Played this course many years ago and remembered liking it and same was true this time. Beautiful views, nice wide fairways with some challenging undulations, raised greens, bunkers, etc. but not so many challenges that it took the fun out of the game of golf. Good value and a friendly staff.

I have played this course a few times. It was in much better shape on this trip. It has a very interesting layout and some really nice views. It is also cooler as it is in the up country, which is nice if you don't like it too hot. The pace of play was very poor, and we only saw a marshall once, and he did not seem to make any difference. As well, the amenities were poor. However, it is a bit cheaper than many other courses and worth a try. Some of the views are wonderful!

My wife and I played Pukalani for first time yesterday, and I have played most of the courses on Maui. This course is simply EXCELLENT, and the shape this course is in? Wow, worth every 5 star I can give it. Take advantage of the Thursday deals or weekly deals. Probably the most friendly staff on the island. Great work continues to be undertaken by Ron and his team, but with every hole offering jaw dropping views of Maui and a great golf challenge, you cannot go wrong.

This is my second time playing the course. I have to say that it is one of the best on Maui. Course has a great layout staff is friendly they will help you with any question or concern you may have.

The price to play was great and when i played 2 years ago it was the same price.

Not only great golf. Beautiful green , fairways and the views are awesome. Make sure to take your camera for some great pictures.

You will enjoy your round.

Fairways and greens are in good shape and generous size. Good variety and views. Club house and restaurant are still in temporary trailers after all these years, but the very friendly staff makes up for it. Green fees are low for Maui, and even better on Thursday. Worth the drive from the beach.

This course is great for saving $$$ on vacation. 3 of us played for the price of one at any other course on Maui.

Great service at the food service trailer, but still no attempt to rebuild the clubhouse after many years post-fire.

On course amenities such as ball washers in disrepair.

All in all a public course experience at a public course fee.

With great views!

We typically play the municipal course when visiting Maui for the value & views, but thought we'd give this a try for something different. We were not disappointed. We had a foursome of beginners & experienced mixed, so it was a great course for all levels. Greens were a bit rough on many holes, but there really isn't much they can due given the area & the difficulty growing grass. Staff was great & offered great info at check in. Course is set in a beautiful upcountry neighborhood with some great views.

Great management and grounds crew.

This was our first time playing at Pukalani Country Club. Unfortunately, the street signage for Pukalani Street was not very clear and there was no golf course signage to follow coming off of Highway 37.

As you can expect, we were lost and late for our tee time. However, upon arriving at the golf course, Tessa and her team were very accommodating. They told us that we were not the first people to get lost and not to worry by rushing. They even gave us time to warm up on the driving range. When we were ready, they would fit us in. This is great service. They put my mind at ease and as a result, I had a great round.

As for the course conditions itself, it has wide fairways and is very forgiving. In terms of the all of the golf courses in Maui, this is the best value if you are looking for affordable green fees, exceptional service, and good playing conditions for the regular weekend golfer.

I would definitely come back when I'm in Maui again.

Tip: When you see the Pukalani Terrace Center, that is Pukalani Street. Just drive down that street to the end of the road and you will reach the golf course.

Break away from resort golf and play a course that's a good value. The course rewards staying in the fairway as getting into the true rough will annoy golfers who have not worked on short game skills. And don't top the ball on any of the par threes, this is a rainy side of theValley Isle so there's ball eating jungle.

We play here whenever we come to Maui- usually every 1-2 years. GolfNow had a great deal - 2some with cart for $100. Any golf for 2 under 150 on Maui is great! Lol we played early as the winds really hit hard up on the hill later. Pace of play was the lone downer and we did still finish in just under 4 hours...but it should have been 3.5. The people in fron of us were never ready golf.. Walk out, look at shot, walk back, grab a club, walk out, decide club not right, walk back....you get the idea. The Marshall knew it and did say something to them once ..it got better on the back, but not a lot. Oh well...take in the views and enjoy. We did. Pro shop is always friendly... We had a hot dog at the turn and that took over 12-15 minutes...but since we were backed up anyways, it was another oh well.

Great views...local feel---local prices. Course in good condition--not pristine but very playable---keep the ball in play--a good number of holes with OB to both sides. Greens are on the slower side but roll very well. Interesting elevation changes and some challenging dog legs. Overall great experience!!! Would highly recommend and can't wait to play again.
