Be sure and tune into the Hyundai Tournament of Champions this weekend as PGA TOUR winners from the 2011 season “Experience Troon Golf” and Kapalua’s iconic Plantation Course in Hawaii. Nearly half the field is made up of players who grabbed their first win on TOUR last year, giving viewers who catch the action on the Golf Channel a preview of what to expect from the game’s latest up-and-comers.
The Kapalua Resort is a 22,000-acre master-planned resort community set amidst Maui’s only working pineapple plantation on the northwest coast. Kapalua Resort is nestled between the sapphire reaches of the Pacific and the emerald mountains of West Maui. The neighboring island of Moloka‘i can be seen across any of the three bays of Kapalua Resort. The resort is lined with century-old Cook pines and surrounded by a vast green sanctuary encompassing two immense nature preserves – from the top of Pu‘u Kukui Preserve, the highest peak in the West Maui Mountains, to the edge of the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the Honolua Bay Marine Life Conservation District. The resort is renowned for its two championship golf courses; a golf academy; a full-service tennis complex managed by Peter Burwash International; ten residential communities; premier hotel; condominium vacation rentals; three white sand beaches; and a myriad of restaurants and shops.
