I played the Bay course and the Plantation course. When I played Plantation it was one of the first rounds after being closed for aeration but it was already back in excellent condition. The Bay course was also fantastic with the better views. A little pricy but definitely worth every penny. My girlfriend rode along and took pictures on both... More

We arrived after dark, and found it really hard to find reception! Not the most helpful at the desk with directions to the villa, but we did eventually find it! Villa overlooking the golf course, so spectacular views. Overpriced for the actual villa though - 1 bedroom and pull out couch for $185 USD per night, Plus resort fee daily,... More

My father and I booked reservations for the Plantation course but learned that at the last minute they changed the aeration schedule. Fortunately we were able to book a round at the Bay course. It is an amazing golf course with spectacular views along the coastline. We had such an enjoyable experience and the course was in nice condition. The... More

Always a delight to visit Maui especially while staying at the Golf Villas...quiet easy access to three very different beaches, restaurants. The condos and complex have undergone an extensive remodel...would highly recommend the golf is exceptional!

This is my first trip to Maui and staying at the Kapalua Villas (The Ridge) was an outstanding place to land! We had the ocean view gold package and the ocean views are outstanding. The villas are clean and well appointed. The concierge John at the main office was outstanding and really set us up on some great adventures. Beautiful... More

I can only tell you a review from the ladies point of view ... I am a 17 handicap and not a long hitter but there are some very long carries on this course. Don't expect a low score as the greens take a few holes to get used to. There is a lot of grain so you'll find you're... More

This is the first review that I am giving a five star rating AND saying that I underpaid for my experience. Both the Bay and Plantation golfing experience, from booking tee times, to dealing with the pro shop, to chatting with the starters and rangers and beverage cart gals, was top shelf. The golf courses were in great shape, and... More

Even though I had recently and injured my back. I booked this tee time before arriving to Maui. I wanted to re play the Bay Course from eighteen years ago when they use to have the Village course in addition to the existing Plantation course and Bay course. So happy I played here because this time around the course seemed... More

My two sons and I took advantage of a deal for 9 holes of golf on the front side of the Bay course, golf clubs, practice balls, a cart, and a sleeve of Callaway golf balls for each of us- all for $100 each. You need to ask for the Priceless Hawaii Kapalua Bay Course special, pay for it with... More

If you are a golfer, and you are on Maui, and you do not play this golf course, you are surely missing out. The entire property is very well manicured to say the least. The entire staff was very friendly and courteous. Prepare yourself for a high difficulty level especially if you decide to play after 1 o'clock in the... More
