Wailea Golf Club (Gold course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1994

The Wailea Golf Club is home to three 18-hole championship golf courses, which include the highly-ranked Gold course and the also well-rated and popular Emerald and Blue courses.

The Gold course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in the Hawaiian Islands. The layout is considered the most challenging of Wailea’s trio, with a rugged and demanding design taking advantage of the terrain’s natural undulations. Here you can enjoy spectacular vistas of the ocean, Molokini islet, ancient lava rock walls and plenty of coconut palms along the way.

This tree-lined parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.
