Wednesday, January 11, 2017
Timbers Resorts, one of the largest independent developers and operators of private boutique resorts and residence clubs, has officially completed the renovation of the award-winning Ocean Course at Hokuala.
Formerly known as the Kiele Course at Kauai Lagoons, the golf course not only has received substantial improvements, but the course’s practice facility is also receiving an expansion. Construction will start later this year to include a luxurious new clubhouse with an enhanced pro shop, lagoon-side restaurant and bar, and Tennis Garden.
Timbers Resorts has also appointed industry veteran Fran Roach as the new General Manager of the Ocean Course at Hokuala to oversee golf operations. Roach will also be leading the launch of the new clubhouse and restaurant. Roach has more than 15 years of experience as General Manager in the golf industry and 26 years as a Class “A” member of the PGA of America, and is looking forward to establishing Hokuala as one of the top resort golf experiences in the world.
“Hokuala is living up to its namesake as a new ‘rising star,’ as we have invested millions to renovate the golf club to exceptional resort conditions that match the exceptional services we already provide,” said David A. Burden, Founder & Executive Chairman of Timbers Resorts. “Between Fran’s seasoned background in exceptional course management and the new designs that are nothing short of spectacular, we are excited to share the recently upgraded course with players.”
Crucial renovations have been made to the Ocean Course, which include updates to the front nine holes featuring TifEagle grass and new bright white silica sand bunkers. Timbers Resorts have included landscape enhancements to improve the visuals of the natural beauty exuded by the Garden Isle as well as creating a new type of gameplay for players. Once renovated, the practice facility and driving range will soon accommodate a diverse offering of player improvement programs.
“Both experienced players and novices will find that the Ocean Course complements each player’s level, providing an enjoyable game for all. We are thrilled to introduce a new tier of golf in Hawaii to both travelers and the local community,” said Fran Roach, General Manager of the Ocean Course at Hokuala. “Our swift completion of these renovations of this first phase will allow visitors to look forward to the upcoming chapters for Hokuala.”
