Prince Golf Course at Princeville

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1987

Prince Golf Course at Princeville: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2015 for a major renovation, but as of Jan 2020 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.
