The 18-hole golf course at south Maui’s 1,800-acre Makena Beach & Golf Resort, which is managed by the Landmark Hotels Group, closed for renovation March 31.

Work on the multimillion-dollar improvement is slated to continue through the end of this year with a reopening of the upgraded 18-hole golf course tentatively scheduled for the first quarter of 2014, according to Landmark Hotels President Sean Sweeney.

The renovation will maintain the course’s position as one of Maui’s only sea-to-mountain golfing venues, highlighting the region’s forests, natural streams and ancient rock formations.

Sweeney said the resort’s popular Cafe on the Green restaurant, which was recently ranked the No. 1 Wailea restaurant by TripAdvisor’s users and features dramatic ocean views, will remain open daily for lunch and dinner throughout the golf course renovation.
