Nice layout, set up is average challenging but actually becomes difficult when 30-40 miles per hour wind picks up and changes directions. Not too many bunkers or obstacles and the little ponds are cute and easily avoidable - until the winds kick up and the fun really begins. Locals tell me there is usually much more wind here than Kapalua and Walea. Plantation is still my favorite on this island but this course is the best wind tunnel testing of my knockdown shot.

Golly. The plants,bushes,trees, flower beds were all manicured perfectly. That really enhanced the golf experience.. Views to water superb. Course challenging in a good way. Good value all around.

We played Kahili getting ready for Kapalu. It was ready a fun course to play but the wind taught us a lesson immediately, keep the ball down. My first drive looked great until the wind took it straight down. The views are amazing, you can see water on both sides of Maui. I would highly recommend it.

Great course, technology and service. Use the "Fly Over " feature on the GPS for helpful tips on each hole as your dealing with the trade winds and will make your round enjoyable. Best value for the price for sure .

We’ve played this course on the past but felt it was in pretty rough shape this time. They don’pair up twosomes and we were behind a foursome, so play was slow. The layout is nice and it has great views.

My wife and I are high-handicappers who only play a few times a year while on vacation. That said, when we are away, we like to play on nice courses. Respectfully, this is a glorified dog track. The greens were in good shape; the fairways not so much. Most of the holes were not interesting. The brochure (understandably, but not accurately) sells the course as being SO beautiful. It's not. I'd rather pay more, e.g. The Bay Course, and enjoy all that it offers. If you're looking for a bargain, this is fine, but nothing more.

This course is always on our list when we visit Maui. Love the layout and condition. Can get very windy in the afternoons. Greens will challenge you. The grass bends toward the sun as it moves across the sky; huge factor when assessing break and putt speed. Don't estimate break based only on the slope of the greens.

The course actually would play fairly easy if it weren’t for the winds whipping off of the mountains. The wind definitely makes this beautiful course difficult to tame. Stunning ocean and mountain views on several holes. Beside the course its of, it seems as if the staff can’t do enough to make sure you’re satisfied. Even the brand new General Manager was our greeting the players. Definitely make you feel like a guest instead of just some person donating money and golf balls.

Not a lot of ways to get in trouble here as there are wide fairways and water features are navigatable. Of course the wind is always a factor and adds to the difficulty, but 133 from the whites seemed dead on. As a 12 handicap I quite enjoyed it and my playing partner who is closer to a 36 had fun. And isn't that the point? The breakfast was terrific and fast, and Ryan our server made sure everybody was looked after in a most friendly manner. I don't come here often but will certainly come back again. Cheers!

This was August so off season according to the guy at check in. Played as single and except for a few holes on front sailed through. Almost all greens in good condition, fairway was nice. A little breezy this day, and had a few funky holes, with a couple having blind tee shots, but otherwise would recommend
