Pitiful Greens

This course has a nice enough layout and some good views. The problems with it are greens that were so thin and brown - almost “lost”...and on top of that they were recently aerated by scraping these nearly dead greens! Cup placement didn’t look like it changed in days making volcano effect around the cups.
The bunkers had no sand in them to speak of, just hard packed dirt mostly with scant sand mixed in.
The front 9 was cart path only but wasn’t very wet at all.
Worst greens I’ve played in a couple of years. They didn’t disclose the green conditions when reservation was made.
Would not play this course again.

Beautiful track

While on a week vacation I booked a round of golf at the Walker Blue Course. I was paired up with a senior couple who reside on the course (house for $3.5M).
I easily made my 10 am tee time, but was disappointed there was no driving range for warming up. That was the only negative comment for my experience.
The greens are interesting and were difficult to read. The locals say putting towards the mountain is slow while towards the ocean is fast.
The tee boxes are clean. The fairways were clean and well maintained. The second cut was not too long; no lost balls.
The bunkers are not too deep and well maintained. I had no difficulty getting out.
All around there were beautiful scenery of mountains ocean and large flowering trees. Absolutely beautiful - unlike my score.
Great course and will highly recommend it to anyone.

Nice course, but...

Nice course and all but I expected more. The guy that checked out our golf cart and clubs seemed Ike he was having a bad day. We played at 2 pm and the golf cart girl said she was just about of everything. The bar doesn’t allow us to buy beers and play on the course with them.

So the course is nice, but the course amenities and all are just so-so. I must say, KAPALUA is better and that’s where I’ll return later this week.

Old Blue comes rhrough

Old Blue Course, best value for the money. Wide fairways and large greens, but not easy especially in the wind.... I’ll be playing here again soon.

Great views but mediocre and overpriced.

As you pull up, you feel the thrill of playing at what you thought was an upscale course based upon the price and location. You quickly learn that there is no range to warm up and so you set off to the first tee cold but ready to let it fly. The greens, fairways, and tee boxes are basic. The bunkers are a disgrace with very little sand. The overall layout is poor and you realize at the end when no one is there to greet you and wipe down your clubs that you just wasted a great deal of money to play an average course. I was not impressed with Wailea Blue and because of this experience, I am not going to make the same mistake playing Wailea Emerald or Wailea Gold..

Green fees too high for quality

Not Plantation Course. Layout has some good designs, others make little sense. Had to do cart path only which made the round gruesome. Not worth more than $150 green fee. Won’t play shain

Old Blue at Wailea Great Old Track

Played on Friday just before noon with my much better half. Caught up to a foursome on fourth hole who graciously let us play through. Didn’t see anyone again until thirteenth hole. Still managed to finish in a tidy three and a half hours. Course is in excellent shape, several interesting holes and changes in elevation. Generous fairways. Some spectacular ocean views and staff is friendly and professional. A little noisy on finishing holes because of contruction but still a much better value for money than courses at Ka’anapaali.

great day of golf in December

Nice way to spend a December day on Maui. Course was in very good shape with challenging greens. Fairways are generous, but a good challenge for the average golfer. Sand traps are best avoided because of "heavy" sand. but they do come into play on many holes. Price was a little to the high side, but from what I hear from others playing here, sounds like you get what you ;pay for.

ask questions

Went off as a single, quickly met a two some who allowed me to play through. Then came on a group of five who did not, so had to skip a hole to get around them only to come up on a two some waiting on another group of five. Two groups of five with singles and two somes intermixed is bad management.

Nice track

Really nice track, conditions were amazing, a little boring and not much character, and would
probably pay a little bit more to play somewhere else. Felt was a tad pricey

course is very forgiving off the tee. but is a pretty boring course in my opinion. no driving range, just hitting in a cage to warm up. would recommend paying a little more money to play the gold or emerald courses

Majestic views

Wailea golf was a awesome pick for us to play an afternoon scramble with our wives. The course was in impeccable shape with majestic views and picture taking moments on almost every hole. My wife who almost never plays was giddy after this round. The fairways were wide and easy to hit so you can grip it and rip it.

Great course, played it before. P.S. if your playing partner can’t hit farther than 40yards at a time then you might wanna pick a different course. Sorry my only complaint, love it here.

Nice Course but too expensive

This is a nice course. I play it all the time when I come to Maui. However, when Christmas season arrives they jack the price up! So I only play it once for the $145 afternoon price. Use to play it a few times when they charged $99.
