Ginella's Journey: Golfing with Chef Roy Yamaguchi in Ka'anapali
Built on 300 acres of
land once home to Hawaiian royalty, Ka’anapali Golf Courses present golfers
with pristine conditions and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and West Maui
Opened in 1962 and
designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the par-71, 6,700-yard Royal Ka’anapali
Course features wide fairways and undulating greens which make it both
distinctive and demanding. The
tournament-tested layout hosted the Champions Tour Ka’anapali Classic for 14
years, Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, the Canada Cup and LPGA Kemper Open, welcoming
Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Greg Norman, Fred Couples, Jan
Stephenson, Betsy King and other legends.
Complementing the Royal Ka’anapali Course is
the modernized Ka’anapali Kai Course which hosted Golf Channel’s “Big Break Ka’anapali.”
Extensively renovated in 2005, the 6,400-yard, par-70 layout boasts an array of
strategically placed bunkers, contoured fairways and resurfaced greens.
