Consistently ranked as the #1 golf course in Hawaii, playing The Plantation Course is sure to be on every golfer's bucket list. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the course was designed on a grand scale in keeping with its location on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains and offers dramatic ocean views from virtually every hole. Its lengthy 7,411 yard par 73 layout challenges the pros but it's wide fairways and generous greens make it very playable for the average golfer. With dramatic elevation changes, this course offers plenty of downhill tee shots. You'll feel like one of the pros when - with the aid of the aggressive slope of the 18th fairway - you will enjoy hitting one of the longest drives of your life. The Plantation Course is the site of the PGA TOUR Hyundai Tournament of Champions each January featuring an elite field of previous year's PGA TOUR winners.

We had a great afternoon playing golf with our wives. So many spectacular views. The staff is on top of their game, the course is in great shape, and the greens are in perfect condition. We took a fore caddie with us and I would highly recommend anyone do the same. Chris was extremely helpful and did a marvelous job.... More

We love this course and were disappointed with the condition. The greens had been sanded so you can't read them and, obviously, the ball picks up sand as it rolls and every put is a challenge. The fairways had lateral cuts on them just like someone had driven an old fashioned tractor with lugs on it over them. We commented... More

Very challenging golf course. Loved every minute of it. Plays very long with humidity and winds. A must.

This was an excellent opportunity to play where the pros play. The course is beautiful and very challenging. The staff was awesome from the pro shop to the starter to the cart people. I was thanked several times for playing the course. While not a cheap round it was very enjoyable as a special day.

Greens fee is steep but I did the weekend warrior package and played three rounds and on a per play cost, made it very reasonable. Every hole has an absolutely stunning view and course layout makes it fun to play.

The views alone are sufficient to warrant the 5 star rating, however add to that the superb golf course and it's a win all round. I was impressed by the service, particularly from the starter who was informative and friendly. He checked on us numerous times throughout our round to see how we were enjoying the course. Yes this is... More

A truly phenomenal aesthetic experience. The slope and unpredictability of the greens make for a challenging round but the care of them is lacking. They look and run similar to a nice public course, but it is a forgivable offense in such a spectacular setting. The staff was above average, but not to the level of the $325 Green's fee.

One of the most beautiful golf courses I've ever been to (have been to many). The views are stunning from every hole. You do not get tired of this golf course, we played 3 rounds in 5 days. The course is challenging especially if the trade winds are blowing. Staff at the golf courses attentive. We used a caddy for... More
