Mauna Kea Resort celebrates its 50th anniversary this week. Bloomberg published a nice article about the anniversary by reviewing the resort’s storied past in this March 2015 article.
The special events and throwback price specials begin Tuesday July 21, 2015. The very first event is a tennis match using wood rackets. Wayne, one of the Seaside Tennis Club’s dedicated tennis pros and all around nice guy, told me he found a case of well preserved antique white tennis balls. And players will use them! Everyone who plays tennis this week at the Seaside Tennis Club is asked to wear all white.
Here’s the complete Mauna Kea Resort 50th Anniversary event schedule. If you can’t join any of the tennis or golf fun, at least make it to beautiful Kauna’oa beach for the 50,000 orchid blossom drop by helicopter. Let the fun begin!
