About
Set in the gentle hillsides of "Up-Country" Maui, Pukalani Country Club overlooks the Pacific Ocean and offers breath-taking panoranic views of the Valley Isle of Maui. The Pukalani Country Club is nestled at the 1,100 foot elevation level of world famous Mount Haleakala, an extinct volcano whose name in Hawaiian means "House of the Rising Sun" and is appropriately reflected as the golf course's logo. Pukalani's 18 holes were designed by golf course architect Bob Baldock who designed more than 69 public and private golf courses throughout the United States. The Pukalani Country Club's greenery covers nearly 160 acres. Built in 1980, the course is 6,962 yards long from the championship tees, plays to a par 72, and features 19 greens in its 18-hole layout! On hole #3, golfers may choose a tough iron shot across a ravine and into the wind for one green, or a challenging chip shot straight down to a well-trapped green several hundred feet below into the ravine. No other golf course in Hawaii can compare or offer you this unique setting and challenge of our hole #3. "Pukalani" which in Hawaiian means "Entrance to Heaven" certainly describes Pukalani Country Club!

Excellent value and great golf, especially the greens.
Sep 2021
Don't be put off by the parking lot and clubhouse trailer. One you get on the course, your viewpoint changes almost immediately. When I got to the first green, it was large and and smooth. I thought this might have been the only good green but hole after hole the greens were great. I had played the expensive Wailea Gold course the previous day and Pukulani's greens were better. There are surprising elevation changes and interesting variety of holes. If I'm ever back in Maui, I'll play here first, not last. Excellent value.

Don’t play here.
May 2021 • Family
I called to see if a single player could get on, the pro shop said sure be here before 11am. I said awesome. I arrived in the pro shop at 11:48am. The starter said no you can’t get in or play come back in 2 hours. I said “wow I drove 25 mins here for nothing. Terrible service. Being that I work in the tourist industry and run the front drive of one of Hawai’i’s most popular hotels that is not good. Pukalani won’t be offered as one of the choices from of our guest.

Aloha, Thank you for your time to write a review on Trip Advisor. This experience you are writing about was during Covid-19 Restrictions which did NOT allow us to book single golfers for tee times. We are now able to book singles, please call or email us to book a single. I am sorry you had this poor experience however we were following the protocol restrictions Maui County issued. Please give us another attempt. Ron Huffman, PGA

Great course
Dec 2020 • Friends
Great course and very well kept. Rivals some of the most expensive courses on the island with their A+ maintenance and course care. Course rewards you when you hit it straight and challenges you if you're struggling to keep it in the fairway. Bermuda greens are very well kept. I've played a lot of the most expensive courses on this island and this is by far the best deal. For price, course quality and layout, it's the best deal on the island.

Aloha, Mahalo for taking the time to write such a kind review of Pukalani Country Club. The golf course is very friendly but may be challenging should your ball go astray. Over the past five years the golf course's condition has improved dramatically. We hope to see you sooner than later at Pukalani Country Club.

Pukulani Terrific Tuesday
Dec 2020 • Friends
Pukalani is a great find! The course has beautiful views of Maui and is well maintained. The Terrific Thursday deal is the best on the Island! It is definitely worth the drive to Upcountry.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful course!
Dec 2020 • Family
Just had a beautiful day at the course! We have been lucky enough to come play Pukalani a couple times and it never disappoints. The staff is very nice and you just cant beat the “Terrific Thursday” visitor rate for $45. After the round of golf we had a delicious lunch and cold drinks to end a perfect day! Thank you Pukalani Golf Course! See you next year.

Early Tee Times
Mar 2020
I found this course years ago and it has become my Maui home course. It reminds me of the course our club plays at in Lemont, IL. The course is in great shape . It's a tough par 70 course. The tight fairways and interesting greens makes for a formidable experience. The people there make the experience great. I especially like Tassie who checks you in and Jack and Steve the starters on alternate days. If your here for more than a month you may want to invest in their 30 day players pass. It's a great bargain! I highly recommend it and you will do yourself a disservice if you don't try it once on your time on Maui.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of Pukalani Country Club. We are still selling the 30 Day Aloha Passes for $299.00 and a $25.00 cart fee for every round during the 30 Day period, GREAT DEAL! I will pass along your Aloha to our maintenance team members and to Tassie, Jack and Steve. We hope to see you again soon. Mahalo,

Great greens (@ least 9)
Feb 2020 • Friends
Two days ago, February 16, we played our annual round at Pukalani Golf course. We were delighted with the greens on the front 9. It appears they have been redone and are the nicest greens we have seen on this trip so far

The greens on the back 9 were not as good which was disappointing but still Pukalani is still on our list of courses to play every year.

We hope to see you back soon than later at Pukalani Country Club. Mahalo,

A very pleasant surprise !
Feb 2020
We almost cancelled our tee time after reading some of the reviews. Glad we didn't. The course is wide open but challenging and though not the caliber of the marquis courses has nothing to apologize for. Our round was under 41/2 hours. The course was in good shape and the greens, though tough, were fair and played well. Don't be fooled by the prices - this course compares to those charging double their rates.

Fun Golf Course for the price!!
Jan 2020
We went on a Thursday for the all day special rate of $69 per person. The course is long and has beautiful vistas of the Maui valley. The front nine was in better shape than the back nine on the day we played the course. Overall worth a stop for something different and significantly less expensive than the Maui resort golf courses.

We arrive early for breakfast which was good; served on a patio of the main building (which is a large manufactured housing building).

Excellent golf course!! Friendly, helpful staff!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We chose this course because of the much lower greens fees. We were not disappointed!! The course was in excellent shape and had a great layout. The more expensive courses don’t seem worth the money when you can play here and pay half the price. Beautiful views on every hole. And the pro shop staff went above and beyond (shoutout to Tassie who held onto a bag of golf supplies I accidentally left and had to come back for the next day)!
