A hidden gem

This course is a bit off the beaten path for visitors to Maui, but worth the extra time. A fun , well laid out course with lots of room for big hitters. Wide open long fairways. Greens are a bit rough, but well worth the cost for a round.

Great round - great course!

Every time we go to Maui we play Pukalani. We love the course and the deals you can get playing there. Fairways are wide and greens are good. For value this is the best course on Maui! Good deals on golf shoes too. Looking forward to coming back again!

Great Mountainside Course

My first time here but will return on next visit. On side of a volcano but really doesn’t overwork the up and down. Great value especially with Golf Now. Definitely coming back to Pukalani. Make sure you get logo shirt or hat or whatever. Logo is volcano! Great views of Lower Maui.

Nice Course

My wife and I played today and had a blast. She is still learning the game and improving so this was a bit of a warm up for Wailea Emerald next week. Greens were in great shape, as was most of the course. A few areas were in less than perfect shape and some areas in the course could use some TLC, but all in all a great time and for $37.50. Come on. I would recommend you give it a shot. We had lunch afterwards at the trailers/clubhouse and enjoyed it. The Marshall was amazing, drove a cart out to our car, shared some donuts and was an all around joy to be around.

Great

The golf carts could use a little work, but they did get us through! The course is deceiving as it looks quite easy but is one of the toughest courses we’ve ever played. Very picturesque...loved it - would definitely come back!

Very dated Golf Facility and Course

Golf on Maui is extremely expensive, from $180.00 to $300 per round. We decided to drive to the Pukalani Golf Course, as our green fees with cart were under $50 with cart. It is quite a drive from Wailea, where we were staying, around 45 minutes. The Clubhouse is very old, could use a great deal of refurbishment. We ordered food from the restaurant, and it was good. Restaurant is more like a fast food place where you order, pay, and sit. Clean, but dated. Golf carts are gas powered. Fairways were very dry. Weeds were overgrown in some spots. A few holes were very confusing, the cart path ended and we drove on dirt. On one of the holes on the back nine, we accidentally hit onto the wrong green, as there were two different “green” choices, high or low. The phrase “ you get what you pay for” can certainly apply to this course. Affordable, playable, not difficult at all. If you don’t mind the drive-it’s worth what you pay.

What a beauty!

Tucked away at the base of mount Haleakala, this course has some spectacular views. The front 9 of this course is easily the better of the 9 with some off the charts scenery. Pace of play was great for the first 11 holes, but it was much slower the final 7. Overall the course is a great value, especially for those not looking to spend an arm and a leg on Maui for golf. Can't do much better then $40 a person. Would love to eventually come back!
P.S.- only regret was not getting some merch, the logo is awesome!

One of My All-Time Favorite Courses

Despite some of the greens being recently plugged and one having a temporary while getting rebuilt, this is one of my favorite courses due to the lay-out, beauty, and very friendly staff. Definitely the best course on Maui.

Pukalani

Overall the course is easy. The fairways or better yet the rough had a lot of dead mowed grass. Your ball would get lost if you missed the fairway. The greens were running really slow

Great public course on Maui!

We found this great public course a few years ago and try to play it every time we come to Maui. It's upcountry so is usually a little cooler than lower elevations. The course is quite long and challenging, but has nice wide fairways for any level of golfer. They also have great deals on Thursdays!

Hidden Gem

This course is in the mountains of Maui.
The staff is incredible. The views will leave you speechless.
The course is in great shape.
If I get back to Maui it's the first course I will play.
