The Tournament of Champions

The Plantation Course is famous for hosting The Tournament of Champions, which is the opening tournament each year for the PGA season. Founded in 1953, the field is restricted to golfers who won a tournament on the tour during the previous year. With a select playing field, warm Maui weather, and low crowd numbers, The Tournament of Champions is a popular event- both for TV audiences world wide, the for the small galleries that gather each year, and the players and their families. 

Former winners include: Geoff Ogilvy, Stuart Appleby, Sergio Garcia, Ernie Els & Tiger Woods


Watch The Tournament of Champions!

And for any golfing trips to Maui consideration should be given to a visit to Lana'i to play Lana'i Golf, Manele which most of our clients rate as the highlight of the tour.

You can stay a few days at the glorious Four Seasons hotel on Lanai, or just take a day trip from Maui to play golf!
