Perfect Venue and Golf
had a perfect day, Royal course is long and lots of bunkers. the course was in perfect shape greens are firm but fair. perfect fairways a must play when on Maui.
Play your own Skins game
Kaanapali hosted the Senior Skins Game from 2008-2011 and a Big Break, so it has a nice tournament pedigree. The course feels wide open, but it is very challenging and seems to play long. A lot of the greens are very elevated and guarded by bunkers, making approach shots more strenuous than tee shots.
A nice variety of holes and elevation changes keep the golf interesting. You even have one green close to the ocean. It's near a walking path, so you'll likely have onlookers clapping if you make the putt.
A pond separating the first fairway from the 18th is the only water hazard but it is definitely formidable.A meal at Roy's after the round is a must. The food is fabulous, and the dessert, a chocolate souffle, is legendary.
The Better Of
The 2 courses at Ka'anapoli, The layout and the views are superior to the Kai course. The staff was very friendly and the food at the 19th hole was very good as well. Both courses are great resort courses that are a fair test but enable you to thoroughly enjoy your round.
Beautiful open course. Only 1 lake/water hazard in play on the 1st and 18th so I went around without losing a ball which is nice.
Greens were tough to read and the grass is very different that what I have ever played in Canada and England. Great fun and some beautiful holes.
We truly appreciate you playing and agree that the course is a beautiful challenge. Not losing too many golf balls is definitely a bonus:)
The course is in a great location. Very nice views from most holes. The layout is player friendly. The staff was very friendly.
We enjoyed having you out and hope you make it back to Maui soon!
This course is perfect for a holiday golf destination with great vistas, good value if you buy a three round package (you save on the rounds and get free rentals). It has generous fairways and several lengths that you can play the course at.
Great Experience Better Views
Played this course while on vacation in Late October. Course is very nice with amazing views and wide open fairways. Greens though are very demanding and you must place your ball on the correct level or have a demanding difficult putt. The wind also plays a huge role in club selection, up on the hill I found it necessary to take an extra club or two. I was a little disappointed by the range which is small and we were hitting off mats. Range buckets are very small and there are only about 10-12 hitting stalls. It was also very warm and humid and though they give you a cooler with ice, water is not included. Usually when I pay that much to golf in a warm environment water bottles are included, though there are water stations throughout course. Also, the beverage cart was broken and was parked on course with limited access to it. golfing was fun though and that bermuda rough is tough.
We love the beautiful views and rolling fairways as well! Thank you so much for your feedback. We will certainly strive to work on all of those aspects.
Thank you so much for playing and we hope to see you again on Maui!!!
Being a novice golfer, everything there was great except the price of rental and balls. The views and course was well kept.
Thank you so much for playing! We will definitely keep the rental/ball package in mind. We are happy you enjoyed the beauty of Maui!!
If you're looking for the opposite of Kapalua course, this is it. Beautifully manicured, wide fairways, gorgeous volcano rock and ocean views. Not many punishments for bad shots, but nice rewards for good shots.
Mahalo for playing!
Highly disappointed with the greens
My poor review is solely based on green conditions and the fact that nobody told me the greens had just been punched. The greens were not playable which made the experience sub par. If you’re charging $150+ to play you have to let people know about the greens..
Pros: the fairways were in great shape and the views were pretty cool on several holes.
We apologize about the timing with our maintenance schedule and not communicating effectively. It is our goal to post conditions, but did not deliver in your case. Please reach out at: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can hopefully help further.
I played this course while we were on holidays, simply amazing!!
Great conditions overall, fairways and greens were perfect, really another level!
Driving range was in great conditions as well and with fantastic facilities.
Course desing in funny and a mix of tougher and easier holes,just a pleasure playing it!
Then you have the sea and the beach just aside...pure joy!
Staff was friendly and professional and we simply dream to come back again one day!
I played this course during my holidays,simply amazing!
Great conditions overall,fairways greens even the sand in the bunkers was perfect!
Then you ave the beach,the see just aside...
We came from italy and fell in love eith this magic place.
Staff so nice,caddy masters and reception staff were really perfect...nice pro shop too...
Only good vibes!!!
Played this course only once and it was exceptionally windy to what I’m use too. Great course layout with nice elevation changes. I’m an 8-10 handicap and it played true to that number. Got a great deal at Golfnow.
Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and for the great review!
Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and for providing us a great review!
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...
Mahalo for playing with us and for providing a great review! We hope to see you again soon. A hui hou (until we meet again)...
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!
Mahalo Sargent Mason for playing Ka'anapali! We appreciate that you played and enjoyed the experience! Hope to see you again soon!.
Mahalo for the great review, thank you for playing Ka'anapali!
