The sensation of striking a dew-kissed drive into the morning Kapalua Golf Resort sun is, to the avid golfer, discovering golf nirvana. Recognized as the Best Golf Resort in Hawaii, Kapalua Golf Resort's two 18-hole championship golf courses - The Bay and The Plantation - are nothing short of divine.
The Plantation Course hosts the PGA Tour SBS Tournament of Champions each January, featuring an elite field of the previous year's PGA Tour winners. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the grand scale of the course unfurls across natural geographic formations and pineapple plantation fields.
Designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane, The Bay Course represents the first of Kapalua?s two championship golf courses. Measuring 6,600 yards long, the layout is an excellent example of resort golf at its best with gently rolling fairways and generous greens.
