Ka’anapali Resort (Royal Ka’anapali course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Ka’anapali Resort (Royal Ka’anapali course): The Ka’anapali Kai and Royal Ka'anapali courses are two well-rated and pleasantly testing resort-style layouts. Both courses offer scenic ocean and inland mountain views, although both are predominantly set back from the ocean behind the plentiful resort accommodations. Only the long par-4 5th on the Royal course serves-up a true oceanside hole (overlooking May's Beach).

The Royal course (once known as the Tournament North course) begins with a testing par-5 that hugs the side of a small lake, before the layout takes you behind the resort hotels to the wonderful oceanside par-4 5th. From there the out-and-back design winds its way up into the West Maui mountain foothills.

At the par-4 18th you'll finish alongside the same small lake that threatened so menacingly at the 1st. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this Robert Trent Jones Sr course.

Stay & Play at Ka'anapali: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

In ancient times Kaanapali, which means "rolling cliffs" in Hawaiian, was a royal retreat for the rulers of Maui. They delighted in the perfect three-mile stretch of white sand beach, the gentle waves, warm sunny days and the inspiring backdrop of the majestic West Maui Mountains. Today the beach is skirted by a boardwalk, condos, hotels, iconic black cliffs and a retail village.
