Great golf outing, unfortunately not open to public anymore

New ownership has reportedly taken course private when it reopens after remodeling. Too bad for us locals, great course.

The course overlooks the ocean and it is gorgeous. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Great place to spend part of your Maui vacation.

I've been playing this course for years. I golf when the twilight rates kick in. If your in Maui and want to golf do your self a favor and golf this course. The course is not easy but a lot of fun golf shots. The par 5 14th is my favorite hole in golf. I talk to a lot of... More

Really enjoyable course with fantastic views of Molokini and Kaho' Olawe. The course was in good shape, some very challenging holes. It had a good range and practise area. The course was closing in a week after I played for a total recondition, expected to open again during 1st quarter 2014. It can only get better. The club house was... More

Great place if you want to spend less on supper. "Pub style" food was good and excellent portions for their salads. Best place to watch the sunset! We were present for Mr. Darren Lee's Elvis show which was awesome too!

An interesting tract..quite a bit of target golf with fantastic views of Molokini and West Maui. Greens were in good shape altho difficult for a northerner to get use to the grain. Some spots on the course are looking pretty worn out. They used to have 36 holes here but the south course has been shut down. Perhaps money issues... More

Super hot, super sunny, super views, but a tad pricey. On the dry side of Maui this is a desert course, with desert like vegetation on a sloped mountain side. Fantastic vistas make up for an otherwise average course layout.

My wife and I stayed at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort to take advantage of their golf deal for those staying at the resort: free rental clubs (and shoes if you want) and a discount price. The clubs were Callaway. They were good but a bit used. We played on three days. The greens were in good shape, but... More

Played the other day, the pro shop was great, the cart guy's were even better, but the course was lacking. The course has the potential to be incredible, it's just needs to be better maintained.
