My husband played the harder, more expensive course and said it was the best course he has ever played on (and the hardest). He said the views were amazing and the course was well maintained. If we had stayed longer, he would have played another day for sure!

If your going to play one of the two golf courses there, play the Royal. Nice course with beautiful back nine. Went out after 1 o'clock to get a better rate but winds do pick up in the afternoon. Very good value compared to the Kapalua courses. Was very pleasant track.

My wife and I played on both courses during the day. Our tee times were booked on line and were at a substantial discount over the rack rate. The pro shop personnel were warm and friendly. The outside service attendants were excellent We were able to play all 18 on the Kai course in the morning. We found the course... More

While it was a very hot day, and we were the only ones at the driving range. This was a fun activity for teenagers. The course was beautiful.

Kaanapali Golf Course has foot golf! You use a soccer ball and kick the ball to the tee. The tee is the size of a 5 gallon bucket. Great Fun! 9 holes was more than enough for us, but we all had a blast! Family, friends, kids of all ages will have fun.

We played both courses on a package deal to play both courses for $199 per person. A bit much for courses that were good but not fantastic. The staff was friendly and we played with some nice couples. The Royal course is more green and has actual restrooms whereas the Kai was also used as a soccer field and has... More

Fun Robert Trent Jones Sr. course, user friendly but a good challenge around the greens. Excellent views throughout the course but at 179 per round? Well, not that good. 100 bucks would be the most I'd pay and a great value at that price considering location and quality.

We played Royal in March 2015. The exchange rate with $Aus made it very expensive although we Played Arnold Palmer at Turtle Bay for much less while just playing as a couple the week before. The course was not really memorable baring one hole to the beach and if you knew where our home course is you would be surprised... More

We golfed at Kaanapali Kai and had the best time! The course is beautiful with some holes located in the hilly section and others overlooking the ocean. This course was challenging but not as long as the other course. We loved it and had a wonderful day! We are at Roy's afterwards and had a delicious meal!

I played the Royal Course in March 2016. Really enjoyed the course. Not crazy hard but plenty challenging. The Kai Course looked far less interesting. Greens were in fantastic shape. Oh, and the Nike Vapor rental clubs were great! It was expensive but that comes with the territory. A big benefit was my ability to walk from the hotel -... More
