Advertiser Staff

Tom Fazio will design the first members-only course at Kapalua Resort, Kapalua Land Company Ltd., announced.

Fazio's course will replace the resort's Village Course. The Village closure and construction of the new Mauka Course are scheduled for early next year.

"Kapalua Resort is committed to providing a memorable golf experience that offers challenging courses in beautiful surroundings," said Gary Planos, senior vice president-resort operations. "Selecting Fazio, one of the most lauded golf architects of our time, to design Kapalua Resort's new Mauka Course is another example of the resort taking an exceptional golf experience to new heights."

Fazio has designed 14 courses ranked on Golf Digest's list of America's 100 Greatest Courses. His noteworthy designs include Black Diamond Ranch, Shadow Creek and The Quarry.

The new course will join Kapalua's Bay Course and the Plantation, home of the PGA Tour's Mercedes Championships.



Ala Moana Community Tennis Association was one of 19 groups nationwide to receive Community Outreach Grants from the U.S. Tennis Association. Ala Moana received $5,000.

The program recognizes tennis organizations that demonstrate the USTA commitment to "inclusion of under-represented groups in tennis."

The grants are awarded to nonprofit groups that share the USTA "resolve for outreach and inclusion" to grow the game.
