I had the great opportunity to play the Gold course with my son. Our family vacationed to Maui in July. Because of our son's Asst. PGA status, we were very fortunate to play a course that otherwise is out of reach for many.

The course was solid. It was long from the tips, about 7,000 yards, so there were plenty of long shots into the green. The rolling and undulating topography was especially challenging if that is something you are not used to. A good shot could end up in a bad place and bad shot in a good place, so patience was the order of the day. The views were noteworthy and you were able to see things only for those golfing there would be able to see.

The staff was very hospitable and accommodating. We had rental clubs and when I asked if there was a putter option, one of the outside specialists said, "Normally, what's in the bag is what you have to play with, but let me go check on something." I wasn't being overly picky, it was a putter shape and style that I had never played with. With that said, the kid brings me his own Scottie Cameron putter and says, "How about this one?" I told him it was perfect and promptly took care of him. The putter was my friend that day.

Overall: It was a great experience. The course is definitely worth playing. I think one would have to look at cost and what time of day to play. We got lucky with a 10 AM tee time that ended just as the trade winds were making their presence known. As for our game? The kid shot 75, the old man 95, but the day was memorable and I wouldn't trade a thing. Well, maybe a couple of shots here and there. :)

Played the gold and emerald courses using the mid week package deal. Also used the rental club deal that ran only $30 a day. Courses are in good shape and had nice views. Greens take some time to get the hang of and are somewhat slow. Using the package deal, the golf is unlimited if conditions allow and we played 27 holes on two of the three days. Pace of play was fine and very friendly staff--I'm sure they are glad to see some tourists back.

Got the first twilight spot at 3 PM and with nobody in my group and a several holes clear, I completed in 2:30. I wouldn't expect this regularly, but seems the most popular schedule is golf in the morning and pool in the afternoon with many of the guests, so this worked in my favor. The course is in great shape. I did play Emerald last year and liked that just a little better as I remember a little more elevation changes. But Gold is top notch.

We played the Gold Course at their twi-light rate and had a good time. The course conditions were good and the golf course is not tough for the average golfer to enjoy. If you're in Maui looking for a good time golfing, try this or any of the other Wailea courses for fun and views...

My wife and I visited Maui this past February before the pandemic hit the Islands. I played golf at Wailea Golf Club with my cousin who lives in Kahului. We had a very enjoyable afternoon on a scenic layout. Our wives met us at Gannon’s after the round for an extended Happy Hour dinner at sunset. It was a good way to top off our trip to Maui.

Amazing experience here on the Emerald Course. The course was in great condition. The greens were slow, put some weight behind those putts. Can’t wait to do it again. The staff treated me like a pro. The rented clubs reminded me that I need to upgrade my gear when I get home. Huge thank you to the entire team at the WGC.

We just recently played the Gold and Emerald courses, and played the Blue course 2 or 3 times on our previous trips.

They are all beautiful courses with amazing views.

Blue - is the easiest of the three, with wide fairways and more forgiving layout. So, we enjoyed playing this course when we were newer to the golf. This course does not have a practice driving range.

Gold and Emerald share the same club house and has a nice driving range. I thought they are similar, both have fabulous ocean views, and both courses are more challenging than Blue.

Gold is a bit more challenging compared to Emerald with longer and narrower fairways, and more hazards.

Emerald is very similar to Gold, just slightly easier, and with even better ocean views.

We loved playing at all three courses. If you are a novice, play the Blue. If you want to play holiday golf, and enjoy good views, play Emerald, if you enjoy a little challenge in your golf game, play the Gold.

They are only getting a 4 stars from me due to service. We did not encounter friendly service as was expected.

Golfed Wailea Gold today. Very sad. Got the greens punched two months ago and you can still see the holes in the green. The greens are bumpy and do not roll properly. What is going on?? After two week with proper water and fertilizer the greens should be lush. Not so……..This has been like this for quite a while. Why does Blue have the best greens , yet it is considered the least prestigious of the the three? Very sad that such an interesting course is not properly cared for.
