I recommend these two courses as a good back I'd to kapalu. If the plantation course is full or too expensive go to these. I play alot of golf and found these to be really good not excellent but one I have played a few times.

The Royal course is a championship course that can be fun only if you play from the proper tees (total distance of the course) appropriate to your "real" skills. The views are great and this is one of only four courses on the Kaanapali side of Maui. The Kai course is a shorter course, a "resort course" - more friendly... More

I am an okay golfer so chose this course as opposed to the plantation course. I found it absolutely gorgeous and fun to play. I really cannot believe that the plantation course can have better scenery but a few locals assured me it does. The 5th and 6th holes were the nicest I have ever played and I have played... More

I am a golf professional back home in California, so I'm familiar with the ins an outs of the business. These courses are always fun to play. They had aerified the greens during our visit, but aside from that they ere both in great shape. The Kai course is easier and cheaper, and seems like it receives a little less... More

Beautiful golf course in great location. Very well maintained with good facilities at the 19th hole. Rented clubs were a bit wanting !!

i played both the royal and Kai courses. Both were well maintained with excellent staff and facilities. The royal is a little more challenging and picturesque.

There is nothing better then golfing on Maui. The course are immaculate. And you can go to a public course and golf for under $100.

We went golfing with our 14 year old son and our 17 year old daughter. Kids golfed for free. Rented clubs from Mike who dropped them off at the hotel. The course is beautiful. The 9th hole has a spectacular view. Great afternoon!
