So, mrs.hicksta is awesome! She was itching to tell me my birthday present early and she finally did today. All that said on 1/13, she's arranged for me to fly to Maui where I'll be playing Kapalua Plantation Course and will follow that up with dinner at a location TBD before I head home. This is a week after the Sentry TOC, so the course should be in pretty good shape. Needless to say I'm pumped, and as I've often done before, I plan on sharing the experience with THP! I may do a 'guess my score' contest, and if I do I'll create a separate thread with a sweet package of Aloha for a prize!

Happy Birthday to me! :D

I'm sure you'll play the Regular tees as I typically play 6,300-6,500 yard tees and the yardage of the regular was not an issue. The fairways are very firm when I was there I got a ton of roll.

Don't be deceived on #9 tee, I thought looking at the yardage book that there was a swamp at bottom of gorge (nope) so laid up. Unfortunately should have played driver as second shot (severe uphill all the way to green) was a long one and green is tough one to hit from a long way out. I really wished I could have played a second time as you learn so much the first time around that you don't see during the Tournament of Champions event.

It is a fun course and really enjoyed it! Have a blast.

I was looking forward to playing the course when I go to Maui later in the year, but it looks like it will be closed.

That's awesome man. My wife and I played there on our Honeymoon (that was a clue I married the right one), and its one of my favorite rounds I've ever played. Its absolute paradise. You'll get to hit 2 of the longest drives of your life there (just don't tell anyone they were straight down a mountain). Looking forward to following along.

Yeah, he's getting the round in just in time. The course is closing in February for Coore and Crenshaw to come in and do a renovation for the rest of the year.
