Great day nice course priced well

Enjoyed a round in under 4 hours with a father/son twosome from Buffalo. Pace was really good even though it appeared it may start slow. Greens were a bit soft and slow but very playable. The rate was great and my son and I enjoyed the day immensely.

Aloha,

I'm glad you decided to give the other side of the island a try and got to see the beauty and friendliness that Maui Nui has to offer. We are the most fun, friendly and fairly priced course on the island. We hope to see you back out here again!

Awesome Course

We got a hot deal for this course for around $65 at about 11am. The driving range was in a little rough shape, but I won't hold it against them. The course has a great layout with reasonable OB locations. The course has an ocean view on several holes and an absolute amazing picture spot on the back 9 the captures the ocean and west Maui. I hope to come back here one day and play again, because even though it was an "off day" for my game, the views and layout made up for it, tenfold. The shop people were awesome too and so was the starter who talked about how much he loved his job and the course. Highly recommend this place.

One of the best public courses

Played in 35+ mph winds. Course was very wide. Only lost one ball when wind took it out of bounds. Fairways very well manicured. Greens somewhat slower than I am used to, but very well kept. Absolutely best value for the money. .

Aloha,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. The winds here can always make the round a little tricky, but only one lost ball because of it is pretty solid!

The greens were grown out a little bit when you played as we were getting ready to aerate the greens, but not too bad.

Maui Golf at a great price

This is a lovely and very user friendly public course. We got a great price thru GolfNow, and rented clubs at Maui Golf Shop. I know wind and heat can be major factors on Maui, but we had a beautiful day, and the wind didn't kick in until the 18th tee. The included cart had a touch screen that showed the hole layouts and calculated our yardage. I'll definitely be repeating this experience.

Hot day but great golf

Course was not in top shape due to summer drought but greens were true and tees were in good shape. Staff was excellent and very helpful when our cart GPS stopped working. Food was great at the 19th hole. Scenery is always good, it's Hawaii.

I love this course

Sadly, we weren't able to make our tee time. I was looking forward to golfing here again as my several, previous rounds here were fun and the staff were awesome!

Looking forward to the next trip to Maui and of course, golf at Maui Nui!

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

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.
