There is nowhere better to play golf than Hawaii; the islands’ pleasant weather and unbeatable scenery enhance each course. Of all of the Hawaiian islands, Maui stands apart from the rest as the best for golf. A big reason for that is Kapalua Golf, which offers two of the most impressive golf courses in the world.
Parrish Maui has vacation rentals in Kapalua, which makes getting to either of Kapalua Golf’s magnificent courses fast and easy. We’re here to give you a preview of what you can expect when you visit Kapalua Golf.
The Kapalua Bay Course
Since opening in 1975, the Bay Course has hosted over 20 major professional golf tournaments, the most of any golf course in the Hawaiian islands. There is a reason the professionals play so many tournaments here; the Bay Course is remarkably beautiful and just as challenging. The course leaves little room for error, but even inexperienced players will have a blast as it is in immaculate condition and provides outstanding ocean views on nearly every hole.
The best example of the Bay Course’s beauty is the famous 17th hole. The 17th hole is the only hole to play over the ocean on Maui. Many golfers say that the 17th hole is the prettiest hole they have ever played. Will you agree? You will have to go play it for yourself.
The Plantation Course
Despite the stellar reputation of its twin course, the Plantation Course somehow exceeds it; the Plantation Course is consistently ranked as the best golf course in Hawaii. Home to the PGA Tour’s Sentry Tournament of Champions, chances are you have seen golf legends like Tiger Woods, Vijah Singh, and Phil Mickelson play this course.
Like the Bay Course, the Plantation Course is majestically designed. There are fantastic ocean views on most holes, with some even providing views of Molokai and Honolua Bay. The course’s location, on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains, leads to plenty of downhill shots. The Plantation Course also offers wide fairways, making it playable even for novice players. All in all, the Plantation Course is a must-visit for golf enthusiasts visiting Hawaii.
Kapalua Golf Pro Shop & Dining
Kapalua Golf has everything a golfer needs for a day out on the links: a well-stocked pro shop and several dining options. If you work up an appetite after your round on the Plantation Course, head to Plantation House, a casual yet elegant restaurant that offers excellent course views. Their menu features many Hawaiian favorites. If you spent the day at the Bay Course, Bay Cafe is a tasty place for a quick meal. Back at Kapalua Resort, Taverna offers an Italian-inspired menu that uses fresh and local ingredients.
