O'ahu military golf courses re-open

Advertiser Staff

All O'ahu military golf courses, closed following Tuesday's terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., have been re-opened.

Golfers going to Kane'ohe Klipper need a military ID to get on the base. Those going to Hickam's Mamala Bay and Par-3 courses need clearance, as usual, to get through the gate.

Golfers heading to those courses, the Army's Kalakaua and Nagorski (Fort Shafter) courses, and Barbers Point, should anticipate a longer wait to get through the gate. Navy-Marine and Leilehua are not located on bases.


• Haig goes international: Three-time All-American Kaya Haig, a 1997 Punahou graduate from Honolulu, was invited to participate in the Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship.

The regatta, one of the premier women's events, will be held in Annapolis, Md., Sept. 22-28.

Haig helped Boston University to a third-place finish at the 2001 Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association North American Women's Dinghy Championship in May. She has since graduated.

"Historically, the regatta has attracted not only the top women's talent in the world, but also aspiring sailors just entering the realm of international competition," U.S. Sailing representative Denise MacGillivray said in a press release. "Kaya will fit right in."
