The teeth of the dog

Here's where it gets real. This is the toughest of the 3 courses at Wailea. Loved every minute of it.
Staff remembered me, after playing the Emerald course earlier. Made me feel welcome.
It is hard to keep your focus on this course, with the views of the ocean and Molikini on almost every hole.
The gold course has a large amount of bunkers, that seem to jump out and bite you. Just try to stay out of them. But, they play true, and are fairly easy to get out of.
Multiple tees to allow you to play to your ability. Don't be afraid to play forward, if you have any doubt.
Loved this course

A must play

I can see why this was rated a must play by Golfweek magazine. The middle difficulty course of the 3 at Wailea.
After an error of my own making, I missed my original tee time. Yet, they went out of their way to fit me in to a rather busy schedule
This course starts off with a par 4 downhill, playing straightaway. Stand on the tee, and it is hard to concentrate, with the view facing you.
All the hole play tighter than the Old Blue course. But they also play fair.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Practice area sits on a hill. Your clubs are loaded on to pre-staged carts, based on course playing and tee time. They have specific carts designated strictly for range access. So, you do have to transfer clubs. Not a big hassle.
Tees, greens, fairways, and yes bunkers are kept in immaculate condition, and play true.
Enjoyed the round, and was sorry to see the 18th green. Could have gone on for hours longer.

Fun course to play

The easiest of the 3 at Wailea. Course is set back from the ocean. Designed to allow for play of all levels. Fairways are wide, and forgiving, so play moves along quite quickly.
Tees, greens and fairways were immaculate. Balls rolled true.
Most holes had views of the ocean and Molikini.
Wind came up on the back nine, and had to learn to hit the low punch shot into the wind. Made for a great learning experience.
Staff was very helpful and lets you go off the first tee early if you are ready.
Would love to play this course again.

Blue course. Good resort track

Generous fairways on the plus side but lots of elevated greens require one extra club or more depending on wind. Enjoyable course. Friendly on course refreshment cart. Could use a marshal to move play along. We had a slow front but the threesome ahead of us did not play the back.

Well worth playing.

Very, nice fairways, greens were big with challenging breaks, lots of sand protecting the greens, lots of uphill to challenge your club selection, a little wind that could change your club selection or direction. All in all, I had a great time

Blame it on the Views!

I didn't play my usual perfect (not) 18 holes but can blame it on the course itself. The views are like non other and can lull you to another place between each hole. So, the magnificent views, coupled with the most beautifully kept grounds I've ever played, are the reasons I may have played beneath my typical par.

It's the Gold course for a reason

The Gold course has everything the Wailea Emerald has from amazing views overlooking the ocean and incredible elevation changes with a bigger challenge. If you handled your business on the Emerald course ( a must play course ), then move up to the more challenging Gold course. The Gold is every bit as fun as the Emerald just a bit less forgiving, with a higher importance of accuracy and course management.

The Emerald

A real risk/reward course. As you stand on the elevated first tee taking in the amazing view looking down the steep fairway and thinking "I can drive this green!", think again. Rock outcroppings and steep fall offs near fairways are will what you be contending with should your aggressive play come up short of perfection. I absolutely loved this course and it is set up for scoring and fun, take what the course gives you and you will have the time of your life. And if your game isn't on don't worry, just take a deep breath and take in the amazing views of surrounding islands and then everything will fall into place. The course staff was amazing, as well as pace of play and fairways and greens. I highly recommend this very playable and beautiful course to everyone, if you're gonna play one course make it this one!

A Maui gem

I've not played the Emerald, so I can't declare the Gold the best course at Wailea, but I have heard people say it is. I can see why. It's a very pleasant experience. The backdrops of the ocean are beautiful, and so is the landscaping. The holes are well laid out. While they are challenging, they are not penal. This is resort golf at its finest. Most come to Maui to chill, and Wailea provides those calming island vibes.

Solid Choice on Maui

Definitely the toughest of the courses at Wailea. Front 9 of the Gold course is more interesting than the back. Nicely conditioned and pace of play was about 4:15 on a busy Saturday. Definitely worth the play if you’re staying at one of the Wailea resorts.
