Golf: Brian Paul was walking off the 14th green at Kukui`ula when he spotted the tail. Paul, the head golf pro at this new Tom Weiskopf-designed course on Kauai, is accustomed to seeing humpback whales in the adjacent Kukui`ula bay, but this one was different. 'It started slapping its tail against the water over and over again,' he recalls. One of the club members Paul was playing with, a resident of Hawaii for 30 years, said he had seen the phenomenon only once before- and that it signaled the whale was giving birth. 'We counted 20 slaps, and then it stopped,' Paul says. 'Sure enough, a few moments later this miniature spout, like something from a garden hose, comes out of the water, and a life was born.'
Paul's perch between the 14th and 15th holes was an ideal vantage for witnessing the spectacle. But at Kukui`ula- where every hole offers ocean views- the splendors of the Garden Island are always on display. Opened in June, the course is part of the Kukui`ula private resort community, a 1,010-acre development on a mountainous stretch just five minutes west of Poipu Beach. A former sugar plantation, the property is tactfully being transformed into an exclusive retreat with plantation-style cottages (from $2.2 million to $3.6 million) and custom homesites (from $800,000 to about $4 million). The Owner of PK's 402 is a Realtor who will refund the cost of your accommodations in PK's 402 (at successful close of escrow) if buy property through her as a Buyer's Agent.
Ski: On the Big Island of Hawaii, Mauna Kea (Hawaiian for 'white mountain') is a 13,796' (4205 meter) volcanic mountain whose summit sometimes gets a skiable/boardable mantle of snow. There are no lifts, no grooming, no resort, but a road goes to the summit to serve the dozen or so world class observatories located at the summit. You must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get to the summit, which serves as your 'lift.' Basically, skiers take turns being the driver, who picks up the other skiers at the bottom of the runs and ferries them up to the summit. Conditions at the top are extremely variable. Winter temperatures range from 25 to 40 degrees F (-4 to 4 C), but wind chill and the high altitude can make it seem much colder. Between April and November the weather is milder, with daytime temperatures varying from 30 to 60 degrees F (0 to 15 C).
