The Makai Golf Course at Princeville re-opened in January 2010 after a multi-million renovation that reconfigured the greens from two 9 hole courses into one beautiful 18 hole course. Bunkers were reshaped with new ones added, two new large practice tees and a new expanded practice putting green were created and the grass on the tees was changed to Seashore Paspalum, a drought resistant grass that is so smooth it almost looks like a carpet, a very fine one at that.
The Makai Golf Club has won many awards, including the Top 5 Great Golf Settings from National Geographic to Golf Digest’s 75 Best Golf Resorts.
The 7,223 yard par 72 Makai Course’s signature holes include the challenging Par 3 Hole 3, the tee is about 100 feet above a protected green below with a lake fronting the green. Other signature holes include 7, 13 and 18. Scenic views of towering mountains, the sight of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay and looking down at breaking surf below the cliffs will provide an overall experience you’ll never forget.
The golf club has a newly built clubhouse with large lanai where the Makai Grill is located, serving breakfast and lunch from 7 am to 4 pm daily. All the golf carts have GPS and the award-winning golf shop features clubs, clothing items and more and to make it a perfect day of golf.
