“Good...if you can get a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

As many other reviewers have said...Makena has seen better days. The views are spectacular, but the course is not in a good condition as I have seen in the past. They are trying to get as many players as they can out on the course and on the day we played, it was very disorganized at the start. Compared to the friendliness at the Dunes, this course takes a back seat.
Saying all of this, it was an enjoyable play. Not a beginners' course, but I am a high handicapper and enjoyed it and didn't play too badly.

“Great course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Challenging to play, good price especially with the loaner clubs/shoes if you are staying at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort.

“Makena North....great course but showing wear and tear”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Golfed a 944 tee time the other day. Loved the course and found it challenging; not a course for a beginner. Loved hole 14. he course is beginning to show that it needs some love from a caring grounds crew and I don't recommend the rental clubs as they are worn and tired but maybe if the economy changes, things will tidy up there. I still suggest this course for big hitters and anyone wanting a challenge at most every hole. The cafe is a great place to have a beer afterwards!!

“Best golf on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

All the staff is very friendly and accommodating. No pushy arrogant people. Course is in need of some tweaks, but the views are spectacular.
