What can you say , everything about this course was first class! Fairways and greens were immaculate, staff was very helpful and accommodating! We have tough conditions with 25 mile an hour wind and rain but it didn't matter the views and the golf course was worth it! Highly recommended when in Maui!

Visiting the Plantation course at Kapalua Golf Club, we chose to have lunch in the open air restaurant overlooking the 18th hole. Now the PGA tour will hold special interest. The service was prompt, the lunches were tasty, and the beer cold. Between four of us, there was fish and chips, calamari, turkey sandwich, and coconut shrimp. Presentation and flavors... More

We stayed in the golf villas, very well kept, and beautiful views. Four pools, restaurants and shops with a shuttle service.

The Wall Street Journal said visiting the Golf Academy 18 hole putting course was worth the trip. It's not. The putting surface is terrible. You rent a putter for $10 that is about 30 years old. Awful experience. Surprised the WSJ recommended it.

Ask for room 20 in the Ocean view villas. I can't imagine a better view on earth. Over 1200 square feet of luxury. We really had a great time!

Drove up to Kapalua to see first hand the course and lodging surrounding it. We were impressed by how gorgeous the resort and golf course have been maintained. I watch the PGA event played here each year and admire the beautiful settings.We up buying shirts and hats to remind us of our stay.

This pro shop is a hidden gem. Lots of hats (men, women and kids) as well as clothing items and souvenirs. Highly recommend. There is a general store across the road that sells prepared food, breakfast and coffee.

The Plantation Course has gained its fame not only from the televised PGA event played here each January but also from the spectacular setting. The course winds it way over spectacular terrain on the northwest corner of Maui with spectacular views over the ocean and to the island of Molokai. Count on holes that play significantly downhill and uphill as... More

My hubby and I like checking out golf courses. Drove up to Kapalua to see first hand the course and lodging surrounding it. We were impressed by how gorgeous the resort and golf course have been maintained. However, we also experienced much more wind and rain here (which I understand is more prevalent during winter). Bet it would be awesome... More

For what you pay you are expecting one of the great golf "experiences" of the world. What you get are some striking views but: 1. The ocean never comes into play like, say, Pebble Beach. 2. Service is poor. 3. Amenities on course e.g. Washrooms, snack shop at the turn are few or non-existent. 4. Selection on the food and... More
