    Kapolei GC

    Course Par Value: 72 • Course Yardage: 7001
    Opened in 1995, the Kapolei Golf Club sits on 191 acres of former sugar cane lands located at the southern base of the Waianae Mountains. Architect Ted Robinson, known for his creative use of water, moved massive amounts of dirt to create lakes and provide elevation and contouring for the course. In addition to hosting the inaugural Pacific Links Hawaii Championship, Kapolei Golf Club was also the host site of the LPGA Hawaiian Ladies Open from 1996-2001. Past champions include LPGA Hall of Fame inductee Annika Sorenstam and 6-time Major Championship winner Betsy King.
