LAHAINA, Maui, Hawaii -- The par-73, 7,411-yard Plantation Course, the jewel of Kapalua located on Maui's northwest shore, is one big golf course.
Big slopes, big holes and really big views make the Plantation one of the most visually stunning golf courses in the world. The change of elevation is akin to some of the biggest mountain courses in the world, with spectacular Pacific Ocean views throughout the course.
Sloping fairways and greens also make this Ben Crenshaw/Bill Coore design one of the most interesting courses on the planet. The grand scale of the course unfolds across natural geographic formations and pineapple plantation fields creating angles, bounces and rolls seen on few other courses.
The course record, by the way, is 62 set by K.J. Choi at the 2003 Mercedes-Benz Championship and Graeme McDowell at the 2011 Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
