The best and most challenging course on Maui. It is not enjoyable when the wind is howling but a real treat on calm days. A few showers will not ruin the play and the course has so many different holes that you do not see any repeats, nor any back to backs like at Wailea. It is always in great condition when we are there which is Jan/Feb.

Played twice on that outing. First round in rainy and windy conditions, second time around in perfect weather. Greens were about to be replaced, so it was tough to get around the fringe. Trick was not to wind up on the fringe!!! A great experience, as the pace of play was good on both days. Have not returned to Maui. Have chosen to stay and play on the Big Island.

I love this course. I played it 4 times this April. The only negative was that the greens had been recently aerated, so were a bit bumpy. Absolutely beautiful!

This has been one of my favorite courses through the years, but my last experience was not impressive. Course maintenance not as good as in years past. And the pace of play was like a muni course. We had 4 x foursomes on one par 3! Took ranger 20 minutes to get out to hole only to tell us there was nothing he could do. Really don't expect this from a course of this level/potential. Poor value. We couldn't finish the 18!
