Hawaii’s Princeville resort has closed its Prince course for five months to undergo a renovation programme. The resort recently completed a similar renovation on its Makai course.
Designed by the firm of Robert Trent Jones II, the Prince course originally opened in 1990, and is ranked as the top course in the state by Golf Digest. A complete renovation of the course’s bunkers began last September 2010, and the Prince has now closed to allow completion of the project along with other planned upgrades to the world-renowned course. Reopening is planned for summer 2011.
“We are very excited about this refurbishment,” said Steve Murphy, the course’s director of golf. “We are proud of the Prince's top ranking over the years, and these improvements will help us maintain the overall quality of the course and the first class guest experience.”
