Fun, Fast, Challenging Greens
Great value for the money on golf now. Greens are awesome and views are good.
Fun, Fast, Challenging Greens
Golf now price is half Kaanapali price...great value. Nice views, fast and fun greens. Bunkers are rough but playable...I think views are better on Kai than Royal. With Covid no services at course or on course, bring beers, water and food
If you’re on vacation in Maui you will love this course. Fair price and great greens. The rental clubs were very nice as well.
Had a couple circles on the card. Windy conditions- tricky fast greens
Love Kaanapali Royal
This was a great bargain through Golf Now. Kaanapali Royal is an outstanding course and we played in less than 4 hours.
We are really pleased you enjoyed your time here at Kaanapali and agree that it is a special place!
If I had to play at 10:00 am I’d rather give my $175 to Wailea Old Blue. It’s in better condition.
I bookeda $99 rate at 2:30, showed up an hour early and got out right away. There aren’t many players in that noon to 2:00 bracket.
Thank you for playing at the Twilight time! We are happy that we got you out early as well on the Kai Course. The Royal Course is a great option for your next visit and available at the same rate as the aforementioned course.
Don’t play twilight.
I am writing this review as I’m playing my round, so that should telL you about the pace of play. We have waited on every single shot since the 4th hole. No Marshall. Today I am playing the royal. I played the Kai a couple days ago and it was the same thing. Course layout is good. Conditions of fairways and greens are descent. Bunkers are like concrete. Tee box’s are not good. I haven’t played in the morning but my guess is it’s not much better. I’d look elsewhere. I won’t be back.
Aloha, it would be great to get more feedback on your experience. It is our goal to help as much as possible. Please let us know if we can help via email. Mahalo
Love playing Kaanapali courses
I had great time playing Kaanapali Kai especially at the rate I got through Golf Now.
Nice course in great condition
Nice course in great condition. Fair landing areas off the tees with greens well protected by bunkers. Pace was a little slow but the views made it no problem. Small driving range with mats only but large practice greens. A little over priced but would play it again.
Aloha, thank you for playing at Kaanapali! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again on Maui.
Excellent resort golf
Challenging layout, great setting. Course was in terrific condition. Teeing off at 12:42 PM, we played in less than four hours. Driving range is weak, but everything else was first rate.
Aloha and mahalo for coming out to Kaanapali! We are happy that you enjoyed your time.
I would of liked a credit to play another course. It was brutal with high winds and rain. You can’t get a refund unless the course closes. Which probably will never happen. I’ll think twice about using Golf Now for rounds in the future.
Aloha, we can empathize with playing in rough weather as it is not typical for Maui. However, we do have options directly at the course and will welcome you for the future. Please contact us direct and we'll do our best to help. -Mahalo
Enjoyable course layout
I decided to play the tips as I find it offers the most scenic views. Played the cheaper Kai course. Teed off at 1:50 pm and struggled to get all 18 in as we were following a threesome with a beginner lady golfer. I hope the new 54 handicap doesn't encourage more high handicappers to play on championship courses as it really ruins the experience. Par 70, over 6,300 yards, although numerous tees had been moved up. W
indy conditions. Only about 5 holes on the flat lower grounds and the rest are on the side of the volcanic ashes making for entertaining holes with great vistas. The greens were running fast and true and were very soft from all the rain. Beautiful views of volcanic mountains and a late afternoon finish provided some great light for photos. Sand traps were fair and sand quality was good for getting it up and down. Not many water hazards on the course.
Spend your money elsewhere
We got to the 13th tee box 25 minutes behind time. We played at 13:02. Tells you something about the pace of play. Very frustrating. Course in good condition generally but there couldn’t have been more than 2 players in front of us who knew how to fix a ballmark on the green, or a divot on the fairways. Pro shop has some great duds though. The trade winds and the showers are part on the game here, so can’t complain about that. It comes with the territory. But it sure does make for some incredible rainbows!
Good layout and not to difficult. Greens were in great shape along with nice fairways. Will try to play the Royal course next time as looks a little bit nicer but this one was good too.
We played this course to get something different than the Plantation and Bay in Kapalua. The course was in very good condition. The views were nice, but I had been spoiled by the Plantation and Bay Course views at Kapalua by the time we played this one. There was also a lot of foot traffic near the hotels surrounding the first and last holes, as I suppose most tourists may not realize that a golf course is not a walking park. It was worth playing for the price and a change of pace.
Aloha and thank you for playing at Kaanapali!
