It is JUST AWESOME! Cannot describe how relaxing it is to be on golf course with ocean breeze... view of ocean and much more... Steep hills in some part is a bit... oh well... Everything in Maui is pricy but for the million dollar view while playing - not cold, just right... just excellent. It is not my daily trip... More

Played in late October. Very slow round on a very windy day. Maybe it was the time of year, but several of the greens were covered in sand and/or in not great shape. Tiny driving range which seemed very out of place for a course that hosts a PGA event. A fair, fun layout but not really any holes right... More

Course was in great shape although we played it only a few weeks before the PGA event. The greens were a little slow but apparently they always are before they shave them down for the pros. It is a little pricey but it's a PGA calibre course with excellent service, great views, and huge amounts of challenge.

Been hearing about this course for years. Now it is 1 week before the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and all the TV stands and grandstands are in place. Cartpath only so we are doing a bit of walking, but this is a great course. Fairways are wide but you need to be careful. I had a less windy day so... More

I played the Plantation course in the afternoon, mainly because I was driving up from Wailea, which is typically over an hour drive in traffic. The wind blows most afternoons and this day was no exception. As a result, the course played tough. Pay the extra money and play the course in the morning if you possibly can, unless you... More

Play this course and you realize just how good the guys on the PGA Tour really are. Loved playing this golf course but patience is key and course management is essential. Lots of blind shots and depending on the wind, lots of errant shots. Putting is extremely challenging and depending if your putting towards the ocean or inland makes downhill... More

The Kapalua Plantation course was unreal! The greens were in great condition and the rest of the course was in pristine condition. A must play if you are in Maui!!

I wasn't planning on golfing on our most recent vacation, but once the wife found out that the Plantation Course at Kapalua hosts a PGA event every year, she basically forced me to go (twist my rubber arm, haha). It was amazing! Right from the bag drop to the final putt for a birdie on 18 to the clubhouse staff... More

Words cannot describe how much fun I had playing here. I am a handy golfer who playes of scratch and I believe this is one of the best golf courses in the world. It is on the expensive side but definitely worth the day out. I made a booking 2 months before my trip and go paired up with 2... More
