Golf’s New Year: Kapalua Plantation Course
The PGA’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions tees off today at the Plantation Course in Kapalua. This event is nationally televised to cold viewers in snow-covered regions across the US. This annual tournament of champions is certainly is a boost for Maui visitor industry. As you can image, there is also a real positive impact on our local real estate market.
This is the strongest field at Kapalua in 10 years, with Jordan Spieth and Jason Day at Nos. 1 and 2 in the world, along with Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, British Open champion Zach Johnson and defending champion Patrick Reed among the 32-man field of PGA Tour winners from the previous year.
My golfing buddies and I at the Kapalua Bay Course
If you happen to be on Maui this week, you should look into getting tickets for this event. The weather is supposed to be pretty nice all weekend. I’m not the best golfer in the world, but it’s one of my favorite things to do these days. Last time I played Plantation in November, I almost had a hole in one on the par 3 (hole #11) which is one of the signature holes on the course. At least I sunk the tap in birdie J. This hole is definitely going to be playing tuff on Sunday if the wind kicks up.
Even though our primary focus is Wailea Real Estate, we get a lot of phone calls this time of year about available properties in Kapalua. A quick look at single family home sales in Kapalua for the first 6 months of 2015 show 8/10 sales through November came in the first 6 months of the year. In 2014, 5/7 sales were recorded in the first 6 months of the year.
