Kapalua Golf, The Best Golf Courses in Maui

Kapalua Golf, The Best Golf Courses in Maui
Situated within a working pineapple plantation, Kapalua Resort is a 22,000-acre resort community nestled between the West Maui Mountains and the shores of the Pacific Ocean on the island of Maui. Renowned for its two championship golf courses, Kapalua Resort is easily accessible through daily inter-island flights.

Award Winning Golf Courses

Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of the superb facilities offered at the two Kapalua public golf courses. The newly renovated Bay Course offers one of the most dramatic holes in golf with the shot requiring a hit over the ocean. With ocean views and an outlook of the neighboring island from 16 of the 18 holes, the title of “Hawaii’s Favorite Resort Course” is well deserved.

The slightly larger Plantation Course has ocean and island views from every hole, and one of the most famous finishing holes on the PGA Tour. Both courses have received an abundance of awards and accolades, giving them the status of the best in Hawaii, as well as being rated among the best of all modern courses. Plantation Course is known as the best public course in all of Hawaii. For golf lovers this is a “can’t miss” course.

Rates and Facilities 

Rates vary according to the time of day, with standard fees for the Bay course at $208 while the Plantation course costs $278. Registered guests receive a discount and junior rates are available. The Kapalua Golf Academy offers hourly instruction and development or improvement packages, and golf lovers are spoilt for choice with private lessons, digital video analysis, and a multitude of game-improving facilities and opportunities available.

For relaxation, fine dining, and ocean views, Kapalua Resort presents The Plantation House Restaurant. The hugely popular clubhouse-based restaurant combines award-winning Hawaiian-Mediterranean cuisine with warm Hawaiian hospitality. Local island ingredients provide the basis for a menu that blends Mediterranean flavor with rustic simplicity, with an emphasis on fresh produce and taste.

LUX Tip: Both courses experience significant wind that even great players have a hard time being truly prepared for. Once you’ve completed playing either course treat yourself to The Plantation House Restaurant for a late lunch or dinner. The views are spectacular and offer a unique view of Maui and the ocean.
