The Plantation course was perfect, staff friendly, food and service exceptional - a first class golf course worth every penny! We were lucky enough to get paired with a couple that are members (Mick and Jeannie)- they also made the overall experience fantastic!

Front nine is awesome and played really fast if you got a tee time at the afternoon rate which starts at 1 PM. Some of the views as you come out over the ocean are awesome and tend to slow the play down as you get near par three next to the water. We played this in March in the... More

This is a terrific course I've played a couple of times. But this last time I was sorely disappointed in that the pro shop attendant lied about the condition of the greens. I noticed the practice green had been punched and sanded. So I asked if the course greens had been recently punched and sanded and was told no. This... More

On tripadvisor, there is no attraction named Kapalua Bay Golf Course. So...this is my review of that course. The Bay course is the easier, older sister of the Plantation Course. It has views of the ocean on most of the holes. It has 2 holes that you can lose your ball on the beach (ocean-side holes). When staying in Kaanapali,... More

Wife and I and another couple played here in mid Feb and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. T boxes, greens and general condition of the course was great. Also enjoyed our lunch on the deck of the clubhouse after the round. If you are in the area I recommend a round at the Bay View for an enjoyable day

The course design, views, and condition of both the Bay Course and Plantation Course are absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended.

We have't play the course in 10 years and the new owners have not kept the course in "world class" shape it used to be, The greens all had "fairy ring" fungus, native grasses sprouting up in the fairways, sand bunkers in average shape, and weeds in all of the beds around the club house. They better get there act... More

I did the volunteering at the Hyundai toc and got a free pass to golf the bay course. It was so good, i decided to pay for my own second round. Usually i wouldn't pay this much but it is worth it at least once.

This course was not in good condition for the money they charge. My wife and I have played numerous rounds of golf on many courses and the Bay Course at Kapalua was a huge disappointment to us. At the rate of $208 per player this course was not worth it. Make the drive to Wailea, well worth your time and... More

Kapalua golf consists of two courses, the famous Ben Crenshaw designed Plantation Course, and the "easier" Bay Course. I played the Plantation Course last January from the regular tees that are 6674 long.....this course was a beast as far as difficulty and fast greens. Today I played the Bay Course "resort" tees that are 5686 in length. I enjoyed both... More
