Kauai resorts upgrading facilities

KAUAI, Hawaii – The Makai Golf Club, part of the St. Regis Princeville Resort, is scheduled to open in January following a major renovation overseen by Robert Trent Jones Jr.

<!—->

The resort’s Lakes and Ocean nines were overhauled and renamed the Makai Golf Club. The new course was outfitted with Seashore Paspalum on the tees, fairways and greens; new tee boxes were added; bunkers were reshaped and filled with G-3 Silica sand; and the practice range was upgraded.

Elsewhere at the resort, the bunkers were reconfigured on the nine-hole Woods Course.

The Makai clubhouse is scheduled to be renovated in 2010. A temporary clubhouse will be used in the interim.

The St. Regis isn’t the only Kauai resort that has been upgrading its facilities:

• The Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club just wrapped up a $50 million renovation of its 356 guestrooms and suites and its public areas. Kukui’s Restaurant has been redesigned and a beachfront sushi bar has been added. The Kauai Marriott is located adjacent to Kauai Lagoons Golf Club, where resort guests get a reduced rate.

• Poipu Bay Golf Course plans to close April 1 to replace its turf with Seashore Paspalum. Poipu Bay, also a Jones Jr. design, is affiliated with Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa.
