On Saturday, July 4 in the monthly Ace for Kukui O Molokai Golf Club, long time and legendary Molokai golfer Ronald “Naka” Nakagawa got his fifth all-time hole in one on the first hole at iconic Ironwood Hills Golf Course. His 8-iron shot on the 125 yard Par 3 hole was beautifully hit at the pin and rolled in for an ace. It was his second hole in one of the year! He got his fourth all time ace on Jan. 29 on the same hole. Naka is on fire in 2020 at Ironwoods!

The Hui O Kukui held its July Ace Tournament on the 4th of July at Ironwood Hills GC and Henrietta Holi-Helm is the July Ace winner. Etta shot 41-42 for a gross total of 83 and a net 65 with her 18 handicap. Congratulations Etta!
