Tournament unveils new food options featuring local island restaurants and food trucks
Food experience areas include Taste of Maui, Honolua Lookout and FanTime on Nine
Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii – Fans should come hungry when the Sentry Tournament of Champions returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua from January 1 – 5, 2020. Tournament officials today announced new food options throughout the course featuring local favorites from island restaurants and food trucks.
“The food on this island is incredible, and it can be so daunting to attempt to try everything,” said Alex Urban, executive director of the Sentry Tournament of Champions. “Hopefully through the Taste of Maui and by bringing some top food trucks to the Sentry Tournament of Champions, we give people the chance to taste all the great restaurants Maui has to offer.”
The Taste of Maui will feature new food partners Cool Cat Café, Joey’s Kitchen and Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar. Located between the first fairway and 18th green, Taste of Maui will give fans plenty of options from Cool Cat Café’s famous cheeseburgers to Sansei Seafood Restaurant’s Char Sui Ramen and Joey’s Kitchen’s famous garlic chicken bowl. Also located by the 18th green is local favorite Big Wave Shave Ice offering natural and traditional Hawaiian Shave Ice.
Located steps from the Main Entrance and near the second green, FanTime on Nine will host two more popular local food trucks, Outrigger Pizza Company and Sea Salt. Fans can enjoy many delicious options ranging from white cheddar mushroom pizza and Lilikoi pork pizza to fresh catch sandwiches, tomato grilled cheese sandwiches and salads.
While fans are out exploring the best views in golf on The Plantation Course, they can visit the Honolua Lookout by the 11th tee box. Adjacent to the picturesque hole is Three’s Catering food truck where fans can choose from a variety of food options, including fish tacos and panko-crusted ahi tuna rolls.
Fans will also have something to help them celebrate seeing the winners from the 2019 calendar, the signature Grey Goose cocktail, named “Mea Lanakila” translated in Hawaiian as “Champion.” Hand crafted to deliver on Maui’s specific drink profile, the Mea Lanakila blends fresh juices with signature Grey Goose vodka for a light and refreshing drink. A champion cocktail deserves to be served in an equally grand cup, and the signature cocktail will be served in style in a custom and limited edition 10 oz. commemorative YETI tumbler featuring the Sentry Tournament of Champions and Grey Goose logos.
