Great course with an even better staff. There is plenty of length to challenge any golfer especially if the winds are up. Despite some of the recent flash flooding in the area the course is making a strong comeback. The greens and fairways were healed up for the most part. There were three or four bunkers that were still being worked on by the ground crew. I visit Maui often and I'll make sure to play here every time I'm on the island. If you don't play Bermuda greens much ask for a quick lesson on how to read them properly and it will save you headaches. I played with some folks who don't normally play Bermuda greens and they were complaining about the greens not being true. It wasn't that at all it was the fact they had no idea how to read the grain in the grass. All in all a fun day in paradise. Plus you won't be disappointed in the views.

Course received a lot of damage from recent storm but is well on the way to getting back in shape. Still some washed out areas and debris on the course. Was an extremely windy morning and made play challenging. This really took a lot of the enjoyment out of the round. Staff are very nice and helpful.

The course layout is interesting. I was scared to have a lot of blind shots as the course is in the mountain. It's not the case. Course is fair. It was windy though and that was challenging when having the wind into our faces,

I would play this course again but I would ask if the greens are in good shape before going back. Greens had a lot of spots filled with sand. Putts were going all over the place. Even a footer changed direction twice.

So if you want to play a nice layout with nice views of Maui, it's the place to go.

If your score is more important than anything else. Maybe you should wait for the greens to be in better shape cause you'll loose a lot of shots on them.

Both the greens and fairways were in poor condition. The 9th fairway had been completely plugged from tee to green. No drinking water on the course and no ball washers on the course or on the carts. Won't play here again.

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your round. Currently, we are in the process of aerating our fairways. This process is necessary to ensure the turf receives oxygen, water, and nutrients. We apologize for the inconvenience as you played shortly after the procedure. Once the cores dry, we sweep them up and then it looks and plays much better. Though we do not have water on the course, we supply water coolers in the staging areas, a snack shop, and coolers on each cart. If this information was not relayed to you, we apologize. We hope to see you again in the future after our maintenance procedures are completed.

Mahalo!

Aloha and thank you for playing with us at the Kahili Golf Course. We are glad to hear the pro shop service was good and that the fairways were nice as well. In regards to the greens, we are preparing for our aeration process by eliminating unwanted grasses from the greens using an herbicide. This process presents discoloration. We are topdressing and fertilizing to make sure they are improving and will roll smoothly. We look forward to you coming back once our maintenance processes are complete. Mahalo!

Everything was great. Very windy conditions when we played. Customer service was top notch except for the guy behind the counter. Our cart began to die on the 15th hole and we ended up pushing it in. I thought he would do something for us, but his only reply was "you should have called us". Um, maybe some people don't carry phones.

We had an excellent day! We were met at the parking lot with a cart. Bags were placed on the cart. Two wet towels and a cooler full of ice were on the cart for us to use. Check in was easy. The course was nearly empty. Nobody until 3 holes in front of us and nobody behind us. It was one of the most relaxing rounds of golf we've ever played. Course was dry. Greens were spotty, but true. No ball washers on any of the holes. Excellent course, excellent deal through Golf Now!

Great course with great mountain and ocean views. They have an issue with the greens and they have cut the bad spots out and filled them in. They look bad but actually putt fine. I'm sure it's a temporary thing and they will be bact to normal soon.

Teed off around 10:30am.

- stiff winds 20-30 mph all afternoon

- hilly golf course

- great views of Maalea harbor

- speedy down hill putts

Visiting Maui on vacation so this is the first time playing the course. The staff was very friendly and helpful, starting times were on time and not too crowded. I played in the morning around 8AM and pace of play was very good (3.5Hours). the course layout is really nice and play is challenging from the blue tee's, the course was in good condition except for the greens were pretty rough other then that I highly recommend the course if you are visiting the island!

But they started screwing anybody who doesn't happen to have a Hawaiian Drivers License. We spend two months a year here, own two properties and pay a ton of property and sales tax to the great state of Hawaii. But Kahili has decided to charge anybody without permanent residency twice or more the going rate. $39 for residents and $105 for the rest of us leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. I'm done with Kahili and its ferocious winds.

Aloha Vrob2. We are sorry to hear about your displeasure with our Kama’aina policy. Our policy reflects that of many Kama’aina rate requirements (whereby we require either a HI Driver’s License or government issued HI State ID). We have however rolled out a number of rate programs that provide tremendous value for our “Malihini” friends without a Hawaii ID. For example we are dynamically pricing rates on KahiliGolf.com (or you can call us at 808.242.4653). Our best available rates on our website for Malihini/Visitors actually vary based upon demand. Searches this month revealed rates ranging from $69-$95 depending on the day of the week and time of day. Additionally we now have a Malihini “Ali’i Card” you can purchase with offers as low as $25 (9 holes after 3pm) to $85 (May 1- Sept 30 prior to 11am). Check out KahiliGolf.com for details on our Best Available rates and new Ali’i Card. We hope this info is helpful. We would love to see you back at Kahili again soon! Mahalo
