This and the Plantation course are located right next to the Ritz were I was staying. I played this course twice and it was a great time. Many of the holes are next to the ocean so you get a lot of sea breeze, but thats a welcome thing if you are playing in the afternoon when the sun is... More

My husband and I LOVED this course. We both golf with a 20 handicap and have played many different courses everywhere but this was absolutely our favorite. It was so beautiful with awesome views. It was very fun to play with different challenges but not overly difficult and the greens weren't super fast or tricky. It is definitely expensive but... More

We played the Bay Course twice. It is dramatic in setting and challenging golf. There were views and turtle sightings. We had a ball, would go back.

First, the Bay Course is not in Lahaina. It is in Kapalua which is several miles, and about a 25 minute drive from Lahaina, and a totally different landscape and environment. Anyone thinking Lahaina or trying to find it there will be at a loss. It's quite a good course, player-friendly for a broad range of handicaps; many of the... More

I could definitely play The Bay Course at Kapalua everyday of my retirement. Built in 1975 this Arnold Palmer design is very hilly with generous fairways and many having great views of the ocean. I found the greens to be quite large with subtle breaks that are hard to read because of the optical illusion caused by the West Maui... More

Since this part of the island is extremely windy, and the bermuda in the rough is very tall, is very easy to lose your golf balls. Ups, downs, hills. Very entertaining course. Practice your chipping before playing.

This course is great for good and practicing golfers, with some great holes near the sea. After 2.30 pm Juniors are free which is a good bonus as golf round here is not cheap. My husband and son managed to get 15 holes in one day and 9 the next. Note you have to have a buggy but it comes... More

This beautiful course is on the west side of Maui. Most of the holes give you a spectacular view of the ocean, neighboring Molokai'i, breaching whales, all of which are very distracting. The course is not too difficult, my wife likes it because it is woman friendly. The staff in the pro shop were welcoming as were the kids who... More

Always love playing courses that have a few holes on the ocean. Good elevation changes to the course and greens were awesome.
