Tons of Fun

It has been a long time since we played this course. A pleasure to do so again. Right from the start the Starter was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The pro shop staff was also top notch. When you play in Maui, you expect the wind, and it didn't disappoint, nor did it detract from the beauty and challenge of playing here. I have 2 more rounds set and am really looking forward to teeing it up again. A must play.

Pace of Play

I believe management should not allow 5 some to play on a Saturday morning. They need a Marshall to make sure pace of play is occurring and keep people moving.

MAUI NUI

Great course for average to experienced golfers. Staff is great and very friendly. GPS on carts give yardage and info on blind tee shots. Would recommend to anyone coming to the island.

Better than expecdted

For the price the course is excellent. We have paid twice as much for worse courses. The carts all have excellent GPS and the staff is great. The greens are slow but true. The beverage cart came by frequently. We had a great time. My wife and I were both close to net 72 so the course handicap is honest.

Maui Nui a Great Find!

Maui Nui was a great find when compared to other more pricey golf on the island. Walking up to the pro shop I liked the casual vibe with great tunes playing. There was a mix up with my reservation during check in but the gal in the pro shop kindly offered me the resident rate! There was no waiting so I teed off early and enjoyed a pleasant round of golf with my husband. The pace of play was extraordinarily fast...around 3.5 hours. I am a 17 handicap and the course worked well with my game. I was able to reach most greens in regulation from the red tees and posted an 85... the best round I have hand in a long while.

Pace

The pace of play was rediculous “IF” we’d played #10, would have been 3 1/2 to there. They really need a marshal to fix whatever the problem was.

Golf on Maui

Golfing in Maui in June for this "Oregon Boy"can be a little warm... I mean HOT!! Tee time was at 7:24 am and they let name go off early because there was no-one teeing off. I was by myself. 18 hole Rond took only 3 hours. there are a couple of holes that are a little confusing. Lucky that on the second 9 was joined by a "local" who knew the course quite well. It Helped.
