Golf

In addition to having great beaches, Maui is one of the world's premier golf destinations with each course offering a perfect blend of forgiveness and challenge combined with stunning views of the deep blue Pacific and surrounding islands. Several PGA and Senior PGA golf tournaments are held each year on Maui's courses. And South Maui has the perfect weather to go with the best golf in Hawaii.

There are 4 great courses within 6 miles of the condo. They are the Wailea Old Blue Golf Club, Wailea Emerald Course, Wailea Gold Course,
Maui Golf Map
and Maui Nui Golf Club (old Elleair). In addition, within 23 miles there are Kahili, Dunes at Maui Lani, Pukalani, and Waiehu. I've personally played all of these courses and they are great. It's hard to decide which to play.

Depending on the season, the courses can be quite busy so I recommend you reserve a date and time in advance.

Listed in order of distance from our condo, check out the individual courses below.

Maui Nui Golf Club
Maui Nui Golf Club

 Maui Nui Golf Club

18 Holes; Par 71; 6404 yards. Distance away - 3.0 Miles



This course opened in 1987, and was originally known as Silversword, then Elleair Golf Club before becoming the Maui Nui Golf Club. The trade winds hit the course usually in the mornings and late afternoons, and the course was designed with this in mind as many of the holes bring the wind into play.

The first course ever built in Wailea, the stately Blue is a gracious resort course that has been ranked among America's best resort courses by Golf Digest. In its lifetime, it has hosted such prestigious events as the LPGA Women's Kemper Open and Japan's Asahi-Kyosen pro/celebrity golf tournament.

18 Holes; Par 72; 6841 yards. Distance away - 13.7 Miles



The Dunes at Maui Lani Golf Course is built on million-year old sand dunes located in central Maui. Its 18 holes are unique to anything in America because of the terrain upon which they are set, and the design techniques which were deployed by the course's architect.
Wailehu Municipal
Waiehu Municipal

 Waiehu Municipal

18 Holes; Par 72, 6330 yards. Distance away - 18.2 Miles

Waiehu Golf Course overlooks a stunning tourmaline blue sea with the famous Waihe’e Reef in sight just offshore. The front nine holes play along the water while the back nine move up to a hillier area with ocean views. Waiehu Golf Course hosted the 1996 USGA Amateur Links Championship, and several local leagues regularly hold events there. This is a county course so you'll need to call the club house for reservations and pricing. 808-270-2400
Pukalani Country Club
Pukalani Country Club
 Pukalani Country Club

18 Holes; Par 72; 6882 yards. Distance away - 22.3 Miles



Pukalani's fairways are wide and hilly, and its greens are fast and sloped. The course is located at 1,100 feet in elevation, resulting in cooler playing conditions. The biggest challenges come from the wind and elevation changes. The high elevation provides some great views of the Island of Maui.
