Makena is the South Maui course that amazes the imagination with beautiful greens and flowers, wildlife and breath-taking views. It is recognized as one of the most desirable golf courses in the world to play. The view in this painting is taken from a position of the clubhouse restaurant, overlooking the bougainvillea that frames the courtyard. One looks out over the tenth hole and continues on to see the island of Koolawe. The white egret follows the trails of the freshly mowed greens, and the Short Eared Owl, indigenous to this area, can be seen soaring from time to time.
