Master Planning

Located on the east side of the big island of Hawaii, the Hilo Municipal Golf Course now boasts new facilities and landscaping following an extensive renovation. The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation’s project for improving the Hilo Municipal Golf Course includes replacing the clubhouse facility, waterlines and both of the course restrooms, reconstructing four greens, and performing various maintenance and repair work throughout the site. Another key component involves bringing the Hilo Municipal Golf Course and adjacent driving range into full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The $12.8 million project has additional design and construction work which included the construction of a new clubhouse building, a new cart storage building and a new maintenance shed.  Other upgrades include a new chipping area, new comfort station, repaving portions of the parking lot as well as repairs and alterations to existing buildings. The 18-hole course, which is located at 340 Haihai St. and owned by the county, encompasses 6,325 yards. The project scope included a new clubhouse, restaurant, putting greens, restrooms, cart course bridges, rain shelters and accessible walkways at the driving range.
