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.

Fairly expensive but worth it. Course is in excellent condition. Stay out of the lava and you can score. Greens are beguiling.

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.

We enjoyed the course very much unfortunately the welcoming female staff at the pro shop was not friendly at all.

Wonderful Golf Experience

Fabulous! Everything about the Wailea Emerald course was an excellent experience. The course is well maintained and everyone associated with the facility were very helpful. It was my first time to play the course and I would play it again in a New York minute. I was offered a tip about reading the greens, which helped everyone in our foursome except me. Tip: All the greens slope away from the ocean. Even though it appears to slope toward the ocean, the ball rolls the other way. I had a lot of trouble on the green with both sloop and pace. However, I had a great golf experience.

Fun Course

All aspects of course were good. Great vistas of the Pacific from most holes. Pace of play was good. The GolfNow rate made it more enjoyable. Course design required the use of all clubs and shot shapes.

The Emerald course has stunning views of the Maui shorelines and surrounding islands. The course itself is beautifully landscaped and in pristine condition.

Perfect! Beautiful course. Great ocean views. Excellent condition.

This is a course worthy of Hawaii. My wife's absolute favorite. Very much a resort course with mostly wide fairways. Try the food at the course restaurant - Gannon's. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all outstanding. We go there to eat even when not playing golf. Reasonable prices as well.

good ocean view course

friendly staff, nice practice area, ocean can be seen from most of course, huge landing areas and green run-offs, (played with my wife who is just starting to play & it was enjoyable for her) well maintained, and Gannons is a nice place for after-round snack.

Stunning views from every hole!

Outstanding golf course with absolutely gorgeous views from nearly every hole. Course condition was immaculate. Moderate difficulty but fair. Very friendly for women. Only downside is the staff was not very helpful. Had to ask several times before getting any service or information.

Golfing in paradise!!!

We had a blast at this amazing golf course. The view is breathtaking with every hole. I've never seen such a pristine fairway like walking on a carpet. We felt like commiting a crime every time we took a divot. It is truly a golf in paradise to be treated like a King and Queen.

Friendly and challenging at the same time

Great pace of play. Fairways in great shape. Greens in good shape although some brown patches of grass. Grain on greens always makes reading putts difficult. Beautiful views of ocean and neighboring islands.

Beautiful Views.. bring your camera to take picutres when it is not your turn.

I came from the West Maui, the Kapalua area and traffic to get there was a mess. I left an hour and half before my tee time expecting to arrive a 1/2 hour ahead. I arrived 2 min past my tee time. My group was sent out on time and I followed them out. The starter told me I could tee off and take my time to catch them or go by myself. I caught them on 3 playing normal speed. The whole round we were not rushed. The speed of play was great. The course was great. I and another Gent played from the blue tees and the length of the holes for the most part were within reach on the second or 3rd shot. Greens were nice and big, the speed on the putts was perfect, not too slow or too fast. The cart Girl was great, the staff was great. I had a great time and would play there again. Just give myself more time to get there and warm up.
