Prince Golf Course at Princeville at Hanalei
The Prince Golf Course at Princeville at Hanalei is a magnificent Hawaii golf layout set amid 390 acres of fascinating tableland above Kauai's north shoreline. Robert Trent Jones Jr. harnessed all of the natural elements provided him: deep ravines, tropical jungle, streams, even a waterfall.
Not only is this Kauai golf course something to behold, the entire facility is impressive, including a substantial practice area and a 60,000-square-foot clubhouse. The signature seventh hole is a par-3 overlooking the surf breaking on the reef off Anini Beach, 165-feet below.
The back nine starts with the highly creative 10th hole known as 'Burma Road.' This par-5 turns more than 90 degrees on its dogleg left, with a deep jungle ravine running along its entire left side and protecting the green short and left. Big hitters can have a go at the green on the second shot assuming they hit a long, well-placed tee shot to the left side of the fairway.
The par-4 at No. 12 'Eagle's Nest' has its tees some 100 feet above a narrow fairway guarded by jungle on both sides. The smallish green sits in a tight corner of ferns and foliage, surrounded by Anini Stream on three sides. The 13th hole requires an exacting tee shot, then a carry over Anini, which crosses the fairway before scooting up the right side and around the right rear of the green, where a waterfall stands.
