Golf Vacations on Hawaii Top Courses

Thought about going on one of those popular Maui golf vacations? This little island is bursting with some of the worlds finest courses! Add this fact to the thought that you will be playing amongst spectacular ocean views and underneath the warm tropical sunshine and you have every golf lover's paradise.

A Taste of What's on Offer

The Dunes at Maui Lani Golf Course is located in central Maui and has a design that takes full advantage of the gentle sloping of the ancient sand dunes on which it was built. This rare foundation makes the course unique in its own right and it is guaranteed to keep you on your toes. In total, this course stretches over a distance of 6840 yards and has 18 well thought out holes incorporated into its design. The par for the course is 72.

The Kaanapali Golf Courses can be found on the west part of the island and is in fact composed of two separate courses: The South and The North . The North's manicured greens were the brainchild of Robert Trent Jones Sr and his vision extends over a total of 18 holes and boasts one of toughest last holes in the US . The South was designed by Jack Snyder and is only a stone throws away from the Pacific. Stretching over a total of 6250 yards this is a slightly "friendlier" than its sister course.

When talking about Maui's golf vacations we cannot leave out the Wailea Club which has three impressive courses : The Blue Course has been mentioned in the pages of Golf Digest and has been home to a number of golfing events. The Emerald boasts some of the most tropically decorated fairways and has graced the covers of Golf Magazine. The Gold is the most challenging of the three and was another of Maui's courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.

The Kapalua is also home to three golf courses: The Bay, The Village and The Plantation Courses all of which fall under the label of "championship golf course." The Kapalua courses are truly wondrous sights, and each has its own individual character, thus appealing to all golfers, from beginner to pro. If you are having a bit of difficulty then why not take advantage of the on site golf academy and brush up on your swing, putting and chipping. Did you know that every January pros from all over the world fly in to take part in the PGA TOUR's Mercedes Championship?

Discount Card

If you are a keen and enthusiastic golfer you might be interested in getting a Hawaii golf discount card. This simple card opens you up to numerous benefits which can save you money and time.

  • Rates and fees remain constant throughout the year even in the busy peak seasons.
  • Tee times can be booked with a minimum of fuss and effort
  • The card doesn't have a life span of a few games it can be used for an indefinite number. Think of it as one of those gifts that just keep on giving.

There are also a number of golf vacation packages to Maui that include little extras like cheaper green fees; and some courses even allow you to use the package again and again up to a period of half a year. Clearly some vacation packages can actually save you money, however, you should always ensure that you are fully aware of any limitations e.g. how many courses you can play, or if there are any days you cannot play (blackout dates).
