When does the course close throughout the year for overseeding the fairways and greens?
Can you bring your own cooler with drinks and snacks on the emerald course?
Aloha from the Wailea Golf Club! Thank you for your inquiry. Outside food and beverage is not permitted at our facility. Your cart will have a cooler attached and it will be stocked with ice and 2 bottles of water. There are water refill stations on the course about every 3 holes. Gannon's Restaurant is located in our Gold and Emerald clubhouse, and they also operate the snack carts on the course. You can purchase food, soft drinks, and beer/wine/cocktails from the beverage cart. They also have a great happy hour and one of the best views on Maui for your 19th hole. We hope to welcome you to the Wailea Golf Club soon!
What is the difference between the blue, emerald, and gold courses? Are some nicer than others? Do they have different skill levels? Thanks!
The Emerald and Gold courses are the most beautiful and resort like. They share a clubhouse with a great, upbeat and pleasant staff. Of these 2, the Emerald is easier to play, the gold has more character and is preferred by better players. Both have holes with nice views of the ocean. The blue course is long and open. Some views of the ocean as well. Generally less busy and used as a warm up course. Starters are great, pro shop is not as welcoming. Some would use Kahili instead of the blue - great staff, less expensive, great views and good local restaurant.
We are staying at Ho'Olei 4/25/17 to 5/3/17. I golf but my wife doesn't. What day and good time could we go out where it is just my wife and I in our own group by ourselves? Do they charge for a rider fee?
Yes, there is a fee for riders; you'd have to contact the the golf course. The afternoons would be less crowded.
Thank you for your review. It's very helpful. I'm researching where to play golf in Maui. I'll be there in a couple of weeks. My question is do you know at what time interval they send people out? I only have 1 chance to play. I don't mind paying a little more if I don't have to wait at each tee box. Thanks again.
They are at 10 min intervals, I've played it in 3 hours and 5 hours. Typical is 4:15 Marshals are good, Gold and Emerald are not too difficult, always in great shape and little wind in am. Weekdays are best as we locals get out early, however in prime season our rates are higher so we play other courses. Enjoy.
What is the dress code? Is it khaki pants or shorts with a golf shirt? And do you have a resturante by chance?
Aloha Steve W, thank you for your questions and interest in the Wailea Golf Club. Khaki pants or shorts with a collared golf shirt are perfectly acceptable. Due to our warm climate shorts may be more comfortable. We request no denim, exercise, or swim/beachwear on the golf courses. All three golf courses are available to the public, and suitable for golfers of all ability levels. Our Gold course is the most challenging, and you might enjoy trying the Emerald or Blue. If you are only playing one round of golf while visiting us, the Emerald is the overall favorite for setting, views, and playability. We have member blocks on 2 of the 3 courses each morning which open up 5 days in advance, usually on the Gold and Blue courses. Public tee times are available starting around 9 am after the block on the 2 member courses, and as early as 6:52 on the non-member course. Guests can book tee times 30 days in advance via our telephone reservations, and 45 days in advance on our website. We have great restaurants/19th holes at each of our clubhouses. Gannon's Restaurant and Red Bar is located at the Gold and Emerald clubhouse, and Manoli's is located at the Blue clubhouse. Mahalo, we hope to see you soon!
