Lanai, Lanai, Lanai

Our biggest seller this year is our Lanai 36 hole golf package. It is also the best value with the best views and course conditions.

The day starts out by taking the Lanai ferry from Lahaina harbor at 6:45a. After arriving on Lanai you will be shuttled up to Koele to play your first 18 holes. After Koele, you will be shuttled down to Manele where your second 18 holes begin. After Manele, it is time to take the last ferry out of Lanai.

Q: Will I be able to finish 18 holes?

A: Yes. The pace of play on both courses is relatively quick and one can finish 36 holes without missing the last ferry.

Q: How do I get to Koele?

A: Once arriving on Lanai you will see shuttle vans. Find the one going to Koele and hop on. The drivers will ask if you have a transportation voucher. If you don't, they will stop at the hotel so you can get one. The cost is $10 per person and is valid all day.

Q: When will Koele be open on Mondays and Tuesdays?

A: This answer all depends on the staff at Koele and the state of the US economy.

Q: When is a good time to play?

A: Weekdays are usually wide open on Lanai. On the weekends the courses have a tendency to host large group outings starting at Koele. If you want to play, and Koele is booked in the morning, we can book your trip so Manele is played first followed by Koele.

Q: Where does the ferry leave from?

A: Lahaina Harbor off of front street. Parking can be found behind the Burger King which is located by the huge banyon tree.

Q: Is there something for the significant other to do over on Lanai?

A: There is a hotel spa and pool which can be used with permission and beaches which are accessible. The shuttle service can be used to get to the hotel resort areas where there is shopping. Down at Manele Bay there are covered lawn chairs where one can rent snorkel gear and water toys.
