The golf course at the Makaha resort on Oahu, Hawaii, has been sold by its Canadian owner, Northwynd Resort Properties, and will close to undergo a renovation project in May.
Locally-based firm Hawaiian Golf Properties is the course’s new owner. “Northwynd and Hawaiian Golf Properties share a common vision for the future of the property,” said Northwynd CEO Patrick Fitzsimonds. “They have indicated their intent to renovate the course into a world class facility. In turn, we intend to upgrade the resort to complement the redeveloped golf course. We believe this alliance will allow Makaha to attain its full potential as a premier resort.”
The Makaha golf course, originally designed by Billy Bell Jr, the architect of Torrey Pines, will undergo a temporary closure for the planned renovations from 14 May. The resort’s hotel is also to undergo renovation, but is expected to remain open during the work.
