Since 1999 Kapalua has hosted the season opening Tournament of Champions, where all winners from the past PGA season are invited to play. Its and exclusive field and its a great course to get the year started.
Winners at Kapalua include David Duval, Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, and Zach Johnson. Kapalua features incredible elevation changes of over 500 feet, going from high in the mountains to near sea level. The course plays to a 7,411 par 73, and features constant trade winds which can blow some drives over 400 yards, and stop others dead in their tracks. The 663 yard finishing hole is one of the signature holes in all of golf. If you pick a day when the reverse Kona winds are blowing, you will find an altogether different and challenging course. Try it out, today.
