Tree Trimming — Construction crews have begun the trimming and removal of trees from Leilehua Golf Course. The height of the trees has been identified as a safety hazard that negatively interferes with the sight line to the flight path for the Wheeler Army Airfield’s aircraft runway.
Because of safety compliance issues, officials have determined that the trees in the sight line of the flight path must be trimmed or removed. Golfing patrons should anticipate minor disruption in play. Fairways 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 will be most impacted.
Upon start of work, and weather permitting, this project is anticipated to take four weeks to complete. For more information, contact Bob Lillie, Golf Course superintendent, at 808-656-0114.
