Love the course, not the starter.

My wife and I love playing this course. Unfortunately the starter is always rude and snarky when checking in. Never does Buff greet us with a warm welcoming reception. He acts like we are a burden, even after giving him a tip. It puts a real damper on our round. otherwise the course is a nice layout. Went to the Dunes at Maui Lani and the starter was very nice.

Fun track!

My wife and I enjoy playing here when we visit Maui. The course is challenging but fair. The greens are quick and some of them are tricky. We play in the morning. Pace of play has always been good.

Another Great day @ Maui Nui

I have played this course for years and have to say its in the best condition ever. Like most courses they were shut down for a couple of months due to the so called Pandemic. That gave the course a chance to heal, especially the greens. I would give the conditions a straight 5 but the local pigs have been uprooting the wetter areas of the course looking for grubs. Fortunately those wet areas are generally not in play, it just looks bad, but does not play bad. The only real problem is that the restaurant/bar went under due to the pandemic. Hopefully that will be solved soon.

Avoid the Starter. Not possible?

Played this course over the years so many times. So many great holes and memories. On our last trip seven or so rounds. Love the course and the gorgeous drive to it from Kahana. But the starter...OMG
Real power tripper. We had to give hime a nickname - MP. AKA Buff, I think.
Checked in for our 8:52 am tee time only to find out of the rain delay till ten. No problem. We are in Maui and this is our only concrete plan for the day.
Got back after a coffee shop run and settled into our golf cart well before ten. "STAND BY, STAND BY, STAND BY" Buff shouted at us. Stand by for what? Turns out Buff had to send out the regulars with 10;04, 10:14 etc. tee times. I approached him and ask why are we being punished. He asked the golf shop pro, sweet guy named Joe, to "SHOW THESE TWO THE BACK NINE". Really? "These two'?
We felt very much mistreated. Maybe because we booked with GOLFNOW?
Worst experience on our 5 weak trip.
We truly wish Buff a happy retirement and a happier life. Shaka

Great course, great value

While it is t wailea, mostly because the views aren’t as amazing, it’s a really fun course with great people. Nice and challenging layout, while still being great for my kids (9 & 11). Definitely recommend is staying in wailea and want to avoid the high price of the Wailea courses.
