Kapalua Resort (Bay course)

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

Est. 1974

Kapalua Resort (Plantation course): Located on the northeast coast of the Hawaiian Island of Maui, the spectacular Kapalua Resort is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses. The highly-rated Plantation course, a regular early-season stop on the PGA Tour, is complemented by the easier-going and also well-rated Bay course.

The Bay course is a tree-lined parkland layout that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. The layout winds its way through towering palms and flowering hibiscus. At the par-3 5th your tee shot will need to carry the glistening waters of Oneloa Bay to find the safety of the green. With its uninterrupted views of the Pacific and gentle rolling fairways, the Bay Course provides plenty of plenty of golfing challenge in a well-crafted design. Good upkeep also contributes to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
