HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Financial troubles are leading the state to take back lands leased to the Olomana Golf Course.

They Department of Land and Natural Resources filed paperwork to end its agreement with the golf course operators.

The state says Olomana Golf Links owes about $115,000 for using the course since July 2017, but it has been struggling to pay its bills.

Payment to vendors and employees have also reportedly become backlogged.

The state granted the golf course a 65-year lease for the 130-acre lot, which was supposed to expire in May 2032.

The Board of Land and Natural Resources plans to take up a request on Friday.
