Princeville Makai Golf Club - Kauai, HI

Princeville Makai Golf Club opened in 1971 as the first solo effort of Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and was completely renovated in 2009, introducing spectacular new Seashore Paspalum turf grass on all fairways and greens. Incorporating the original Lakes and Ocean nines, the new Princeville Makai Course features surreal vistas of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay, including the signature par-3, 7th hole that offers a 213-yard shot over scenic cliffs onto a green surrounded by brilliant white bunkers.

“The Makai Course is a bucket-lister, a first-class experience from top to bottom, and the Par 3, 7th is honestly one of the most beautiful golf holes in the world.”

Princeville Makai Golf Club is located adjacent to the Princeville Resort, which is home to the renowned Halelea Spa, an infinity pool overlooking Hanalei Bay and The Kauai Grill by Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
