A complete remodeling of the Mauna Kea
Golf Course at the 310-room Mauna Kea Resort on Hawaii currently is
under way. The redesign is being led by Rees Jones, son of the
layout's original designer, Robert Trent Jones Sr. The greens,
tees, fairways and rough of the 18-hole, par-72 course will be
replaced with new hybrid grasses. Key features of the revamp
include: replacing the course's sand, restoring the bunkers'
original look and rebuilding all greens to USGA standards. The
layout's clubhouse and restaurant also will be renovated in time
for the fall 2008 reopening.
