Owner description: World-class golfing at the heart of Kaanapali Beach Resort, is home to the Senior PGA Tour EMC Kaanapali Classic.
Reviewed 22 November 2013

One of the pluses of playing either Kaanapali course is the beauty of the ocean, mountains, and manicured grounds. These are also negatives because for those easily distracted by such sights, your game may suffer. Lots of sand traps placed on the fairways and around the greens. If you miss the fairway, the rough is "rough" to get out of. It is a forgiving course with wide fairways, yet some tighter shots can add strokes when least expected. Yes, it is a resort course and is easy enough for you to want to return, yet tough enough to provide a challenge. Staff is great and fees are reasonable considering it is Maui. Speed of play was just right.

I surprised my husband with a round of golf and he thanked me a million times. I rode in the cart with him and I even had a great time. The course is so beautiful. A hard course, though, with lots and lots of sand pits!

We didn't golf, but visited the property. It is probably the best, most incredible view we had seen since we had gotten here. A must see!

The two courses - the Kai Championship Course and the Royal Courses are excellent courses for the resort golfer as they allow the player to set the standard of challenge.
They both have many holes with lovely sweeping views of the surrounding hills and coastal areas, views of the Sugar Cane Train as it passes through and are very well maintained throughout the heart.
As both courses have 3 - 4 tee positions on each hole the individual golfer can (if the ego permits) to set a standard that affords both challenge and some tangible reward for good shotmaking.
The staff are all long term professionals in every way, e.g. cart staff, starter and shop staff.
The Pro Shop is well equipped with a good range of quality brand and logoed merchandise for those wanting to take something home that says "I was here."
I play both courses each time I am in the area and thoroughly enjoy myself. If you are looking for a course that provides the same challenges as Augusta National your might be disappointed, however if you are look for a course that will punish and reward and be enjoyable even if your game isn't absolute on the mark it you will enjoy the round especially if you take your own cheer squad with you.
