The original owners of the property selected the plans at Taliesin West, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation's headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona
The golf course was constructed with a design from Ted Robinson, Sr. The golf course became playable before the clubhouse was completed.
To accommodate the clubhouse's needs, the design was increased in size and modified to conform to the site. Two additional levels were added to the original plan to construct a 75,000 sq. ft. clubhouse that took two years to build.
The original club opened as the Waikapu Country Club and later renamed the Grand Waikapu Country Club, but economic conditions forced the club to close in 1999.
Our current owner purchased the club in July of 2004, and transformed the property into The King Kamehameha Golf Club.
Ted Robinson, Jr. was commissioned to refresh the course design with a few changes. The golf course's original irrigation system was replaced and hybrid Bermuda grasses were planted. The clubhouse was repaired with a few additions, such as a new stairwell leading directly into the golf shop and both locker rooms were enlarged with fitness rooms.
Charter members and special guests were invited to play on May 9, 2006 followed by the official blessing and Grand Opening celebration on May 10, 2006.
