Great bang for the buck

Friendly easy going staff... Winds pick up pretty hard, but unless you’re teeing off at 6 it’s to be expected anywhere on the island.... Most holes are straight forward with a few blind tee shots... Play it from the whites if it’s your first time. Greens roll true

Aloha,

I wanted to thank you for leaving us a review and am happy that your experience with us was a great one. We are been working very hard on the course conditions over the past year to get it to the condition we are in now, which as you stated, is excellent.

We hope to see you back out here again with us if/when you're back in Maui.

Not pretentious

This is a very good value and a nice southern Maui golf course. It's a simple and relaxing facility. The golf course is plenty a challenge. The staff is friendly and a good common person's atmosphere.

Not pretentious

Laid back and plenty nice. Good little proshop with adequate bar/restaurant. It is a common person's golf course and probably a fine value for most people not caught trying to impress people. The course has plenty of challenge and fair even with some trade winds. Only one or two blind tee shots. Putts break toward the tiny crater/island of Moöllikini. Beverage cart with a friendly staff.

Great value!

The course was in great shape and the whole experience well worth the $99 round of 18 plus $60 club rentals (TaylorMade M4’s!).

Great simple layout. We played from the whites and it was very forgiving. Blues are a little tougher yet and gold tees are only for the really long hitters.

Compared to Wailea’s three courses, this one is easier, but a can’t miss for the money.

Very Enjoyable Round

Played 18 today with my two boys. Loved it. Course is in vg condition. Fun to play. Greens were good. Pace was awesome 3:30 to play. Only beef is the fairways were rock hard in places. Not a deal breaker but a point of improvement. Will be back!!! Not Wailea or Kapalua, but doesnt pretend to be.
Best golf value on the island along with Pukalani,

Aloha,

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and am glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. The fairways tend to be firm for us because of the lack of rain we get in Kihei, every other course on island gets rain at least periodically. We haven't seen rain in Kihei since February so that is why they are firm, but the greens we make sure are soft enough to hold approach shots.

We look forward to seeing you back out with us again if/when your return to Maui.

Best deal on Maui

Yes it is, if you can get a GolfNow hot deal, otherwise it seems to me to be overpriced. The course is in fine shape from tee to green. Played as a twosome in a little over 3 hours.

Aloha,

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and am pleased to hear your kind words about our course. We work hard to keep it in great shape and green (given the lack of rain and high temps we go through) and are very happy with the condition it is in right now.

We look forward to seeing you back here next time you're in town.

Best deal on Maui

This is the place for a good round that wont break the bank. Got a discounted green fee from Maui golf shop in Kihei. Had a good rental deal 40 bucks for a set of clubs and 3 balls. Had the whole course to ourselves had a great time. I'm sure there are more beautiful courses in Maui but this place is fine and the price is right

Good course for beginners and those finding their game again. Straight and wide fairways with just enough obstructions if you miss. Good value for Maui.

Great course. Well maintained with very friendly staff. The fairways and greens were well kept and it was a pleasure to get from the miserable UK weather. We were made up into a 4 ball with done lovely visitors from Seattle. Would love to play this course again
