Prince Golf Course at Princeville


5-star : simply the best - golf courses don’t get much better than this.
   Prince Golf Course at Princeville Est. 1987

Where2Golf says: 

Prince Golf Course at Princeville: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2015 for a major renovation, but as of Jan 2017 has still not re-opened. Rumour had it that after the renovation (which is still on hold), the Prince course would reopen as a private members-only facility. The renovated Princeville Makai course (see next para) has currently taken over the mantle as the "must play" course at Princeville. Check for current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: The Princeville Resort is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, the highly-ranked Prince course and the also well-rated and popular Makai course. The Prince course is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in the Hawaiian Islands, frequently regarded as THE best. The excellent tree-lined and open parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
