LAHAINA, Hawaii -- The Kai Course might be the easier of the two golf courses at the Kaanapali Resort, but it's by no means the less popular.
Because of its playability and views, this Jack Snyder design that opened in 1962 is popular among families and higher handicappers, but provides plenty of challenge for the better players as well.
At 6,388 yards, it might seem short. But because it's a par 70 and some of the holes play uphill, into the wind or both, there are plenty of difficult holes on the course, especially from the tips. In fact, there are two par 3s that play more than 220 yards from the back tees.
The golf course is also replete with great views, both of the West Maui Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
