Palmer Course - Kahuku Oahu Hawaii

RSS

2007 SBS OpenThe LPGA Tour returns to the island of Oahu for the SBS Open at Turtle Bay Resorts Palmer Course in Kahuku, Hawaii, where GCSAA Golf Course Superintendent Michael Honma has the Palmer Course prepped to become the first golf course to host a professional golf event on Seashore paspalum turfgrass, which stands the tests of turfgrass management in a saltwater climate.
 
The course was built upon a marsh known as the Punahoolapa Marsh, which also serves as an endangered species bird sanctuary. The wetland refuge was established in 1976 and is primarily devoted to the recovery of Hawaii's four endemic waterbirds; Hawaiian stilit, Hawaiian moorher, Hawaiian coot and the Hawaiian duck.
