Tim­bers Re­sorts, one of the largest in­de­pen­dent de­vel­op­ers and op­er­a­tors of pri­vate bou­tique re­sorts and res­i­dence clubs, has com­pleted the ren­o­va­tion of the renowned Ocean Course at Hokuala, now open to the pub­lic. In ad­di­tion to the sub­stan­tial im­prove­ments to the golf course, for­merly known as the Kiele Course at Kauai La­goons, work has also be­gun on the course’s ex­panded prac­tice fa­cil­ity. Construction is set to be­gin later this year on a lux­u­ri­ous new club­house fea­tur­ing an en­hanced pro shop, la­goon-side restau­rant and bar, and Ten­nis Gar­den.

In ad­di­tion to the multi-mil­lion dollar in­vest­ment in the golf ex­pe­ri­ence, Tim­bers has ap­pointed in­dus­try vet­eran Fran Roach as the new Gen­eral Man­ager of the Ocean Course at Hokuala to over­see golf op­er­a­tions, as well as to lead the launch of the new club­house and restau­rant. With more than 15 years of ex­pe­ri­ence as a Gen­eral Man­ager in the golf in­dus­try and 26 years as a Class “A” mem­ber of the PGA of Amer­ica, Roach will es­tab­lish Hokuala as one of the top re­sort golf ex­pe­ri­ences in the world.

“Hokuala is liv­ing up to its name­sake as a new ‘ris­ing star,’ as we have in­vested mil­lions to ren­o­vate the golf club to ex­cep­tional re­sort con­di­tions that match the ex­cep­tional ser­vices we al­ready pro­vide,” said David A. Bur­den, Founder & Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of Tim­bers Re­sorts. “Be­tween Fran’s sea­soned back­ground in ex­cep­tional course man­age­ment and the new de­signs that are noth­ing short of spec­tac­u­lar, we are ex­cited to share the re­cently up­graded course with play­ers.”

The newly ren­o­vated front nine holes of the golf course com­plete those pre­vi­ously made to the Ocean Course back nine, in­clud­ing new world-class putting sur­faces with TifEa­gle grass and new bright white sil­ica sand bunkers. Land­scape en­hance­ments not only im­prove the vis­ual aes­thet­ics of the course by fea­tur­ing the ex­cep­tional nat­u­ral beauty of the Gar­den Isle, but also pro­vide new in­no­va­tive de­signs for play­ers. The ex­panded and im­proved driv­ing range and prac­tice fa­cil­ity will soon ac­com­mo­date a di­verse of­fer­ing of player im­prove­ment pro­grams.

“Both ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers and novices will find that the Ocean Course com­ple­ments each player’s level, pro­vid­ing an en­joy­able game for all. We are thrilled to in­tro­duce a new tier of golf in Hawaii to both trav­el­ers and the lo­cal com­mu­nity,” said Fran Roach, Gen­eral Man­ager of the Ocean Course at Hokuala. “Our swift com­ple­tion of th­ese ren­o­va­tions of this first phase will al­low vis­i­tors to look for­ward to the up­com­ing chap­ters for Hokuala.”

Hokuala is the new­est re­sort in the Tim­bers port­fo­lio that also in­cludes the No. 1 re­sort in Europe, Castello di Ca­sole, ranked by Travel + Leisure. Own­ers in Tim­bers Kaua’i - Ocean Club & Res­i­dences, the first res­i­den­tial of­fer­ing within Hokuala, will garner mem­ber­ship in the renowned Tim­bers Col­lec­tion, of­fer­ing a host of perks and priv­i­leges from some of the most rec­og­nized travel and life­style part­ners in the world, with the op­por­tu­nity to trade va­ca­tion time with other own­ers and ex­pe­ri­ence des­ti­na­tions through­out the en­tire port­fo­lio.

Hokuala – A Tim­bers Re­sort is a 450acre ocean­front re­sort com­mu­nity that will in­clude a pri­vate res­i­dence club, lux­ury whole own­er­ship res­i­dences, cus­tom golf course home sites, a re­tail shop­ping vil­lage and a bou­tique ho­tel fea­tur­ing a des­ti­na­tion spa, mul­ti­ple din­ing op­tions, ex­ten­sive pools and mul­ti­ple wed­ding venues. The Hokuala re­sort ex­pe­ri­ence re­volves around its idyl­lic set­ting with golf, ten­nis, hik­ing and bik­ing trails, beach ac­tiv­i­ties, and ocean and moun­tain ad­ven­tures.
