Waiehu Golf Course Pro Shop co-owner Catherine Cordeiro holds a stack of petitions against Mayor Alan Arakawa’s proposal to shut down the municipal course. She said that the pro shop pays $23,000 in rent each month to the county. The mayor made the proposal to close the first municipal golf course in the Terrority of Hawaii in his State of the County address March 9. The course opened in 1930.
