"...Traces the development of the club through the Great Depression, WWII and all the changes in the postwar years that revamped the Hawaiian society but it also traces the history of Waialae lands and their uses back to 1795 when King Kamehameha I landed there in his conquest of Oahu.... traces the history of the buildings and occupants of this Waialae area back to a Captain Ross who first set up a homestead there in the 1850s, and it also traces the origin of the golf course back to the early 1920s when Castle & Cooke, Matson, and the Territorial Hotel Co decided that a first-class golf course was necessary to attract tourists to Hawaii. It also deals with all the people who have been involved and the games they have played going back to the first Hawaiian Open that 'Wild Bill' Mehlhorn won in 1928..... Since Waialae's development down through the decades has been in many ways the result of social, economic and political forces outside the club, the reader will get a pretty good understanding of developments in Hawaii during the last half century. Golfers should find the Appendices particularly interesting because they contain a history of golf in Hawaii going back to the 1890s, a history of all the golf courses that have ever been built in Hawaii, and a history of local amateur and professional golf associations."
