Revenue Doubles after Funding for Hawaiian Golf Academy

April 23, 2024

Oliver Oliquiano, PGA, has been a life-long golfer, with a passion for passing on the sport to the next generation. In 1999, he moved from New Jersey to Hawaii, where he worked in the mortgage industry. However, during the 2008 market crash, he decided to switch gears and follow his dream of starting the Island Pacific Golf Academy. Since then, he has been recognized as the 2020 U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Master Kids Coach, is a Certified Interscholastic Coach by NFHS, and Captains one of the largest PGA Junior League teams.

Need for Capital

Oliver’s business has continued to grow over the last sixteen years. Most recently, he was looking to update his furniture and add lights to his golf course, allowing him to extend his hours of operation from 6 pm – 9 pm. However, he did not want to tap into his line of credit or savings for these short-term projects. He had previously used revenue-based financing, so he wanted to look into that option again.

Why Forward

After further research, Oliver felt that Forward Financing had the best options for him. He appreciated the business-friendly approach, that we were quick to make a decision, and quick to fund, as ordering the equipment from mainland-USA can be a lengthy process. Once he received the light fixtures and converted his golf course to a night range, his revenue doubled nearly instantly. Forward Financing came at the exact right time for him and his business.

As Island Pacific Golf Academy expands, Oliver is excited to continue working with Forward Financing for his working capital needs!
