Great conditions, pure greens, fast play

Had a great time on this challenging layout course! Early tee time of 6:50am we played in just under 4 hours with foursome. Greens were rolling very true and overall in excellent condition. Highly recommend this course, great value especially compared to the other resort style courses. Staff was super friendly, will definitely be back. .

Challenging Course

Very challenging course, but fair. The trade winds can beat you up. It's a beautiful track that will have you saying "I want a rematch". Don't overthink it, but follow the yardage book that is provided. I can't wait till I return next year to give it another try.

Wonderful golf experience!

Beautiful course. Dramatic scenery from surrounding mountains. Very hilly, fun, interesting course that required some thinking as you moved around the varying slopes. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Easy to access. Course was very convenient from our rental home on the north shore.

Great value, great course

Was in excellent condition. In comparison to the other courses on the island, I think this far and away the best value for your money. The hills and sand dunes make for a great layout with a lot of variety. The greens were also in great shape.

Dunes at Maui Lani

The course overall was in good shape and presented a good challenge. Several of the holes are a bit funky in the fact you cannot see your landing area and the slope of the fairway. The greens for the most part were in good shape save for a couple that were very patchy which made for bouncy putts. I enjoyed the course and will play it again in the future.

Great course

I loved it. The greens were really well kept. Friendly staff. Back 9 is way harder but really cool holes. Would come play again. I wish it was cheaper though.

Great course

This is a great course. Disappointed that they just plugged the greens the day before and it didn’t disclose that info when we booked our tee times online. Not the courses fault.
