|Golf On Maui
|With 18 fabulous courses, Maui and Lana'i are premier locations for golfers of every ability.
And, each course has it's own special qualities
The pristine courses of the Wailua region in South Maui are overly grand, feature man-made
lakes and are manicured to perfection but lack the wild and natural edge that feature at the
Makena courses a little further to the south. Inland at the new Dunes at Maui Lani is a links
course influenced by the classical Scottish links courses.
Kapalua Plantation Course, in the north of West Maui, is one of three championship courses
at Kapalua, the 7,263-yard Plantation Course, designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, is
the venue for the first PGA Tour of the season. To the south, in the popular resort location of
Kaanapali, are two forgiving courses ideal for holiday golf. The south course is short and
appreciably easy as far as Hawaiian golf courses are rated, although many holes are
overlooked from the road and can be distracting. The most challenging aspect of the north
course are its mischievous two tiered greens.
The Waiehu Municipal course on the north coast offers excellent value (although busy on
weekends and public holidays) and a game of golf that is not sole-destroying for beginners.
One of the unique courses on Maui is at Pukalani in central Maui. At 1,200 feet high, this is the
coolest golf course on Maui with refreshing winds and stunning views of the West Maui
mountains. The only drawback of this course is being susceptible to afternoon rains and cloud.
Two unique courses can be found on the neighbouring island of Lanai. The Experience at
Koele rises high into the hills with undulating lies, great views of the surrounding islands and a
hole that drops 100-feet from tee to green. The challenge at Manele features undulations,
slopes and blind shots.
