Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Hawaii
Good times and worth the money
Not the most expensive course in the area, but it was in top notch condition, so the value is amazing! Can't escape the wind on Hawaii, so hopefully you know how to play the wind. Pace of play was great (4 hours), and we took our time as a twosome behind a foursome. Could have easily been faster if we cared. We didn't. Awesome course and I will be back. Owe a little revenge at 2 holes...
One of the best I’ve ever played!
I came here from California for 10 days and first golfed 18 on the bay course which set my standards for Maui! This course was absolutely beautiful, I played the Royal instead of Kai and everything was in tip top shape! Fairways clean and full, rough wasn’t to hard to get out of (nicely cut for beginner-moderate players) and the greens were better then the Bay course...firm, full difficult being the nicest course when my municipal courses in California have slower greens but OVERALL ABSOLUTELY WORTH EVEY PENNY!
A Royal time
Great day for golf. Challenging course pin positions accessible depending on location of drive. Greens are hard to read but enjoyed the challenge.
One of the course pro’s was extremely rude, the only people that were nice were the cashier (go figure) and the cart girl. Everyone else acted as if we were lucky they allowed us to play there! They need to check out Kapalua and see how to run a course and how to treat customers who pay a great deal of money to play
Aloha Charlie, mahalo for your feedback. We would love to discuss your experience further with you if you are able to please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would be happy to discuss. Mahalo!
If I had to choose one word to describe this experience, it would be disappointing. From a poor warm up area to greens that had been freshly sanded (they never let us know) to slow play to a layout that wasn’t anything creative, this is a course that is barely worth half of its exorbitant cost. Add that to our cart dying in the fairway of the 10th hole and it taking 5 phone calls (and two holes of walking) to get someone to come help. All in all, disappointing.
Aloha Taylor, mahalo for your feedback. We would love to discuss your experience further with you if you are able to please send us an email at email@example.com, we would be happy to have one of our managers discuss with you directly. Mahalo!
As I continue my Maui golfing trip we had our eye on the Royal course for sometime now. It’s hosted many events and is the more challenging course between the 2 on the property.
We were surprised with how nice it played. Course was in good shape, pace of play was perfect and the views and surrounds are nice as is everywhere in Maui.
This was the lowest priced green fee we have seen so far and it’s shows in the overall feel compared to The Bay and Plantation courses.
I would recommend playing here forsure if you’re in the area and I wouldn’t hesitate playing here again myself.
The course itself isn’t that difficult as there is limited water and lots of areas to bail out. Putting always comes down to knowing if you are with or against the grain here, figure it out sooner than later:)
Fun challenging resort course
Attentive staff that acts excited to help, limited warm up number of balls but decent rental clubs. Layout as I remembered with more than 10 years since last round. Some long par 4’s some short par 5’s but layed out to move people around. Slows down if everyone hitting out of sand. Fun and would do again tomorrow.
Round was fun. Course very scoreable, but for 180 I just expect a little more. Course was beat up after a long week of play over thanksgiving, I don’t fault them for that; it was just the little stuff, didn’t get greeted when we showed up, no direction, nobody asking if we’d played before, small range. All in all it was golf in Hawaii, but not a course I’ll try to play again while visiting.
Greens had been sanded. No notice until we saw the sign upon entering the pro shop to check in. And they called it “too dressing applied to course”. Not “greens were sanded”. Lame
Pace of play sucked, no marshals to help out
How can you allow a five some to play Saturday afternoon when you have a full tee sheet. On one hole there were 4 groups waiting for the five some. We phoned and got no satisfaction. The excuses were that there was a tournament and a skins game. Took 4 hours and 45 minutes to play. Unacceptable. Do not play here.
Get out and play early
Spendy but its Maui. Driving range is minimal-mats and short... Course opens at 6am but has 6:30 tee times, not much time to get food(Roy’s “opens” at 6am as well-no food ready), drinks, warm up and putt. Nothing else is open at that hour in Ka’anapali either...Beautiful weather and almost no wind that early. Played in 4 hours with a foursome and none of us had played the course before. So that was great! I say you try it once, beautiful scenery and good conditions.
What a day!
Strong trade winds made the round even more challenging than anticipated, but what an amazing experience. The course was in great shape and I was reminded once again what a master designer RTJ Sr. was. Check your ego at the door, play the course as it was designed, and prepare to have a wonderful day. Until next time!!
5 Hour Round and plague of Nats
We played behind a tournament and there was NO Marshall on the course to monitor play. OVER 5 hours to play. Nats were everywhere and got in my eyes, mouth and ears. Also, Cart lady just came around twice. WAILEA OR Kapula are much better options.
More beauty than challenge. Fairy wide and forgiving but not easy to beat.
Course is convenient to hotels and resorts but expect super slow play
They sound out 5s and 6s which slows down the already slow play.also kinda expensive
Yiu can play 45 minutes away for half the price
Closest thing to paridise.
Did not have any bad things to say about this course or the staff. I would rather play here than Pebble. The greens were fast and true even though it looked liked they had been punched and sanded within the last few weeks. It was so nice and not crowded had to play 36.
