Kukuiula Makes the List

27 Dec Kukuiula Makes the List

The world loves rankings, Top 10 lists, and Best of the Year pronouncements – and never more so than during the holidays. Of course, the best place to be on anyone’s list is the very top, so we were pleased to score an ace on Golf Magazine’s ‘Best Of’ list, winning “Best New Private Course of the Year.

Links Magazine has also just highlighted Kukui‘ula in its Best New Courses of 2011. “Set atop Pacific bluffs, the site is one of the most scenic Weiskopf has ever had,” the magazine wrote. “The lushly landscaped holes offer round-pausing ocean views, along with wide fairways to make the course more playable in the persistent trade winds.”

Don Chapman of HiLuxury magazine played recently, and was also thoroughly smitten. The veteran of 91 of 93 Hawaiian courses described the experience “like seeing your first Green Flash, tasting your first bite of an entirely new and wonderful cuisine, riding your first motorcycle or falling in love for the very first time,” he says in the December/January issue of the magazine. “Golf at Kukui‘ula is that good – it’s an altogether new and different golf experience.”
