Advertiser Staff

Mike Moynahan, owner of Kama'aina Clubmakers, has been named the 2005 PCS Regional Clubmaker of the Year by the Professional Clubmakers Society.

It was the second honor of the year for Moynahan, who was recently awarded the 2004-2005 Hawai'i Clubmaker of the Year by the Golf Clubmakers Association.

Moynahan, who was honored at a ceremony at Louisville, Ky., for his PCS award, operates his business on Maui.

Ko Olina Golf club, which recently started a nine-hole women's golf club, will be a local host for 2005 Women's Golf Week, June 5 to 11. The week is presented by Golf for Women magazine and benefits the V Foundation for cancer research to fund women's cancer initiatives.

More than 300 courses are participating nationally.

Women can play a nine-hole round for $25 any day of that week, after 3 p.m. On June 8, the Ko Olina Golf Academy will hold a golf clinic from 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. That will be followed by a wine tasting at Roy's Ko Olina Restaurant from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m.

Registration is required. Call the golf shop at 676-5300.

The Ladies Only 9-Hole Golf Club plays every Wednesday through July 6. Registration is at 3 p.m., followed by a Tip of the Day at 3:15 p.m. on the driving range and beginners golf clinic from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m.

The first tee time is 3:30 p.m., with players responsible for booking their times weekly. There is a $20 initiation fee, which includes a Ko Olina shirt and sleeve of balls. Cost for the green fee or clinic is $25.

The club is open to women 18 and older of all abilities. It is limited to the first 20 to sign up each week.
