What does it mean to be a champion? If you ask the PGA Tour or Kapalua Golf, the meaning of the word champion eludes to the professional golfers whom have won a PGA Tour event in the prior year. 

It is a great honor for not just Kapalua Golf, but the island of Maui, to host the first PGA event of the year. It is surely something that many locals anticipate, and are ecstatic to be involved in hosting.

The "Aloha Spirit" is perpetuated at this event for locals and visitors alike. Staff and volunteers of this event find the upmost pleasure in assisting attendees with inquiries, insider-knowledge, and how to optimize your  experience at the tournament. 

The region in which Kapalua Golf is situated, was birthed from very humble beginnings. Situated on the northwest shore, Kapalua Golf & Resort is situated on the most pristine acres in which Maui has to offer. 

On the slope of Mauna Kahalawai, Kapalua was once home to sprawling fields of pineapple. Maui Land & Pineapple, Inc. once operated 22,000 acres of land in which the resort is currently situated. Many people can still remember the pineapple era of Maui, and how the fields surrounded the the resort. 

Though the pineapple fields have since disappeared, Kapalua has not lost touch with the agricultural business that once surrounded the resort. It is evident in the iconic logo. 

Have you ever examined the world-renowned butterfly logo? You will find a pineapple intricately woven into the wings of the butterfly. 

Over the years the landscape has changed, resorts and houses have been erected, golf courses have come an gone, but the truly magical experience that Kapalua exemplifies has remained. 

This is why the PGA Tour, without reasonable doubt, has selected this spectacular place to be the venue to host the start of the race for the FedEx Cup.
