This was my wife's and my first time on Maui. We selected this golf course randomly via GolfNow. It was a good choice. The course is in an excellent shape. It is easy to navigate. There is good mix of holes (some easy, some more challenging). Players and staff were very friendly! We are going for another round on this course.

I played a number of rounds at Maui Nui, so this will cover all of them. There was some recent heavy rain, and the weather was a bit cool with some wind and rain. which made some of the rounds a real challenge. A few holes had some really muddy sections and a few of the greens were lacking grass in places. However, overall the course was in pretty good condition and the staff was friendly. I always enjoy playing here and got a great deal from GolfNow.

Course is not caliber of Kapalua or Wailea, but at almost 80% lower green fee, it's an incredible value. Greens were smooth, fairways generous, and layout has some interesting challenges. Highly recommend-

This was the first course we have played during our stay here. We really enjoyed it. Overall the course was in good condition. Greens were a tiny bit rough or bare on a few holes but still quite playable. They are renovating the ponds right now so one hole was shortened to a par 3. That could have been better marked for us--you will not find the tee markers here, look for them down the fairway on the left a hundred yards or so. Pace of play was just fine. Practice areas were plenty adequate and only $5 for 50 balls. Even have a chip/pitch/sand practice area.

Would definitely recommend and play again.

We played this course for the first time in early December. The course was very nice and the staff very pleasant to deal with. It is great value, given the price of certain resort courses in Maui. Also, very convenient if staying in South Maui. We would happily play again.

The course was in good share and the layout is very playable for all levels. The staff is very good and we have a great time. The back nine gets a little more wind and we had to club-up on almost all holes. I highly recommend this course for the value and convenience when traveling to Maui.

This was our second visit to Maui Nui. Our condo is in Kaanapali, so this course represents a drive of 45 to 55 minutes, depending on traffic. The girls in the pro shop were very efficient, as was the service in the restaurant. The driving range is adequate, but nothing to brag about. The biggest challenge on the second round was the 25 mile per hour winds, causing the need to club up sometimes by as much as 4 or 5 clubs. With courses like Kapalua costing nearly ten times more, and when you and your wife both golf, you need an affordable round of golf to balance the cost of golf on the island and Maui Nui fits the bill.

The staff makes the start of a round of golf easy and pleasurable. The beautiful girls in the clubhouse set the great mood for the day, and every staff member on the course is polite and helpful.

The course itself is challenging, yet open and forgiving enough to have a really great time.

The more I play this course, and then other courses on the island, makes me want to just play this course more often. It is leaps and bounds above others!
