Princeville's Makai Golf Club in Hawaii announces 2012 specials

PRINCEVILLE, KAUAI, Hawaii -- The acclaimed Makai Golf Club at The St. Regis Princeville Resort is offering a variety of great options in 2012 for golfers who want to experience the course, which has earned rave reviews since its post-renovation reopening last year. Featuring two courses with 27 holes of golf, Makai Golf Club is situated in the renowned Princeville Resort community on Kauai's spectacular north shore.

Enjoy a round of golf, then relax and unwind at the neighboring St. Regis Princeville Resort with the "Nine, Wine & Dine" package. This program includes 9 holes of afternoon golf on the Makai Golf Course (play starts after 3 p.m.) and a $50 gift certificate for use at any of The St. Regis Princeville Resort's restaurants, lounges, or Halele'a Spa. The Nine, Wine & Dine package is priced at $110 per person.

For players who want to enjoy multiple rounds, Makai Golf Club offers two multi-round passes that provide substantial savings over the standard 18-hole rate ($220 at the Makai Course for prime tee times). The "Makai Golf Pass" provides three 18-hole rounds for $435 (additional rounds may be added for $145 each) to be used within a seven-day period. The "Makai Golf Week" provides six rounds of golf at $720, to be used within 30 days. These multi-round passes are nontransferable but may be used for rounds on both the 18-hole Makai and 9-hole Woods courses, as well as Makai Golf Shop merchandise. Golf World magazine named Makai Golf Club to its annual list of "America's 100 Best Golf Shops" for 2011.

The Makai Golf Club offers free golf for juniors age 15 and under at any time, any day, and juniors age 16 and 17 receive 50% off green fees. In keeping with the Troon Family Golf program, juniors can also use complimentary Callaway rental clubs while on the course. To qualify for this offer, each junior player must be accompanied by a paying adult (one free junior per one paying adult). If one adult accompanies two or three juniors, one plays free and the other young players will be offered 50% off the adult rate.

All of the above 2012 rates are subject to Hawaii state taxes and may be subject to change.

The magnificent 27-hole Makai Golf Club on Kauai's north shore was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 1971 and features two uniquely individual courses: the 18-hole Makai Course, incorporating serene lakes and stunning ocean coastline; and the 9-hole Woods Course, winding through native woodlands against a backdrop of magnificent mountain views. The courses reopened in early 2010 after an extensive 14-month renovation to the Makai Course under Jones' direction. The Makai is in immaculate condition and has received rave reviews since its renovation including rankings as one of Hawaii's top courses by both Golf Digest and Golf magazines.
