Kapalua Golf Resort, is a Resort, 36 hole golf course facility located in NAPILI, Hawaii. The facility has 2, 18-hole golf courses, The Bay Course and The Plantation Course. A third course, The Village course, was closed in 2007.
The Bay Course first opened for play in 1975. The course was designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane.
The Bay Course at Kapalua in Maui offers a contrast to the sweeping vistas and changing elevations of the nearby Kapalua Plantation Course. One of the more striking holes is the par-3 #5, which defines the name Kapalua, meaning "arms embracing the sea" as it carries over a small inlet of crashing surf. #16 carries over a pond to a split fairway, is considered one of Hawaii's best par 4s. A number of the other holes also offer ocean views.
The Bay Course is a 6,600-yard par 72 with gently rolling fairways and generous greens. The course record is 62 set by Mike Sullivan in 1995 at the Lincoln-Mercury Kapalua International.

Great views and course in great condition (except the greens keeper got lazy and messy with this white paint in spraying the cup on several of the holes leaving white paint around the cup). It's expensive ($190+ tax) but if you can afford to go to Maui and eat at the restaurants you can afford to play golf at a great course. Hitting toward and over the ocean on two holes is Pebble Beach-like.

I love he Bay Course. Playing in late afternonn was perfect, especially coming down the 18th just before dusk. A tough course for me, but so enjoyable, terrain is certainly different than Plantation, a nice change. From a tee box on top of the water to playing with trees lining both sides of the fairways, its a treat. Will play again, if return to Maui. Beware: Warm up range uses light compression balls

I love this course, although I find it to be more difficult than the Plantation Course. I played here 3 times in April and more than 20 times overall. I will be back.
