NETWORKING—Makani Golf Club gave AfterHours attendees the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery of their golf course this month.
Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce (KKCC) attendees enjoyed sushi pupus as they networked and enjoyed the atmosphere of the golf course. Also on the menu was liquid aloha generously donated by Kona Brewing Company. Sustainable Island Products provided the serving ware for the pupus.
Eric Shanaver from Makani Golf Club announced that Makani is “opening its property up to the residents and visitors like never before.” They will be introducing day and night activities beyond golfing to create a unique experience for everyone on the island. Shanaver also mentioned that Makani is seeking more community involvement and is open to new partners who desire new venues, activities and fundraising opportunities on Hawai‘i Island.
Makani Golf Club specializes in a world class golf experience for both residents and visitors to the Island of Hawai‘i and is currently developing partnerships to launch new excursion that are tour guided adventures, showcasing some of the most beautiful sights the island has to offer. The course opened in 1997 as Big Island Country Club. In late 2015, the course came under new ownership and rebranded to Makani Golf Club.
