Detailed description of Kaanapali Golf Course, Royal Kaanapali

Kaanapali Golf Course, is a Resort, 36 hole golf course facility located in LAHAINA, Hawaii. The 2 courses are the Royal Kaanapali (North) Course, and Kaanapali Kai (South) Course.

The Royal Kaanapali (North) Course opened its lush fairways in 1962 and is one of only two courses in all of Hawaii designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The architect took advantage of the rolling landscape to create gently sloping fairways and large contoured greens to ensure a challenging approach to each hole. Stretching 6,700 yards, this par 71 course will challenge your club selection and putting skills.

The Royal Kaanapali Course begins at sea level with a par 5 hole extending 550 yards. The course hugs the shoreline before winding its way to the West Maui Mountain foothills. Arnold Palmer called the 18th hole (par 4) one of the best and most challenging finishing holes he'd ever played. The 449 yard hole plays longer than it looks, hugging the brackish water canal the entire length of the fairway and green, making it a memorable last hole.

Since the remodel a couple of years ago, this has become one tough moter to play well on! The greens will eat your lunch if you are not very carefull. Fantastic views to help take your mind off how poorly you are playing. When the wind blows... hang on.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
