Good resort course

Second time playing this course. Fairly recent since punching the greens so they were rough. Also the sand traps had been watered and were near,ly unplayable. Rest of course was fine

Great course for all skill levels

My fondest golf course memories come from Hawaii and this was no exception. Sweeping views of Ka’anapali and the course itself was in great condition. Not the longest course but plenty of challenging slopes and a couple of holes with water in play. First group out at 6:45am and the round was done in less than 4 hours. Highly recommend!

Nearly Perfect day on the Kai Course

My husband and I were paired with a lovely young couple from Kansas City. We enjoyed our round tremendously. Only glitch was that the GPS for both twosomes in our group was not working. It was a warm and windy June day and was literally raining bugs. They were landing.in our drinks and in my eye. We have always played in September and this has never been an issue before.
The staff were exquisitely helpful. Thank you Celeste and Michael.

Fun at the Kaanapali Kai

The staff was outstanding, especially the starter John. It was very challenging that day due to the wind so Club selection is more difficult. But that's the game of golf.
