Troon has been selected to manage King Kamehameha Golf Club in Maui, Hawaii. Known as Maui’s only private 18-hole golf course, King Kamehameha Golf Club is a historic property featuring bi-coastal ocean views of both the north and south shores of the island and a historic clubhouse designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Nestled in the foothills of the West Maui Mountains, the golf club was named to honour the greatest king in the history of the Hawaiian Islands whose legacy includes unifying the islands into a peaceful and prosperous kingdom. Originally designed by Ted Robinson Sr. in 1991 and refreshed in 2005 by Ted Robinson, Jr., the course works in partnership with nature to create a pure golf experience with no surrounding homes or nearby traffic.
“King Kamehameha Golf Club is a special club in a unique and desirable destination,” said Mike Ryan, senior vice president, Troon Golf Operations. “We are honoured to have been selected by them and are confident that our management practices will contribute positively to the experience of the members and guests.”
In addition to King Kamehameha’s golf facility, the club also features elegant and casual dining venues and outdoor terraces that feature the mastery of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design. Honouring the local island culture is the club’s extensive art collection, creating a cultural sense of place for members and their guests. The club’s expansive golf shop features an equipment alcove and a seating area overlooking the scenic 18th hole, blending the intimacy of a member’s club with the variety and selection of a resort boutique.
“Troon’s impressive reputation is highly respected in the industry and we are confident their involvement will improve the overall experience at King Kamehameha,” stated Kenny Kanzaki, owner’s representative, King Kamehameha Golf Club. “Combining the outstanding amenities and unique offerings our club has to offer with the professional management and member programs of Troon, makes us excited about the opportunities that lay ahead.”
