Located on Kauai’s stunning north shore, Makai is part of a 45 hole complex found at the St. Regis Princeville Resort. The course features some of the most dramatic oceans views and holes available on the Hawaiian islands as the course sits perched above the rocky north shore coastline delivering views of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay. The fairways and greens consist of Seashore Paspalum, a grass strain boasting superior performance in the ocean side environment whose strong blades help the ball sit up a bit.
Local Knowledge: Makai’s layout is friendlier to the high handicapper than the neighboring Prince course. If you are looking to take out the family, the 9 hole Woods course is an nice, though less dramatic, alternative.
