Princeville Makai Course
The highly ranked Makai Golf Course, located in beautiful Princeville on the island of Kauai, is an 18 hole layout overlooking Hanalei Bay. After undergoing a $6,000,000 renovation under the supervision of Robert Trent Jones Jr. (completed in early 2010), the Makai Course has been ranked among the top 100 public golf courses in the United States. In addition to the Makai course, there is also a 9 hole Woods Course, that encourages more family and local play.
The Makai Golf Course was the first design of Robert Trent Jones, Jr. on Kauai where he later designed 4 others. With the excellent layout and 5 ocean-facing holes, it offers 5 sets of tees for varying levels of ability. With these design upgrades, the Makai course “now has what it takes to throw its name into the hat of top plays in Hawaii” according to Brandon Tucker, Managing Editor for Golf Advisor.
Living in Princeville is a dream come true for golf enthusiasts. Many homes and condos back right onto the golf course and some even have ocean views. Some owners live here year round and others come for vacation. Some even buy a lot and build their dream home! There is still vacant land available in Princeville.
Since Princeville is a VDA (Vacation Destination Area), most houses and condos can be rented out as vacation rentals allowing the owners to own a home in paradise and generate income from their property when they aren’t on island.
Many members of our team at Kauai Real Estate Group live here and love these 9000 acres that make up Princeville. What’s not to love? This beautiful slice (no golf pun intended) of paradise is here waiting for you. We’re here to help you find the home you’ve been dreaming of.
