Great golf course. When you watch the pros play here in January, you can't get a complete feel for the extensive elevation changes on the course. Very playable from the resort tees, however you better know how to hit the ball from extreme downhill and uphill lies. It is incredible that the pros can walk and play this course for... More

I played Kapalua in March and it was one of the best tracks I have ever played. To put it in context I have played Pebble Beach and Kiawah Island amongst other top US courses and Kapalua rates at the top with these other courses. Definitely a must play on the bucket list. The views are spectacular (whales breaching can... More

This is a wonderful course that has impeccable upkeep. Typically it is usually windy at this course. I had the good fortune of playing it three separate times with little to no wind. It is fun to play this course, for the average golfer reading the greens and putting can be the most challenging aspect of this course. I enjoyed... More

Beautiful course with amazing views in the upscale Kapalua area of Maui. The assistant pro in the pro shop (Michael) could not have been more friendly and welcoming when we stopped in to inquire about golf. This course is pricey, especially for average Joes like us - $295 for morning play (in March, anyway) - you get a $30 discount... More

I am used to having more distance from the men's to the forward tees on a resort type course. The setup here makes for a long day if you don't have distance. The tall grass on the side means any ball ob is gone. It's a beautiful course with sweeping views and interesting bunkers.

Now that the Prince Course on Kauai has become "private", the Kapalua Plantation Course has become my top Course in Hawaii. I have one or two "must play" courses on each island and the Plantation is my only one on Maui. The course is seen on TV each January when the PGA Tour comes here. The pros make the course... More

...play the Plantation Course. The course where the PGA begins the season is a very tough, but unbelievably scenic and well maintained golf course. I got a true appreciation of how good the pros must be to win the Hyundai Tournament each year. Even though you think the putt breaks right, it breaks left. If you're sure your putt is... More

Looking to test your skills this is the course. Played on a rainy day and we were almost the only ones on the course which made it fun. No waiting!! Home of the Hyundai tournament in Jan each year this course is challenging and a true test of your skills. Enjoy it, great vistas.

Great views, well maintained, nice staff. Fast greens, hard to read lines, blind shots. Wind. Lots of elevation. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
