KAANAPALI - Kaanapali Golf Courses recently kicked off a renovated FootGolf layout.

It is the only facility on Maui to offer a FootGolf Course for residents and visitors alike. Nine and 18 holes of FootGolf is normally available at Kaanapali after 4 p.m. seven days a week starting at $15 to walk and an additional $15 to ride a shared golf cart.

A new monthly FootGolf pass is now available for just $79 a month for unlimited daily FootGolf.

In FootGolf, each hole is assigned a “par.” Players tee (kick) off using a soccer ball, strategically kicking it from tee to “green” until they make it in the 21-inch cup.

Kaanapali Golf Courses joined several other Billy Casper Golf-managed courses across America to launch the FootGolf program in 2015. It has quickly become a popular afternoon activity for all ages and skill levels. Kaanapali hosts an annual fall FootGolf League along with occasional weddings, reunions, birthday parties, team building events and other events on the FootGolf course.

"We love to be able to offer a unique experience to our guests here at Kaanapali. FootGolf has quickly become a new way for families and non-golfers to experience the golf facility," said PGA Director of Golf Sutee Nitakorn.

"We enjoy working with the resort's hotel sales staff and their corporate meeting planners to offer a great non-golf activity that all of their attendees can participate in. FootGolf is a fun team-building activity, and we've seen some really unique events here at Kaanapali as a result, like last year's charity event for Make-A-Wish Hawaii," Nitakorn added.

In FootGolf, each hole is assigned a "par," and players tee (kick) off using a soccer ball, strategically kicking it from tee to "green" until they make it in the 21-inch cup. Holes are cut into the rough to protect conditions of fairways and greens, and to avoid affecting everyday golfers.

The American FootGolf League provides a rulebook for players to follow. Kaanapali's nine-hole loop stretches 1,165 yards and is a par 34.

Guests are able to play unlimited FootGolf after 4 p.m. on Kaanapali's course.

To book FootGolf tee times, call (808) 661-3691 or toll-free at (866) 454-4653. To inquire about birthday parties, reunions, weddings, team building or other group events, ask for Nitakorn or e-mail snitakorn@kaanapaligolfcourses.com.
