Kapalua to Host Sentry Tournament of Champions

Kapalua is a remarkable place to live. Its gorgeous white sand beaches, upscale shopping, wide variety of restaurants, and five star resorts continue to draw in visitors and prospective homeowners who fall in love with its enticing features. But we've left one of those features off the list, because it deserves a special emphasis. Kapalua real estate provides an absolute haven for golf lovers, given that two of the most majestic golf courses in the world are located here.

More than 20 professional tournaments have been hosted by the Bay Course, which is more than any other course located on the neighbor islands. It also bears the distinction of including the only hole on Maui that golfers play over the ocean. Meanwhile, the Plantation Course has earned recognition as the best golf course in Hawaii for ten years in a row by Golfweek Magazine. It is also home to the PGA TOUR's Tournament of Champions. We're excited to report that the tour has attracted a new sponsor for the winners-only event here in Kapalua.

That new sponsor is Wisconsin-based Sentry Insurance, which has signed on for a five-year deal as the title sponsor of this exciting event. It's a decision that has bolstered the tour's commitment to beginning the new year here in Hawaii again. It's a choice that competitors are sure to appreciate, assuming they're not easily distracted by humpback whales breaching offshore. Who wouldn't want to play in a breathtaking Maui location, where the course is both challenging and incomparably beautiful?

The idea of having both the PGA Tour and the LPGA Tour events at the same location unfortunately didn't work out, according to PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, but that doesn't mean it won't happen in future years! Having both tours start here in Kapalua would be inspiring to many of us.

The Sentry Tournament of Champions will take place from January 4th to the 7th, officially marking the 20th consecutive time for the PGA Tour to start a new year on Maui. It's a tradition that we Maui residents appreciate, and is especially convenient and exciting for Kapalua residents who love the game. If you plan to be one of them but you have yet to find your ideal Kapalua real estate investment, we would be happy to assist you. You'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page if you need us. Mahalo!
