Helping to bring up the next generation of golfers, Kaanapali Golf Courses has reintroduced its "Juniors Play Free" summer promotion for the months of June, July, and August for play on the newly renovated par 70, 6,400-yard Resort South Course. (The Tournament North Course is under renovation until November this year).
One junior golfer, age 7 to 17, can play for free after 10 a.m. during the summer months when accompanied by a paying adult.
More than 1,200 rounds were played last year by juniors who took advantage of
this offer to spend time with their parents on the green.
The Resort South Course supports all levels of play. The "lava," or most challenging tees, stretch to almost 6,400 yards, and the "hibiscus," or most forward tees, extends to just 4,500 yards.
