Not a bad view anywhere on the course

First off, don't even think about comparing it with the Plantation Course. It's not a fair fight. But this course is really strong in its own right. The views are terrific, there isn't a bad one anywhere on the property. The two holes on the water have the best views even though the holes are mediocre. The only criticism is that some of the holes are shoehorned into small spaces. There isn't a lot of room. But the property is so valuable and the real estate around the course is important, thus the reasoning. But it was in great shape and it's a place where you'd continually go back and always have a fun time.

Waste of time.

Kapalua bay is the most overpriced golf course. The weakest two holes are directly on the water. The rest look like Muni holes. The head golf professional doesn't know the first thing about customer service. He was more interested in the money game that went off at noon which comprise of five sums. The pace of play is ridiculous. Is there something better to do with $150? YES!!!

Really???? You’re in Maui on the coast, yet complaining about it? For $150, that’s a steal for Kapalua.

Not Plantation but still a great course

I played both Kapalua courses on this trip and enjoyed both. Plantation is world class but the Bay course is fantastic if you don't compare it to Plantation. Course was in good condition except the greens had been recently aerated and sanded so they were not good. Hole 5 is a par 3 over the ocean that is very scenic. There were a number of other pretty holes. Fairly wide fairways so it was easy to stay out of trouble. Bermuda rough is tough to hit out of. Would definitely play this course when back in Maui.

Great club with 2 great courses.

Plantation: Tough course but very enjoyable. A lot of carries so better for experienced players. Bay: Great for all players. Spread out tees. Both: GREAT VIEWS.

Texas Hill Country Meets Pacific Ocean

I'm from Texas and the best way I can describe this course is one of our beautiful Hill Country resort courses, like Barton Creek or La Cantera, with all of their elevated tee boxes, set on the Pacific Ocean. Front nine is more scenic with holes along the water but back nine has some interesting holes as well. First hole is not as scenic as some others on the island (e.g. Wailea Emerald or even Pukalani for that matter!) but holes #4 and #5 are some of the most beautiful I've ever played. Windy in the afternoon but no more than Pukalani and expected. Beautiful natural beauty inspires my game so I caught fire on the front nine but couldn't keep it together on the back. Overall, an awesome experience that you have to experience at least one but it is expensive.

Amazing views, a must play!

Really enjoyed the Bay Course. There are so many holes that have outstanding views that you can hardly focus on the golf. However, the course is equally great. I used a rental set and they were great, new Callaways!

Visually Spectacular

Although the course is a bit quirky, it's a gorgeous facility, with amazing views throughout the entire course, and was tons of fun to play.
