KONA, HAWAII: The Kohanaiki clubhouse, quite possibly the finest private club community clubhouse ever to be built, was a five-year endeavor.

The golf clubs along the coast from Vero Beach to Hilton Head suffered greatly during Hurricane Matthew.

With the hurricane expected to take direct aim at his club, the general manager contacted a tree trimming company 48 hours in advance and made a deal.
Nathaniel Crosby, son of late crooner Bing Crosby, was destined to make his mark in the golf industry.
“I love the people and culture of golf. Still to this day, I daydream of one day running a golf shop and giving lessons.”
“Before competing in the Legends Tour event at French Lick Resort, I only knew NBA player Larry Bird came from the area.”
