Fair but challenging

Despite the heavy rain the day before the course was in great condition. Lots of challenges including some strategically placed bunkers and water hazards.

Ridiculous pace of play

We had an early afternoon tee time. Unfortunately two couples were ahead of us and refused to let anyone play through. The group ahead of us were playing two balls each. No marshal on the course. We played for 4 1/2 hours and only made it to 14. We drove around the group holding everyone up. They were teeing off on 16 and the rest of the course was empty.

Aloha,

I wanted to first thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I also wanted to address the comment about pace and the lack of marshals. We do have a marshal on duty every day of the week, who try their best to keep groups moving along to prevent unbearably slow rounds. Some days this is more difficult than others depending on the day and the quality of golfers we get on any given day. I would like to make it up to you and your group though, please call the pro shop and ask for Joe when you get a chance and I will find a resolution to this.

Thanks for playing at Maui Nui, we hope to see you again!

Better be straight!

Fun course— be stay on it, though, as errant tee shots are lost in the woods. Best value on the island. A challenging layout.

Another great course.

I read the Golfnow reviews and decided to book. I was greeted like a regular when entering the club house. I had a very nice conversation with Carol at the counter. We met a great couple that we played with from Dallas. The course had many challenges, not to mention the slope of the greens. It was a very enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend.

Aloha,

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your round. The greens were worked really hard this summer as we received no help from mother nature when it came to getting them some water. Overall for what the maintenance team has had to work with they are in great shape, getting better every week. Next time you are out here, come see the change in them.

Golf in Paradise

This course is a reasonably difficult, but not over the top course, The cost is reasonable and the course is of course beautiful. Reasonable hazards and fairways. Well worth the cost, and convenient to Wailea.

Great Maui Course

Great reasonably priced course. Friendly staff. So many of the courses are really really expensive (and empty - surprise surprise). Great to golf here and be paired up with interesting people from different parts of the world.

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

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!

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)!
