Join us for our annual Island Eyes Gold outing on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022.

Wailea's Emerald is frequently lauded for being easy on the eyes and fascinatingly fun. This course was masterfully designed by Robert Trent Jones II to be fun for every player. The double green on #10 and #17 is worth taking an extra moment.

The outing will begin at noon with a shotgun start. The fee includes green fees, a shared cart equipped with GPS, and a cooler stocked with two bottles of water. In addition, please be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes early (preferably 60 minues) as range balls and use of the practice facility to warm up is also included. There will be cart signs with your names and starting hole; tournament scorecards, rules sheets, on-course contests and a personalized engraved bag tag for each golfer.
