Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Hawaii
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.
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:)
Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali! We also appreciate you taking the time to do a review and provide some feedback. Hope to see you again soon. A hui hou (until we meet again)!
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.
Mahalo for playing and your great review! Happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. Hope you enjoyed your second round just as much!
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.
Aloha Tyler! Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and we for providing us some feedback. Hope to see you again soon so we can turn you into a WOW!
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
Apologies Charley that you were not notified until check in about the top dressing that day. Hope you were able to still enjoy your round and we appreciate the feedback!
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.
Mahalo Rusty for playing Ka'anapali and providing your feedback to us.
Aloha Rusty! Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and appreciate your feedback on pace of play.
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.
Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and appreciate the feedback you offered. Hope to see you again soon!
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!!
Mahalo for your great feedback and review! Happy to hear you will be back, a hui hou (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.
Mahalo for playing M. Fazio and for providing the feedback to us.
More beauty than challenge. Fairy wide and forgiving but not easy to beat.
Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and appreciate your great review!
Mahalo for playing and taking the time to give us a review!
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
Aloha Franklin, thank you for playing and we certainly appreciate the feedback.
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.
WOW, mahalo! Happy to hear such great feedback, hope you shared your experience with others. Hope to see you again soon! Aloha
Course was in pretty good shape although the greens had just been aerated and sanded and were slow. The traps had hard packed sand which made them difficult to escape. The fairways were in great shape.
Mahalo for playing Bob, thanks for taking the time to give us a good review!
Mahalo for playing and posting a review for us!
Fairways and greens were in good condition. Only few spots of tire marks make your shot difficult on the edges of the fairways. Views are fantastic, specially on a sunny and dry day.
Mahalo for playing Ka'anapali and for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.
Thanks for playing and for the review!
Fun Ocean Views Track
Course was fun to play and had some nicely designed holes that would be fun for all skill levels. Great ocean views throughout the property. Greens rolled good about a 9 with the grain against a 7
Mahalo Nash for the review and playing Ka'anapali. Hope to see you again soon!
Play here twice and skip Kapalua
Very playable resort course. Not as dramatic as I expected, missing ocean holes, but great views throughout the round. Much better value than Kapalua Plantation which I wouldn't play again.
Mahalo for playing with us and for the nice review! Hope to see you again soon!
