Very nice course,beautiful views and in great shape!

The only complaint we had, I called ahead to reserve clubs( new taylormade), for $60, but when we got there,they tried giving my husband an old mismatched set, for the same price. Apparently reserving clubs doesn't exist. They were quite put out when we complained,but they did give him a demo set to use. Everything was great!

Staff was super friendly, course was in great shape, but pace of play was torturously slow. Corporate outing in front of us.

Great course. friendly staff but pace of play was really slow because of corporate outing in front of us. Staff tried everything to get them moving, but with no success. Staff apologized many times about this inconvenience. We were on vacation so it didn't matter much to us.

Great course conditions!

Outstanding ocean views all along the course. A nicely stocked pro shop and some excellent items on the sale racks. You have to take a separate cart to the driving range which is inconvient at best. Good pace of play for a resort/vacation type course. Overall it was a great day!

Great ocean views and wide open fairways

You can beat the view this course offers and there's no out of bounds anywhere. For the price I was expecting the course to be in better shape. Greens are large but weren't in great shape. Fairways were in great shape and there's no rough anywhere, very wide open. Staff wasn't as friendly as you'd expect for a high end golf course. We rented clubs for 60.00 (Nikes) and could of upgraded to Taylormade for 10.00 more. It was a nice experience to play here, but wouldn't do it again.

beautiful ...would play the other courses next time back

It was a beautiful day, beautiful course. We were paired with an awesome twosome from Scotland. Great day! Thanks for all. I wasn't crazy about the rental clubs...too short and different from mine. Next time, I will ship mine over ahead of time.

The greens were not so great.

For the amount of money paid I felt the greens would be in better shape. The pin placement had at least 5 other old pin placements within two feet of the new cup. They were not filled in well. Very bumpy. Why would you put the new pin placement for the day within such close proximity to each other. How about 20 feet away.

Great resort course

Easier than Wailea Gold, same great conditions and beautiful views, Emerald is fun to play and won't bring you to your knees. Staff is also excellent. Tends to be a lot less windy and wet than the Kalua and Kaanapali courses. If you can play here and Makena, you'll have two super memories of Maui. Just accept that golf in Maui is very expensive!

Fun course with great views!

Fun course. Open fairways with lots of ocean views. Most holes have several sand traps lining fairways and greens. Free range balls and love the ice cold towel at the end of the round. GPS on the carts and ice chest with water provided. Worth the cost.

Wailea is perfect

Beautifully laid out course. When the wind is low the course can play pretty easy. Wide fairways and big greens. The views you just cant beat anywhere else, unless you're in Hawaii.
