Not a mark on the greens. As good a course as anywhere in the U.S. Although the resort is closing for renovations, golf day trips are available. A must if you are in Maui and a golfer. My husband is a single digit and we have played all over the country. Well worth the ferry ride!! Enjoy.

This course is fantastic. Amazing condition and phenomenal views. Not cheap, but worth it. You'll likely not see another player all day.

Compared to Pebble Beach, St Andrews, this is my #3 course favorite. The course is comparable to Pebble Beach with ocean views all along the course but the condition was excellent because it didn't seem to get a lot of play. It caters to the local homeowners/club members in the Manale Bay community and Four Seasons guest. There were 32... More

Wow! The views are amazing, and you can see dolphins spinning and whales breaching as you play. You are not rushed and can take your time. Even stop at "the Views" for lunch

Highly recommend... beautiful course, quiet not a lot of people. Great layout but not so long and difficult that it can't be enjoyed by the average golfer. Bring your camera!

Enjoyable from many aspects. There are several sets of tees from which you can test your game but being a resort course, it's not designed to beat you up. Beautiful views, great service and practice facilities.

Im a 2 handicap who has been lucky enough to play some of the best courses in the world- but none prettier and in better shape than this one! After a 45 minute ferry ride in which we saw numerous whales at play ( mId February ) we took a shuttle to the clubhouse; the bag guys and pro shop... More

Course was one of the best with the advantage of seeing whales during the whale season. Loved the relaxed feeling and superb care given by the golf attendants.

I play a lot, about 100 rounds a year. I play Ireland Scotland as well as U.S. Manele is one of the best. Top ten all time in my book. Outstanding views. Great conditions friendly service. Don't miss it.

Most I've ever paid for a round, and you have to take a 45 minute ferry ride over to Lanai from Maui. But, definitely worth the price of admission. Ocean views on almost every hole; beautiful cliff shots, etc. Very playable for everyone though as greens are fairly flat and fairways pretty generous. We took some great photos during our... More
