Open House for concept of new clubhouse at Waiehu Golf Course
set for Saturday at Richard “Pablo” Caldito Park

 

A preliminary concept for a new clubhouse at Waiehu Golf Course will be displayed during an outdoor “pop-up” community event on Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Richard “Pablo” Caldito Park, according to the County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR).

The event will be from 9 a.m. to noon at the park located at the corner of Kahekili Highway and Halewaiu Street in Waihee-Waiehu. People may drop-in at any time during the event.

The concept was also displayed in December 2018 at the Velma Santos Community Center.

During the event, DPR will provide concept sketches on a series of panels and residents can offer comments and speak directly to the project’s design team and county staff.

Waiehu Golf Course, the county’s only municipal golf course, is more than 87 years old. Its clubhouse was built in 1962 and has not been significantly upgraded. In Fiscal Year 2017, DPR identified the development of a new clubhouse as a priority and received planning and design funding from the Maui County Council.

“We are committed to providing a clubhouse that serves the golfing community and can also be used for community events,” DPR Director Karla Peters said. “The site is very special so we also want to provide information about the rich cultural history of the surrounding area.”

The concept design plan is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019. The department is working with a consultant team headed by Bow Engineering Inc. and includes Shimokawa + Nakamura (architecture), Munekiyo Hiraga (public outreach), GMK Consulting, LLC (financial analysis), Austin, Tsutsumi & Associates Inc. (civil engineering), and J. Uno & Associates (cost estimating).
