Robert Trent Jones Jnr’s first solo design remains one of his – and indeed the world’s – most visually stunning golf courses. Since undergoing an extensive $6 million renovation in 2010, Princeville Makai has soared up the global golf-course rankings, including being named among the Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses in America by Golf Digest. And it’s not hard to see why… it’s gobsmackingly gorgeous. But don’t be fooled by its incredible looks – this is a course that plays every bit as well as it presents. The Makai course winds its way around serene lakes, native woodlands and the spectacular coastline with views of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay, which can be seen from the layout’s six oceanfront holes.
Princeville Makai is a key amenity to the Princeville Resort Hawaii, located on Kauai, one of the Hawaiian Islands. Perched above legendary Hanalei Bay, Princeville Resort brings unmatched sophistication and serene luxury to one of the most remarkable destinations in the world. Unwind on sandy beaches, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and treat yourself to bespoke service. Elegant residential-style living defines Princeville’s 251 guestrooms and suites, each with sweeping views of Kauai’s spectacular North Shore.
