C&C of Honolulu: Municipal golf courses implement Tier 4 modifications

Effective immediately, the six municipal golf courses (Ala Wai, Pali, Ted Makalena, Ewa Villages, West Loch and Kahuku) will implement modifications allowed under Tier 4 of the City’s reopening framework. Tier 4 industry standards set by the PGA/Aloha Section, approved by Governor Ige’s administration today, provides modified procedures for BACK2GOLF Hawaii under its Hawaii Golf Phase 4 (HGP4) plan.

HGP4 allows for the following changes which will be implemented at our municipal courses:

• Tee time reservations restored back to normal operating intervals

• Shotgun tournaments will allow up to 216 golfers;

• Flagsticks will be removed from the holes and modified putting cups will be replaced with normal cups;

• Bunker rakes will be replaced at bunkers for golfers to use; and

• Golf ball washers will be reopened for use.


The following requirements will remain:

• Masks shall be worn indoors at all times;

• Golf groups shall not exceed six players in a group;

• Group gatherings shall not exceed 25 people;


Advanced tee time reservations are highly encouraged. The tee time reservation phone line, (808) 296-2000, opens at 6:30 a.m. daily to book tee times at any of the six municipal golf courses up to seven days in advance. Limited stand-by/walk-in play will be allowed at all six courses.
