Great course - better than Kapalua
Played this course 3 times in one week. The weather in Kapalua, where we were staying, was a bit showery so we followed the sun to Wailea. Great idea as we discovered the Gold course. Wonderful layout, great views, great staff.
We belong to a top golf course at home where the green fees are $250/round, so we (my wife and I) are familiar with what a good course looks like. The Gold course is right up there with the top courses on the mainland.
Came back for two additional rounds, and these were just as fun. Great views from most holes, and the condition of the course is top flight.
We played the Bay course in Kapalua and were really disappointed by the course condition and the stupid new hole layout following the recent relocation of the clubhouse (Nov 2018).
Have fun - you won't regret spending the $$ on this loop.
I have played the Gold Course but it had been a few years. Course was as expected in phenomenal shape. Greens were little slower than I am used to Bermuda Grass Greens take a little time to get used to. If your putting into the grain hit it firm!! Course is extremely more difficult when the wind starts to blow. Play early mornings to avoid this.
booked an early tee time to stay out of the wind and was lucky to have amazing weather. the course is heavily bunker so be prepared for that. booked as a single but was paired up with 2 other guys who were a good time. definitely makes you think off the tee box with your club selection. driving range is disappointing as you have to take a separate cart to go to the range. greens are tricky to read with speed. i recommend the course to anyone looking for a nice course in wailea.
A real treat
While the gold doesn't offer as many stunning views as the emerald, the course is a treat none the less. A bit more challenging with more bunkering that is strategically placed. Overall though the course is very fun and worth the money.
Maui Must Play
Awesome ocean views paired with a great design and great conditions to play on. This course with Plantation are top notch golf experiences on Maui.
A Must Play
This course was manicured perfectly. The greens were smooth and quick and the fairways were lush and the rough thick. The most challenging aspect of the course is the strategically placed bunkers. You will most likely hit it in at least one bunker when you play. I definitely recommend playing this course when visiting Maui.
Hard not to have fun
This was my second bite at the apple that is Hawaii golf, and I greatly benefitted from what I learned about the greens the previous day on the Emerald course. Putts do not break as much as you. Putts into the grain and downgrain generally stay in the cup. When putting across grain, read whatever break you see, then halve it. Just my experience. The Gold does not have the elevation change that the Emerald does, and the holes are a little beefier. The back nine is fantastic and the final four holes are really good, especially if you have a good score going and are trying to make pars. The rough is thick here, so don't try to do too much when getting the ball back in play. Driving range was mats only. Expansive putting green was an accurate portrayal of the greens encountered on the course.
Outstanding course, not to difficult. Greens were in excellent shape. Was set to go out as a single in second group of day. Played with the twosome that started as first group of day. Didn't hurry, played in under 4 hours. Very fair course.
high quality golf. high quality scenery.
played wailea gold on a recent trip to maui. it's full of stunning views! the course itself is in my mind a classic resort course. fairly open to allow any skill level player to have a good time, but interesting enough to keep things exciting for a better player.
the biggest defenses this course has are tiny greens and length. the day i played the wind was calm, but i can imagine it'd be tough with a stiff breeze.
overall, this is a great course that is well worth playing. the view never gets old, and the golf is pretty great too!
Double up on Emeral and Gold
If you are playing Emerald, book on Gold for a full golf experience. Course facilities; driving range and practice putting green very nice. Not as many views as on Emerald but, still grabs your attention on a few holes. Many bunkers on Gold! Greens are smaller than most think. Some forced carries but, not too many to get put you in bad spots. Par 5's for the average player are layups. Gold Course is long even from the resort tees! Overall, the average weekend golfer will enjoy the Gold and the above average player gets a great challenge!
Me and my wife played early in the morning at 7.40 am. Everything was perfect. The course was in a perfectly shape. The crew was very friendly.
Great course from facilities to the staff and track! Beautiful views!
The Gold Course at Wailea Is a challenging track with good length variety to choose from. Lots of elevation changes from tee to green create the challenge while forgiveness is often found in many wide fairways which collect off Center shots back into play.
Numerous bunkers in the fairways and protecting the greens will keep you honest and conscious of club selection.
The staff is outstanding!
Decent course, Staff not cordial
Nice condition. Great views. Unfriendly staff. They need to overhaul personnel. This is a service/entertainment business afterall.
Although the course was beautiful and the views were spectacular we played 16 out of the 18 holes before we seen the beverage cart.disappointing as no outside alcohol is permitted. Also you can not stop after nine holes and go by a beer at the clubhouse and take it with you. All in all a great day
Challenging but enjoyable
I have played this course many times in the past and I always go back every time I am on Maui. The course conditions are always perfect and the views are spectacular. The staff is also pleasant and professional!
Gold worth the wait
I waited a long time to play the gold course and when it showed up as a hot deal I jumped on it. Reminded me some of the Makena courses. Great views, lots of elevation changes. This is not an easy golf course so pick the right tee box. Greens were Bermuda grass, so hard to read. I can't wait to go back!
Some decent views, but the course is not worth $150-$200, and is in average shape at best! Lots of "dead areas", grass is like crab grass which all seems like weeds. Cart girl maybe got around to us 3 times tops. I was disappointed after my round and the amount of money I paid thinking this was one if the best. It's not. For $70-80, fine but $150-200, not a chance of a replay!
Great Condition and Spectacular Views
The course was in great condition, very scenic, great attention to detail, greens run fast and true, views of the ocean and humpback whales on almost every hole. Each hole was unique and the round was a very enjoyable experience. One of the top five courses on Maui (others include Kapalua Plantation & Bay Courses, The Dunes & Maui Lani and the Wailea Emerald Course, plus The Challenge at Manele on Lanai is a must for the avid golfer). The round was topped off by Susan getting a hole-in-one on the Par 3 11th hole, #2 and counting .........
this course needs to be played by serious golfers and golfers who want to experience true Maui golf experience
A real gem
What a gorgeous course. Along with being beautiful, the course was in magnificent condition. The greens were really confusing to me, as they were very slow and just didn't break as much as they look like they should. But that doesn't take away from the course at all. The course is very playable - big wide fairways. A very enjoyable round!
