condition of course

the fairways were well water and in good shape, with most of the divots filled.

The greens on the other had had some bare spots, plus only a few he ball marks had been fixed..

But, worst of all was that one hole was closed: a sign directed us to "skip this hole and go on to the next. There was no advance notice before play that this would happen.

I truly feel our green fees should be refunded for this round..

Nice place to visit

Played with my wife and had some disappointment. Staff did not mention the course was having some construction done with one of the holes closed. Also pace a play was little slow with no ranger. A twosome had several groups backed up as they were play 'pro' style golf lining up every putt and overlooking for lost balls. Had to cut our round short due to the time limit which was over 3 hours for a twosome. Overall though we did have an enjoyable time.

Golf at Maui Nui

OK experience. Pace of play was a bit slow. Clubhouse is dated. Washrooms, at the very least, need painting. Grass, fairway conditions passable. Greens are poor. No beverage cart after 10th hole. GPS was on the fritz so had to change carts halfway through the game.

Maui nui

Course under construction

Temporary 2nd hole because 6th hole closed? Greens not in good shape, would rather have pitted on the tee boxes, some of those were pretty fare.

Really nice staff, cool driving range, chipping area, practice putt area no good. Green fee charges too much for conditions and we play a lot of golf but heh, it’s a Hawaii . Can’t beat the weather!

Cheers!

Aloha,

We are doing our best to get the course into the shape that we have had in the past and where we know we can get to again, but there have been some minor set backs. We are working hard to fix these issues, but we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review.

We hope to have you back out with us again soon!

Mahalo,

Very disappointed with this golf course

We had played this course 4 years ago when we last visited Maui & it was in great shape moderately priced & the staff was excellent. Not this time when we played November 7th 2018. 50% of the greens had not been watered & were brown & sandy. Some even had patches of grass layered down on top but not exactly smooth putting.

T boxes & fairways some were dried out while others were soaking wet.

We complained after our round about the poor condition & thought we should have a refund. But no attempt to offer any reimbursement or an apology was given by the staff, their only comment was to tell us the course really isn't that bad.

Aloha,

We spoke when you came into the shop after your round and I DID apologize for the fact that you did not enjoy the round for your above mentioned reasons.

I am sorry that the course was not what you experienced 4 years ago when you were here, but we had some circumstances out of our control that resulted in some dry areas. We are doing our best to combat the excessive heat we had this summer and hope you understand our situation.

We hope that this outing won't keep you from returning the next time you are in Maui, we would love to have you back and show you the improvements we are making.

Aloha,

Greens are a little beat up!

Friendly staff, course is shorter because they had to close o e hole down and replace it with short par three. Greens took a hit this past year. But they are working on it and it’s still probably the best value on Maui. Just not the best golf course.

Aloha,

I just wanted to follow up on your review, and let you know that we opened up hole 6 yesterday, so we are now back to a par 71 and #2 is back to normal length par 5. Our greens had a rough summer, but are trending in the right direction and we hope they are back to ideal condition within the next 3 weeks.

Thanks for playing with us and we look forward to seeing you back out at Maui Nui!

Pretty good value for your money

Fairways were decent, greens were a bit rough.

Nice to hit off grass tees on range but there was little grass left to hit off .

Sand bunkers were well maintained and the sand was of a fine consistency.

We would go back and play it again!

Lush Links

I'm from Dallas and we have a lot of great golf. Maui Nui brought that experience to the islands. Every inch is covered with lush grass . Wind makes club selection difficult. Rough and greens are mealy, so you need to hit it! If you like Easter egg hunting, I found 80 golf balls(they are left everywhere) Playing the next two days there and maybe more.

Liked course. Greens could of been better

We played this course because it was close to where we were staying in Kihei and we got a $35 dollar rate on golfnow which is amazing for Maui. Overall we all liked the course layout and it was just challenging enough. The course had some really nice views. The only real complaint we what was the greens were not in the best shape. I would recommend this course if your looking to play golf on Maui and don’t quite have the budget for some of the resort courses.

Aloha,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our course. We are happy to hear you had an enjoyable time with us. As for the greens, we had some circumstances out of our control that resulted in us not being able to water at night for 2 straight weeks. That issue has been resolved and I am happy to say the course is in much better condition today than it was when you visited us.

Come back to see us soon!

Can't go wrong with Golf on Maui, but...

Greens were terrible, nice course, great location. Shocked they charged $20 for my friend to ride in the cart...ridiculous. They sent a single, 2some, single, 4some, single, 3some and another single out = SLOW PLAY. Appears they need a Pro who cares about the condition of the course and taking care of their customers. Still, for $60 on Maui...a great deal!

Aloha,

At the time you played, we had some circumstances out of our control that resulted in the water not being able to be sprinkled at night, so we were forced to deal with the greens getting in worse shape. We have been watering as much as possible to get the course back on track and I am happy to say, I feel we are there now.

We do our best in terms of pairing people up to not slow the rounds down for others behind them, but sometimes it ends up happening a little different. Also, almost every course you go to will have a rider fee for a guest who's just riding.

We hope you come visit us again soon so you can see how much better the course is looking!

Aloha,

Just wanted to follow up on your review and let you know the greens are nearly back to the ideal conditions. We had some circumstances out of our control that resulted in the greens taking a bit of a hit. But they are basically back now.

Mahalo for playing with us and we look forward to seeing you again!

Be honest

Greens and area of course damaged by hurricane. Still playable but rate is not reflective of course conditions.

We planned on playing there 3 times but no longer. Wished the pro shop or starter would have mentioned it and adjusted accordingly, especially as a returner for the last 12 years

They will be back and great but bummed.

Aloha,

I wanted to follow up with you about your rating of our course. I noticed that for "Friendliness" and "Amenities" you marked "poor". Would you mind elaborating on those so we know where we need to improve?

Mahalo in advance.
