New course grass installation complete
The Waiehu Municipal Golf Course will open for play Friday with new SeaStar Seashore Paspalum grass on the front nine, the county Parks and Recreation Department announced.
The back nine regrassing was completed about a year ago. The SeaStar Seashore Paspalum salt-tolerant grass is a good fit for the more than 80-year old shoreline golf course, the department said.
Currently, all 18 holes are open with the front nine limited to temporary greens until Monday. From then until Friday, golf course staff will be reducing play on the front nine to finish the necessary maintenance and ready the course for reopening.
