Great time

Nice course. Greens are tough to get used to as they tend to be slow due to the type of grass they use. Scenery was awesome. Will be back.

do you like slow play

if you like slow (painful) play, this is the course for you. no course management. sending out a foursome, then a twosome, then a twosome, then a single. crazy. turn smaller groups into bigger groups. helps pace of play. good about 5 hours for a round that could have been played in 3. Course was in nice shape, not overly difficult, nice assortment of clothes and things in clubhouse

Difficulty Fairly Easy

Aloha,

I wanted to follow up with you on your review. I apologize that your round was much slower than it should have been. We try our best and work with our starters and marshals so we are all operating on the same principles that help to reduce days and situations like this. Unfortunately, things happen and we're all human, but just know we never would do that intentionally. We want your round to be enjoyable and relaxing, but never want you feeling bored out there by waiting for groups to move along. Next time you come to Maui, please give us another shot to show you what the Maui Nui Experience is all about!

Mahalo,
Maui Nui Staff

Had a great round

Had a lovely day - joined up with two really fun guys.

Only complaint was the washrooms - little scary.

Nice Course

Maui Nui is a nice course for the money. Played a 3.5 hour round at a steady pace. Tee boxes were a bit rough but the fairways and greens were in decent shape.

Maui Nui is Great

I wanted to write this review sooner.

Maui Nui is a great course and a great value! The people at the course are friendly. Since we come to the islands once or twice a year I purchased a membership to this course as I know I will play this course again.

I have played the resort courses and found Maui Nui as a fun course. The people make at the course (Buff and the Pro-Shop staff) remember you. I was blown away that they remembered my name on the second day I played there.

The course is in great shape. Greens are true. There are two holes on the front that are blind shots off the tee that I will conquer sometime soon. You will know them when you play them!

I have recommended this course to all my friends. One business partner will be playing it this month!

Great course and great people!!!

You will have fun and it won't hurt your pocketbook...you can play here six times for the cost of one round at a resort course (wink)!

This course can be played in under 4 hours

Maui Nui is a good value for the money. It is close to many of the condos in Kihei so you can get there in a short drive.
The course can be played in under four hours. The restaurant is good for after. I will play multiple times this visit.

A Great Little Course

Maui Nui is a great track that you can play multiple times and not have to eat poi for the rest of your trip. The course has some challenging holes that will make you think, and some open holes that will allow you to let it soar. The staff is very friendly and it's convenient to get to. It compares well to other nearby courses in Wailea, which cost 3 - 4 times as much, When I'm on the island I play here 2 times a week and then splurge on one round at the expensive courses just to say I played them

Great Value Course

I've played this course twice while visiting Maui. Its very convenient if you're staying in Kihei or Wailea.

Most of the other courses in Maui are quite expensive, this course manages to be a relatively good bargain while still providing a fairly challenging fairway layout and amazing views of the ocean at several holes on the back 9. The course is never really super busy and I've never felt rushed or pressured to play here.

I'd recommend this course to anyone traveling to Maui.

Good value for an enjoyable game

Extremely friendly staff. Excellent value for the discounted booking price. Enjoyable course. Green speed a bit too slow but they ran true. Not busy so pace of play under 4 hours.
Would gladly play again anytime.

Great place to play

The pace today was no fault of the course. Just some older slower players. This is o e of my favorite tracks to play. Greens are a little slow but in good shape. The staff is always incredible.

Maui Nui

I have played this course about 6 times over the last few years, we go to Maui about every 12-18 months, This is a very nice course for the money. The pace of play is good and most of the staff is very friendly, other then the older Caucasian starter sometimes he is in a mood but don't let him scare you away you will not want to miss out on playing this course
