Casual friendly and playable course
We played this course twice this week and enjoyed the casual and friendly atmosphere and found the course fairly easy and playable. Some of the fairways still needed some TLC but overall it was in reasonable shape.for the price we paid. A couple of really nice ocean views topped it off!
You golf, you go home
The course was in great shape and offered a few interesting challenges along the way. However, we were surprised how little F & B was available. The cart came by on Hole 1 and again on Hole 9. No halfway house or snacks off of the clubhouse. Even worse, the staff at the restaurant and bar were unfriendly and less than accommodating. Within a few minutes we decided to leave and go elsewhere.
My wife and I played here the first day of the Golf Advisor Maui Getaway trip [ also played Royal Ka'anapali, Kapalua Plantation, Wailea Emerald & Gold. I will review these course as well ]. This was the perfect course for our first day as it was the easiest of the 5 courses to play [ but wasn't my best round ]. It is pretty open so not a lot of worries about wayward tee shots. Conditions were pretty soft so not much roll in fairways. Greens putted true and I found that the grain had much more influence than my home courses [ southern Arizona ] . Very fast with the grain , very slow into it. I also asked the starter about putts breaking towards the ocean and he told me that most of the putts would break towards the hotel with the green roof [ sorry don't remember the name of the hotel ] and I found this tip very helpful reading the greens. I think this is the perfect course for your first round to kick off your vacation and highly recommend to anyone visiting Maui.
Kaanapali Kai - Just OK
I was really lookng forward to playing this course and it was the 4th round for me in Maui this week. Firstly, I didn't find service that great. We had to carry our bags from the car to the pro shop area. The person takng our clubs wasn't overly friendly. We got there early to hit some balls and was not given a key to our cart so we had to walk to the practice area. The starter was the most unfriendl;y person we met. He never smiled and was just plain "blunt" when I asked if they were on schedule and if we could possibly start a bit early.
As far as the course, the greens were in great shape but I found a couple of pin placements quite "stupid". One was on a small shelf (#2) and one was at the back of the green about 4' from the edge. This particular green was huge.
All in all, I probably would not play this course again, nor would I recommend it to a friend unless he got a hot deal through Glofnow.
Nice layout with superior views of Lanai and Molakai. Greens were tricky and fairly quick (10); rough was fair, fairways fairly dry without a lot of roll. Plays longer than card distances. GPS system outstandiing! A very run, moderately difficult course that we will play every time we're on Maui at this price!
Kaanapali Kai golf course
Perfect last day in Hawai’i.
Played in under 4 hours
Greens under aeration
Apparently numerous courses aerate greens in September which is understandable, but not conducive to my dream vacation. The course itself had a great layout with nice ocean views, but good look trying to 1 put. Tee boxes and fairways were also aerated making for difficult lies throughout the round. The golf course did give a warning and a decent discount, but I expected more when still paying $100. I recommend avoiding this course until it heals up in a couple of weeks.
Better value at many other course in Maui.
The price was much higher than other courses we played. Greens had been sanded and small groves cut in green as part of sanding process making it near impossible to putt. Will not return.
My son and I played the Kai course today for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the round. First have to say the staff was very friendly from the pro shop down to the starter and attendants. The starter offered for us to tee off 30 minutes early since there was a gap. The clubhouse serves both courses and there is a good sized putting green (no practice bunker) and a driving range with mats that is adequate. The course itself was in great condition with shots in the generous fairways rewarded with great lies. The bunkers are maintained well overall with a few that were on the dry side. The greens were in terrific condition with challenging undulations. This course has incredible Maui scenic views of both mountains and ocean. We played at twilight which was a great value for the experience!
Good course. Lots of long holes and challenging shots. Would play again.
Rude staff at the driving range...redheaded male attendant needs basic training in customer service and communication.
Great layout great course great conditions except the greens had been punched. No mention of this and no discount for these conditions.
That’s not right!!!
