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

You must play here! Nicklaus designed it, which means the layout is fantastic and a good test for golfers of all skill levels. Several holes are right on cliffs, which make for epic views. I've played very few courses in the world better than this one.

Great views and fantastic holes on the back nine. Very expensive. The staff is great and the course is not crowded, so you will enjoy a relaxing round.

I am a bogey golfer from Michigan and have played several fine golf courses including Arcadia Bluffs, Torrey Pines, and Kapalua Plantation Course. The Challenge at Manele Bay is a notch above all of these great golf courses. The course was in excellent condition, scenery spectacular on every hole, and the service was outstanding. It takes a little effort and... More

I have played all over the world and this course is one of the two most beautiful courses I have ever played, the other being Cape Kidnappers on the North Island of New Zealand. The layout is fabulous with a great variety of holes, wonderful use of the existing terrain and views that are absolutely breathtaking. The service was great... More
