds from this event will go to the Pacific Links Hawai‘i Foundation – a non-profit that helps to cultivate and sustain programs aiding Hawai'i’s ecosystem, keiki, and culture. Going beyond the green, the Pacific Links Hawai‘i Foundation utilizes the sport of golf to link communities in need with business organizations, creating new opportunities for kama‘aina and shaping a stronger society for all. Last year, the Pacific Links Hawai‘i Championship raised $100,000 for non-profit organizations serving O‘ahu’s Leeward coast.
