This is the seventh annual, Lotte Championship in Ko Olina and will be the eighth event on the 2018 LPGA Tour and their only stop in the Hawaiian Islands. It’s a busy time in the resort, with the golfers, their support staffs, TV crews, LPGA staff, the Lotte people and of course spectators. This year’s event will run from April 11, through the 14th with a Pro-Am on Wednesday. If you would like to visit Ko Olina for the tournament, book early as our units are filling up quickly!
In preparation for the event, Ko Olina Golf Club recently completed a three-month renovation of its greenside and select fairway bunkers. The project included reshaping the bunkers and the addition of new silica sand providing optimum playing conditions for players of all abilities. The highlight of the project was the dedication and grand opening of a new Mickey Mouse bunker on the 10th hole, which is just across the street from Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa at Ko Olina.
The dedication included an appearance by Mickey Mouse himself, as well as LPGA superstar and Hawaii native Michelle Wie.
“The Mickey bunker is all about having fun playing golf and we hope this new addition will help create memorable experiences for our guests for many years to come,” said Greg Nichols, PGA, Ko Olina Golf Club’s general manager and director of golf. “It was an honor having Michelle join Mickey to celebrate the opening. This refurbishment is just one of several projects in progress that ensures Ko Olina Golf Club remains top of mind as the premier golf destination in the state of Hawaii.”
