Ka’anapali Resort (Royal Ka’anapali course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

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.

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.
