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.

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.

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.

I played Kapalua Plantation the day before n found Dunes to be as challenging. Lots of twists and turns with elevation changes to ad to it's difficulty. Play the proper tee boxes and you will be rewarded. Shot in the 70s on both courses first time seeing them . Keeping it in the middle of the fairway is a big help scoring. Approach shots were also a challenge with tricky greens. Lots of nice views and vegetation ad to it's charm. It was however a bit pricey for the caliber of the course but your choices are limited when staying under a hundred dollars on the Island. So chalk it up to a pleasant round of vacation golf.

I am an assistant superintendent in CA. This is the WORST COURSE ive ever played in 26 years of playing golf. Staff was nice, but half the course was temporary, the rest was in horrible shape. Disregard all other reviews, I WOULD BE FIRED BEFORE LUNCHTIME if my course was neglected this way. Especially for being in Maui where the season is 365/year perfect weather. CLOSE THIS DUMP DOWN!

I knew going in that they are working on 4 greens. Two have temporary greens. Two have half under repair and half playable.

Didn't know that the other greens were aerated some time ago, and haven't fully recovered. One entire hole was closed completely. They then took a par 5 hole and split it into a short par 3 and moderate length par 4.

I felt like the green fees should have been discounted because of the condition of the course. I like the layout of the course, and enjoyed it when I played it two years ago. At this point I would not play it again until the work is completed.

Played this course on March 17 on the Friday deal of $78 bucks. The course is not in good shape. Fairways look beaten up and about half the greens are in terrible shape. A couple should be considered unplayable . In my opinion pay more and go somewhere else. According to one staff member the greens have been like this for almost 3 years.

This course offers an interesting and challenging layout. In fact, the last 3 or 4 holes will really make it hard to finish low! The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the clubhouse has an excellent restaurant. However, the conditions when we played were poor. The fairways were average, but many of the greens were in bad shape. Normally I would have expected to see reduced prices offered with those conditions. Still a better price than the more expensive courses, but they need to fix the greens.

Top notch staff here! The golf course needs a lot of work. We didn't find any help for first time player from the score card ( hole layout ). The hole signs were so faded out that you couldn't read then for guidance. The fairways were in good shape, but the greens were the worst I've ever played. Something infected them and they were bare for most of the green or really bumpy and beat up. The sand traps were thin and hard. Beautiful views and very challenging.

Do not pass up this course. It was by FAR the best course we played on Maui. We didn't play Kapalua or the $200+ courses, in fact we got a "hot deal" from Golfnow.com and we're going again tomorrow!! If I could have given the staff more than a 5* rating I would have. Im sorry I didnt get the name of the guy who got our cart, explained the layout and generally welcomed us like we were family. I hope he's working tomorrow and I'll repost with his name because that guy needs a raise! We are beginner+ golfers and this course was amazing....rolling fairways, lots and lots of sand but I need practice on that. Just a great place to enjoy an afternoon of golf!!!!

pao annua grass has taken over the greens.<br/> my favorate maui course is in for big trouble. the greens are unputtable. big bumps of pao annua are all over the greens. can't putt around them...can't hold line over them. the only thing they can do is let them totally take over then they would be ok.<br/> but i will not play there till they totally take over or are killed off.
