Good course with views but a little pricey

Played here with a friend on the Royal and had a great time. The course was reasonably difficult with fast greens and the grass was well kept. The GPS system in the carts was... read more

So most people visiting Maui are naturally interested in the well known courses such as Kapalua (which we did visit), but if you are going to play a second round, you should seriously consider the Kai course. It is a very nice layout and located right above the Kaanapali hotels.

Reserved on Golfnow.com to play Royal Kaanapali which is a very nice course having played many times before over the years. Showed up on Friday November 20 at 7AM in a downpour and was convinced by starter to not play. One month later, receive a "No Show" charge on my credit card. Two weeks of follow up later, golf club... More

We would highly recommend having a lesson with Dave Havens. He is an easy going, knowledgable and relaxed teacher! Fantastic! It was like hanging out with a friend - and getting amazing golf advice as well.

Its apparent the focus & budget is on the Royal course. In really good condition (greens, traps & fairways). Not an overly difficult course and layout/design is "ok". Nice views, staff was great but not worth $175 for resort guests. More like a $100-125 track. Kai is pretty beat up. Boring layout and definitely not worth the $140. Spend a... More

The GPS system in the carts was really good and overall had a great experience. The only cons I would say is it took the snack cart a few hours to get to... More

We enjoyed a special "super twilight" deal here and got in 14 holes before dark. The course is well maintained and has great views of the ocean from some holes. Good value for a lovely course.

These golf courses serve the resorts at Kaanapali. nicely maintained, but awfully expensive compared with other courses in Maui. Try Pukalani or the Dunes- better value !

The Royal course may be the most forgiving layout in West Maui (I've played the Kai course as well as both Kapalua courses). The fairways are VERY wide, with the trouble favoring only one side on most holes. While there are some elevation changes, they are not severe. The Royal course's main defense - other than the wind - are... More

Incredible...great people and great course. Played 2 private lessons, 18 holes, 2 carts, 2 bags all furnished at an fantastic, fair price. David Havens, the golf pro, is a great teacher! We talked to him personally before making the reservations. He could not have been nicer to us. He, also, helped us negotiate a price we could not resist. His... More
