One must be well hydrated and in top shape to play this course! The views from every hole make it perfection in my book. It’s long for ladies and the elevation changes make it quite difficult. Winds this time of year sustained 30 mph so...More

Even though it rained for about an hour during my round, it didn't ruin the round one bit. This course is beautiful from hole 1 - 18. The view never get's boring. You can take pictures on every hole. Highly recommend playing this course .

I actually was here to watch the Sentry Tournament of Champions practice round, but got to see much of the course. If it is good enough for the PGA, it is good enough for me. Beautiful scenery!

With a view across the bays, oceans and other islands at every tee and green, playing the Plantation is very memorable. Great staff, good and very diverse greens. Well worth the trip to the top of Maui to play.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of golf lessons, lunch and playing the Kapalua Plantation Course. Lesson with Brad was well worth the time spent and playing the course is breathtaking no matter how well or poorly you are playing. Should be on every golfer’s bucket list.

This PGA level course is extremely challenging with many blind shots on a hilly course. However, it does offer the most amazing views of Lanai when the weather is clear. We had to stick to the cart paths which made us walk probably more than...More

I’m lefty (not 6-4 though!) and got rentals from Jimmy’s golf club rentals in Maui, about 15 minutes down the road. Lots of selection and nice clubs. He will also drop them off and pick them at the club for you.
