Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon has been selected to manage Kapolei Golf Club, an 18-hole daily-fee club in Kapolei, Hawaii on the island of Oahu.
Troon Golf, the resort and daily-fee operations division of Troon, will manage the golf, agronomy, restaurant and club operations.
Located 35 minutes northwest of Honolulu, Kapolei features a scenic Ted Robinson-designed golf course set on 190 acres of a former sugar cane plantation.
Colourful floral gardens, waterfalls and five lakes deliver a striking contrast to the course’s lush fairways and greens. Kapolei opened for play in 1995 and has hosted the LPGA Tour’s Hawaiian Open from 1996 through 2001, and the PGA Tour Champions’ Pacific Links Championship from 2012 through 2014.
In 2019, Kapolei was named one of the Top 10 ‘Courses You Can Play in Hawaii’ by Golfweek magazine.
“Kapolei is a beautiful golf course and is a wonderful addition to the Troon Ohana,” said Alex Nakajima, Operations Leader, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “We look forward to working with the Kapolei Golf ownership group and further elevating the club’s profile and the guest experience.”
Kapolei Golf Club’s 12,000 square-foot clubhouse is a gathering place for both residents and visitors alike. Its sleek, modern design includes amenities such as a glass-walled golf shop, a full-service restaurant, private locker rooms and multiple meeting and event rooms that can accommodate groups of up to 225 guests.
Kapolei’s practice facility is one of the best on Oahu with a 30-stall, fully-lit practice range and a large practice green.
