Great course! Beautiful views, good pace. My husband and I rented clubs from here to play Maui Nui. The clubs were vintage and badly mismatched, This was disappointing. If renting clubs to play this course, use a rental delivery service, No complaints on course just their rental equipment.

The range is a.real kick very unique. The course is a very good value especially for Maui. Greens just ok. No marshalls to control extremely slow play could've eaily been remedied. Be prepared for a slow round. We had a 3 hr back 9. Too bad. Fun course.

Very good Bermuda greens, quite fast, but that probably contributed to slow pace of play, lots of three putts out there. A nice user-friendly course with great Maui views. Two totally blind driving holes also slow things down, they could use the GPS software that shows where the carts ahead are

We were totally drenched by an early rain storm after 6 holes of play. Waited an hour, rain stopped, played two more holes and were drenched by an even larger storm. Packed up and went home to dry out. Normally this course is one of the driest. Our ratings above were affected by heavy rains.

One of the best values for golf on Maui. I like playing this course but you can run into trouble if you stray off the fairway. Don't be adverse to playing with another couple. We have had fun with every twosome we have been paired with.

Nicely greeted at the pro shop and by the starter. I hit some balls and love the goal post on the driving range. Made a few field goals then headed to a small putting green by #1 tee. I skipped what looked like an adequate chipping area with trap.

I was added to a threesome which was enjoyable and off we went. After 5 & 1/2 holes the rain came down in buckets. The fairways were in great shape and the greens pretty good, too. I finished the front in the rain but will definitely go back this trip on a sunny day. Try it. You'll have a fun round.

Overall we had a good experience at the course. Staff in the clubhouse and starters were very friendly. The beverage cart driver was rude. Didn't seem to want to be there, not friendly at all. Course itself was okay for the most part. A few spots torn up by carts.

From the time they pick their bags up in the parking lot to checking in at the pro shop grabbing a bite to eat and at the start the staff was incredibly polite and courteous. The course was very manageable and forgiving for women golfers. The greens are a little rough because I'm out of clay but overall a great experience

We had the honor of playing this course in a big wind. You're ball would travel 20-30 yards left or right if hitting into a side wind. Easily a 3 club wind when hitting into it. Putting downwind was like putting down hill, made for a challenging day. Not the most challenging course on Maui, has lots of traps around the greens and they were well maintained. Greens were fast and not hard to read. Give the course a shot for a fun day. Restaurant there has done good food as well.

Pros: Good course with some entertaining and challenging holes. Fairways, greens and bunkers in good condition.You may play in less than 4 hours without being in a rush. Cons: There were a few rotten spots at the rough which were almost un playable and were not marked by the staff. Cart GPS is text type and some messages were not accurate leading you to some mistakes in how to play some holes. Some players don't make a difference between a good pace playing golf and running through the field.

We appreciate the attempt to enforce pace of play via the GPS system and it works most of the time, except when one group plays through a slower group. The group that is now stuck behind the slow moving group gets constantly reminded of the need to keep up via the GPS and the yardage info is no longer available. Somehow you need to fix this as it is very annoying and the wrong group is being harassed to improve the pace of play.

This course is like many Maui courses: friendly fairways with great views. The great thing about this course is it combines very good conditions with more reasonable pricing than courses such as those in nearby Wailea. Well worth playing. May make it my sole choice on the next trip to Maui!
