absolutely beautiful scenic views from every hole

the slow play was caused partially by the couple they threw in at the last minute and golfers that were starting on the 10th hole at the turn. Beautiful facility and lots of fun.

This course has beautiful scenery

While Wialea Gold is the more challenging course, Emerald is the more beautiful. Most holes have views of ocean and/or the uplands of Haleakala. The course has many elevation changes so heed the advice of the cart GPS system. I highly recommend you make time to play this course during your next trip to Maui. Also, enjoyed happy hour food and drink at the course restaurant.

Hawaii golf

Nothing beats golf in paradise. Course was on the ninth day of aerification but was still in pretty good shape. Can't beat the view ans it was still a great challenge. Marshall's did not want to challenge slow play which is my biggest complaint.

Great experience despite areated greens

We got a great price for a quality track through Golf Now. They had aerated the greens a few days earlier so there were some bumps when you putted but the rest of the course was in great shape. Beautiful course.

Scenic course with challenging layout

Wailea Emerald has always been one of my favorite courses on Maui. It features a challenging Robert Trent Jones layout with unmatched scenic views of the ocean. The lush greenery and landscaping is very well maintained as well as the placement of natural lava rock formations that make for easy carries to forgiving fairways. The day we played the course it had been aerated just four day prior, so the putting was not as easy as it normally was in the past. It had also been raining lightly this day, so the ball did not roll as much on the fairways as it normally does here. How ever, with the rain, the course was less crowded so only serious golfers came out making the round's pace very fast - less than 3-1/2 hours!

This course is one of my favorites here. The staff is really friendly and the pro shop is one of the best anywhere. The only thing wrong with the day was that the course was cart path only and the range was closed due to the weather, which is understandable.

An Average Course at Hugely Inflated Price!

I have now played all 3 Wailea courses, and have had the same experience at each. Yes, the course was in good shape, but it was definitely not a "10". The staff in the clubhouse were in a word - rude! I stood at the counter for several minutes while one person answered a couple of phone calls, and the other person never even looked up from her computer! The experience did not improve from that point. The starter ignored me at first, and then rushed me off the first tee ahead of my scheduled tee time. I was supposed to be playing with another single, but he decided to join the 3-some in front of me, which meant I waited on every shot until another single joined up with me on about the sixth hole. The round was comparitively SLOW - about 4 1/2 hours. (I had played Kahili in less than 3 hours 2 days earlier.) Don't pay anything close to full price for this course. There are several other courses on Maui that are in equal condition, for less than 1/2 the price.

Most beautiful golf course ever !

My wife and I played many great golf course in Arizona, Myrtle Beach, Florida and Canada. But the Emerald course was the most beautiful golf course of all. You have a view on the ocean on almost every hole. You feel like playing in an botanical garden. The only problem is that you have to take your camera out of your bag more often than your clubs. I paid 110 $ with Golfnow, so that was a fantastic deal.

Awesome ocean views, perfect greens and tee boxes, excellant staff

What can I say, you are in Maui playing golf. Staff was friendly from start to finish. Greens rolled perfect and true. I probably would not walk this course due to the elevation changes. The wind was very strong but the views made up for it. I will be playing this course again when I came back.

Beautiful coarse

The Emerald coarse was very nice, beautiful views, and in great condition. This coarse was not as challenging as the gold coarse, but it was difficult enough to make you think about your shot selection.

Lovely course , good layout

I certainly expect more from the staff when I'm paying
175-200 for a round of golf. The starter seemed to be the only person happy to be there . All the other employees weren't polite
or friendly . I've played here several times before . The price has gone up and the employees are less friendly . I will not play wailea again.

Gorgeous views

Great course for couples, pretty wide open with amazing views. Course was in great shape, greens were tough, general rule of thumb stay short on most holes, sloping back to front.
