Princeville's Makai Golf Club Named to Golf World's List of "America's 100 Best Golf Shops"

Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii (January 24, 2011) – Golf World magazine has named Makai Golf Club at The St. Regis Princeville Resort to its prestigious list of “America’s 100 Best Golf Shops.” The list is announced annually by Golf World, a Golf Digest publication, with 25 shops recognized in each of four categories--resort courses, private clubs, public courses, and off-course shops--comprising the top 100 in the nation. Makai Golf Club, located on the north shore of the island of Kauai, was one of 25 named in the Resort Course category on the newly released list. Shops were selected based on a number of criteria, including revenue per square foot and per round of golf; appearance, layout, and product displays; and successful promotions and initiatives to enhance sales in the last year.

Makai Golf Club, managed by Troon Golf, has long been considered one of Hawaii’s premier championship layouts, featuring 27 holes of golf in the spectacular Princeville Resort on Kauai’s north shore. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 1971, the course reopened in early 2010 after an extensive 14-month renovation under Jones’ direction. Makai Golf Club now features two uniquely individual courses: the 18-hole Makai Course and the 9-hole Woods Course.
