Princeville Makai Golf Course, Mr. Robert Trent Jones Jr. first ever solo design, is truly one of the world's most stunning golf and resort locations! Since undergoing an extensive $6 million renovation by Robert Trent Jones Jr. (completed in early 2010) the Makai Course has soared to the top of almost all of golf's respected rankings imaginable. Including being ranked amongst the Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses in America, by Golf Digest, within the Top 3 Best Courses You Can Play in Hawaii by GolfWeek and being named to the list of America's "Top 5 Great Golf Settings" in the world by National Geographic Traveler.
With our immaculate course conditions and six ocean front holes, and amazing "Aloha Spirit" it is impossible for any other golf course on the Hawaiian islands to rival Princeville Makai's true Hawaiian Golf Adventure! In addition to golf, Princeville Makai Golf Club is also home to Sunset Golf Cart Tours, the Mauka Disc Golf Course, Sunrise Yoga, a popular Tennis facility and many jaw dropping sites for banquets and special celebrations.

Hawaii is so much more than just the 50th state. Each island has its own pace, culture, history and sense of place. In this Journey, Matt Ginella and the Fire Pit Collective explore Kaua'i to understand the "Garden Island's" past and learn about what's being done to preserve its future. Ginella visits five of Kaua'i's golf courses and along the way samples local eateries, beaches and farms. He gets an education about the native spirits and the focus on sustainability while taking in the incredible scenery. Come as a guest, learn to respect the locals and the land, and you will leave as a member of the "ohana"—which, in Hawaiian, means family.
