Members who play the Ernie Els-designed golf course at the Hoakalei Country Club in Ewa Beach, Hawaii are finally getting a clubhouse with amenities, the Honolulu-based Pacific Business News reported.
The club’s new Japanese owner plans to start construction later this year on a building that will include a restaurant and lounge, cart barn, pro shop, lockers, showers and swimming pool, Business News reported.
The 25,000-sq. ft. clubhouse is part of a multimillion-dollar upgrade to the golf course, which will remain open throughout construction, which is scheduled to be completed by late 2017, Business News reported.
In 2014, Japan’s Hirakawa Shoji Group purchased the golf course from developer Haseko Hawaii for about $25 million. The 18-hole, 248-acre course, which opened seven years ago, is located within Haseko’s master-planned community of Hoakalei in Ewa Beach. Membership in the club is by invitation only, Business News reported.
The Hoakalai Country Club is the first private golf club to be built on Oahu in about four decades, and eventually could host professional golf tournaments, Business News reported.
