Beautiful Day. Challenging Course

We had virtually a windless day to try this tough course. The greens are well guarded and in good shape. You have to keep your driver and irons in play to score

Mountain Goats and Masochists Will Love it Here

This golf course is a mountain goat's dream layout.

There are few level lies here. The layout meanders among a series of dunes and swales between valleys. It rightly should be named The Swales at Maui Lani.

The fairways are thick and there are no rolls. The forward tees are in terrible condition with bare dirt instead of grass.

The greens are heavily grassed with the dreaded "Turtleback" design that is high in the center and lower all around. Most shots landing in the middle of these greens will wind up running off. They putt true but require a firmer stroke.

Many of the greens here appear to be new and they are in good condition, several including #9 are in bad shape.

There are several water hazards on this layout but the real terror is generated by the deep bunkering generously spread throughout this design.

Hole #16 has so many traps it appears as if the hole is one big trap with no fairway.

The Par three holes are relatively short but with small elevated greens and deep bunkers protecting them.

This is a tough layout playing on a calm morning. Teeing off on a windy afternoon could increase scores and lose balls simultaneously.

Great value for Maui

Great course for the money. Challenging with some great views of the mountains in the background. Fairways were nice and lush, also very impressed with the condition of the greens. All but one of the greens were in excellent shape. Great layout with a few tight fairways. Overall great course for the money!

This was a bit of a drive from the resort area but worth it. A very friendly staff and challenging course with elevation changes.

Nice greens. Design a bit hokey.

Greens were very good considering many in the area have struggled this past few months. Coursenis quite hairy and a bit hokey design. Nice little restaurant also. Will play again.

Nice course

Nice course and pace of play. Most fairways are generous, excellent course for Women to enjoy for the red tees are placed forward enough to not be overwhelmingly long, especially the par 5’s. Fairways could be a little more lush and several of the greens had sand on them but didn’t distract from having a great time......no ocean views but a beautiful course nonetheless.

good course fairways need help

The course is fun. The front 9 has some tight driving holes.

The back has some fun driving holes especially #10 where a good tee shot rolls down hill forever!!

Bad things

Fairways were very thin, and brown. I thought perhaps the grass in the area had gone dormant, but I played another course and that was not the case.

Secondly they had just aerated and the greens were like sandpaper with the sand.

The views are awesome, you see the backdrops of the Hawaiian mountains.

Would like to play again mid summer when the fairways are lush.

The roughs are tough as the ball does sink down.

Dunetastic

Fabulous golf course beautifully laid out

Fairways great and greens manicured to perfection and ran straight and true

A joy to play on

Locker room and shower though left a lot to be desired - the only thing to let the Dunes down

If you love golf you will love to play here

Great time at the dunes

I teed off early, about 6:40am and saw nobody the entire time. I played two balls off the tee on the back and still finished within 2 and a half hours. Great track. Greens were incredible, except for 2 holes which the greens had been punched.

For $100, it’s a great course and the drive is simple, especially from kehei

Hidden gem on Maui

Played yrs ago when first opened so had low expectation, went back on advice of a local. The course is in excellent condition, has lot of fun challenging holes . Greens were really good but

large and not easy to read, entire course was in great shape. Played the course twice during our

vacation. One problem they do not have a ranger,

so we got stuck behind a slow 4some with no one

in front of them and they would not let us thru, so finally skipped a hole. The staff is friendly and very helpful and by all accounts the restaurant has excellent food at reasonable prices, many non-golfers came for lunch. Got a great rate thru

Tee off, altho the course does have specials and

considering the quality of the course and its condition very reasonable.

Worth the money

This is the second time I’ve played here and I was pleasantly surprised by this round. The cours was in great condition and the staff was very friendly. Lots of interesting holes with a ton of elevation change. Hit it straight(ish) and you’ll enjoy the round.

Worthwhile!

Played 5 rounds during my stay on Maui. Every day a different course. This was a very good golf course. The condition of the fairways and greens were very nice! There was a change in elevation from tee to green. Narrow fairways, most were tree lined.The putting was a real challenge! This is a course you don’t want to just drive by, like I did! I played the last day of my stay and was very sorry that I didn’t have the time to replay that day or again the next day.

Stop and play it.

Finally! 18 newly grassed greens

The wait is over. After several years of neglect, all eighteen greens have been re-grassed. The greens are beautiful and fast rolling, The clubhouse still needs TLC but I can overlook that whenI’ve played an awesome round of golf.

Not in the shape as the more expensive course but also not the price either. Wind plays havoc with shots here.

gol at the Dunes

grass on greens is quite different than normal. I have played many courses over the past 62 years and have never played on greens with this type of grass. Devil grass. They putted better than expected. Course layout is very challenging but making the turn removed from the club house is a little different.
