If you are a fan of old-style golf and architecture, the Old Blue Course at Wailea Golf Club on Maui is a must-play. That's without even considering the spectacular views, lush foliage, strategic ponds and coral sand bunkers. Today, Wailea is also home to the Wailea Gold and Emerald Courses, five stunning white crescent beaches, five-star resorts, the Shops at Wailea, Wailea Tennis Club, panoramic vistas with the occasional whale pod breaching out in the channel and a warm spirit of aloha.

There's the ocean backdrop, the topography, the lava rock walls, 200 feet of elevation changes, tall native grasses, 92 difficult bunkers and just enough doglegs to make you carve some shots. David R. Holland has more from Wailea.

A winding road rising up the mountain leads players to a golf course that is filled with challenges -- and dramatic views. It's a private club, but players can enjoy all the amenities the club has to offer with its member-for-a-day program.

A look into the brief history of King Kamehameha Golf Club in Maui reads like a Hollywood screenplay, featuring Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller and Frank Lloyd Wright. At now it appears the story is nearing a happy ending. Thanks to new owner Makoto Kaneko, who revived the property in 2005, King Kamehameha G.C. is finally filling up. And the club's member-for-a-day green fee beckons the Hawaiian golf traveler, Brandon Tucker writes.

Royal Course at Ka'anapali Golf Resort on Maui gets the majority of the rave reviews. But players need to remember its sister Kai Course is also a tremendous challenge. From breathtaking views and scenery to enough rolling fairways and undulating greens, it's a course that will leave you wanting more, especially in the wake of recent renovations by Robin Nelson.

The Kai course at Ka'anapali Golf Resort in Lahaina, Hawaii serves up the same top quality conditions and scenery as Royal Ka'anapali, it just comes in a bit shorter and at a slightly lower price tag. While lower handicaps can still get their fix of good hole variety and some tough shots, the Kai is meant to be enjoyed by those who don't want big numbers to ruin their day in paradise. The Kai is every bit as scenic as the Royal but presents some unique characteristics, like the Sugar Cane Train tracks.

Royal Ka'anapali dates back long before many of Maui's championship golf courses opened, and it continues to pass the test of time. The Robert Trent Jones Sr. design is the most consistent blend of championship-caliber, resort friendly golf that can be found in Maui, Brandon Tucker writes from Hawaii.

Royal Ka'anapali Golf Course is one of only two Robert Trent Jones Sr. designs on Maui. Since Bing Crosby opened the course with a tee shot in 1962, Royal Ka'anapali hasn't missed a beat. From start to finish -- the 18th is one of the most challenging finishing holes in golf -- you'll enjoy Royal Ka'anapali, David R. Holland writes.
