Postcard-like views on nearly every hole. Course is a bit difficult, especially when the wind gets going, but still a fantastic course that no golf fan should miss! Friendly staff all over the course and don't forget your custom bag tag!

I’ve been to Maui three times prior to this summer 2014 trip and NEVER played Kapalua! This “bucket list course” sure caught my attention this time around. Conditions were great, staff at the course was top-notch, and the day was almost perfect. My drives went a mile, just like on TV! I only had two complaints- greens were rock-hard that... More

Have played other just as nice courses for much less money. Enjoyed king kamehameha for less money and more beautiful. Booked tee time through Hawaii tee times even though it is a private course. Played on Monday and pretty much had the course to ourselves.

They do a deal past 2pm, juniors free..I played solo and flew around front none which offers great holes, 4-6..you'll love the par 3 over the cliffs.. Or the dog leg left 4th out to sea..back nine has some challenging undulating and blind holes as well, more forgiving and I though easier than plantation course plus way cheaper..won't put you...

We played the Bay Course at 1 p.m. It was a beautiful but warm day by Kapalua standards. We were paired with two nice men and the round took us a little over 4 hours to complete. That was not bad for a resort course. The course is ...of course ....beautiful with sweeping views of the ocean and islands. The... More

Worth the money for the experience. Awesome Views! My husband loved this place and staff was very friendly. They also give you an engraved bag tag with a round! I just drove him around that day, had a lot of fun! Great breeze coming off the water!

I played the Bay Course twice this week and had a great golf experience. Most notably was the players assistant Dawn who took care of my clubs and bag coming and going. When I went into the clubhouse after my round she held my clubs and took me to my car in a cart. Great service and a smile the... More

I got to play the bay course after playing the plantation a couple years ago. This is a very nice place with very helpful staff. Everything was in great shape, except for my golf game which needs a little help. But it's a pretty forgiving place.
