Four Season Resort Lana’I’s Manele Golf Course Offers Hawaii Golf Promotions

Golfers visiting the award-winning Four Seasons Resorts Lana’i in Hawai’i will find a wide array of offerings that hit the game’s sweet spots—technology, equipment, and entertainment.

Golfers of all ages, both new to the sport or well experienced, will find a choice of ways to enjoy the breathtaking Manele Golf Course, including instruction and amenities that bring a new spirit to the old game. This Jack Nicklaus Signature Design – the number 2-ranked resort layout in the Hawaiian Islands – boasts a magnificent routing that plays along lava outcroppings and rugged oceanside cliffs.

Looking to learn or get better? The resort’s staff of PGA-certified instructors knows how to put the “fun” into the fundamentals with a selection of traditional lessons and specialty programs. The practice range becomes party central with big helpings of cool towels, iced water, and fresh fruit to keep students laughing while they’re learning.

While many guests come to L?na’i to “unplug,” they’ll find the latest technology at the golf course ready to help them improve and shine a new light on their swings and equipment. With the help of industry-leading Trackman swing analyzers, golfers can fix their form and fine-tune their clubs during the week:

Trackman Tuesdays: Learn how to get more out of your clubhead speed, ball speed and spin, launch angle, and the other factors key to hitting longer, straighter shots.
Club Fitting Wednesdays: Get a better understanding of how a properly fit set of clubs can affect your results, then get measured for the right length, lie angle, and shaft for your game.
Wedge Fitting Thursdays: Good golfers know the importance of the short game, and this clinic explains which wedges best handle all those critical shots around the green.

In need of more specialized instruction? Sign up for a 30- or 60-minute lesson on the expansive driving range. For course management and strategy, two-hour playing lessons on the beautiful Manele Golf Course are available.

For something a little more casual but no less comprehensive, the half-day “Golf 101” program is the perfect way to introduce newbies to the game, with a primer on golf etiquette, some swing time on the range, real play on the course, and lunch at VIEWS restaurant, all for $200 per person or $350 for two.

The resort also has ways to emphasize golf’s social side while going easy on the education:

Rock ‘n Range: A little music, a well-stocked bar and pupu station, and the chance to beat some balls on the practice range with the help of the club’s easy-going PGA pros. Thursdays, 4-6 p.m.
Managers Scramble: Play nine holes with one of the resort managers. Even with complimentary rental clubs, you can probably win. Tuesdays, 3 p.m.
Ocean Nine Tour: See just how beautiful the back nine of the Manele Golf Course is without hitting a shot. Wednesdays and Fridays, 5 p.m., advance sign-up required.
Sunset Nine: Play a quick nine and enjoy a savory cocktail while you play or afterward watching the sun go down from VIEWS restaurant. Everyday after 3 p.m., $175 a person.
Juniors Play Free: We want to help grow the game so kids 17 and under get a complimentary green fee after 12 noon when they play with a paid adult. The rental clubs are free, too.

Play a little golf, play a lot, don’t play at all. There’s much more to do at Four Seasons Resort L?na’i, which features 217 guestrooms, a choice of dining venues—including ONE FORTY, NOBU LANA’I, Malibu Farm, and VIEWS at Manele Golf Course—spa and wellness offerings, luxury retail boutiques, botanical gardens, and an expansive pool experience. And just minutes away, guests can enjoy upcountry horseback rides and UTV tours, hiking, biking, snorkeling, sailing, native Hawaiian cultural experiences, and much, much more.

For more information, or to make a reservation, contact Four Seasons at 1-800-321-4666, visit your travel professional, fourseasons.com/lanai, or join our online communities at Facebook @FourSeasonsResortsLanai, Twitter @fslanai and instagram @fslanai.

Reynolds Lake Oconee Instructors Team Up With TaylorMade Tech Staff

Integrating superior equipment technology with innovative golf instruction, The Reynolds Kingdom of Golf, presented by TaylorMade, has been transformed into the premier full-game improvement experience in golf and will now be operated by Reynolds Lake Oconee.

Reynolds has continued their exclusive partnership with TaylorMade as the presenting sponsor of the Kingdom of Golf. With this sponsorship, all guests will continue to have access to the TaylorMade MATT-T system and instant gratification through the building of clubs in the onsite TaylorMade Tour Trailer.

Furthermore, the Reynolds Golf Academy, under the direction of Top 100 instructor Charlie King, has been fully integrated into The Reynolds Kingdom of Golf to provide golfers with a total golf experience.

“Game improvement is a cornerstone of the Reynolds lifestyle,” said Mark Lammi, Vice President of Golf Operations for Reynolds Lake Oconee, which has assumed ownership and operation of The Kingdom. “By extending our long-time partnership with TaylorMade and  adding in the world class instruction of Charlie King’s team, we will have one of the most premier game-improvement centers in the country.

“Taking over the ownership and operations of these platforms means we will be able to continue to offer the existing world-class services of each business, while also allowing us to focus on our current initiatives, which include more access for our resort guests and an increase in our junior and family development programs.”

In addition to incorporating these independent businesses into the Reynolds Lake Oconee golf operations, a major expansion of the current Kingdom facility is underway. This expansion includes two fully enclosed hitting bays, three covered and heated hitting areas, TrackMan 4 launch monitors, and high-speed Ximea cameras. This is another example of the $40 million investment in ongoing renovations at Reynolds Lake Oconee.

Since opening in 2007, The Kingdom has served as the East Coast fitting center for many PGA and LPGA Tour stars.  It is the only TaylorMade venue in the country where recreational golfers can be fit for equipment in the same elite environment used by  Tour players and club professionals on staff with TaylorMade.

Located between Atlanta and Augusta, Reynolds Lake Oconee already ranked among the most exciting golf experiences in the country with six award-winning golf courses designed by legendary architects Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Rees Jones, Bob Cupp, and Jim Engh. With the launching of the Reynolds Kingdom of Golf, it is now also one of the most complete golf experiences as well.

Since MetLife’s initial investment in August 2012, five of the six golf courses have undergone substantial investment and improvements, including Plantation Course, which reopens this spring following a renovation. Additionally, a golf village was built at the National course, and dining areas in the Great Waters clubhouse were renovated. The rooms, cottages, restaurants, spa, and pools of The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee have been redecorated and refurbished.

Along with its world-class golf courses, Reynolds Lake Oconee features four marinas, the Lake Club wellness center, and an award-winning tennis center, making it a popular vacation destination.
