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.

First Time Playing

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.

Nice resort.

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.

Windy

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.
