The Association is responsible for maintaining all the green spaces, including an extensive irrigation system, a water feature and more than 400 trees.

West Loch Fairways was originally one element of a master-planned residential community developed by the now defunct City and County of Honolulu Department of Housing and Community Development. The project, conceived around 1987, included two phases. Phase 1 involved the development of the 600 fee simple residential units at West Loch Estates. Phase 2 included 720 fee simple residential units of West Loch Fairways and 150 rental residential units of West Loch Elderly Village. Sixty percent of the housing was priced for what the City termed “the gap group housing market”. This group of home buyer had a family income too high to qualify for government assisted rental housing, but too low to qualify for conventional financing of market priced homes. The “gap group family income” fell in the range between 81% – 120% of Oahu’s median family income at that time. The remaining 40 % of the housing sold at market prices.
The full scope of the entire master-planned residential community also included the 197 acre 18 hole municipal West Loch Golf Couse, the 39 acre linear West Loch Shoreline Park and path and the 17 acre Asing Park developed by the City and County of Honolulu, Department of Parks and recreation. West Loch Fairways Townhomes is a 136 unit fee simple condominium and was developed and built in 1992 as affordable housing by West Beach Estates. It is situated on a 10 acre site in the center of the West Loch Fairways Association under an agreement with the City and County of Honolulu.
