Golf on Lana'i two course Special $309!!!

Check Out our Club Rental Specials below Who out there knows that we here at Maui Golf Shop also book golf tee times at discount pricing on the island of Lanai? Well, we do. There are two courses on Lanai: The Challenge at Manele and The Experience at Koele. A typical golf outing on Lanai begins with a 6:45am ferry ride to Manele Bay. The ferry ride lasts approx. 45 min. Upon arriving on Lanai you will meet a bus driver who will shuttle you and your party up to Koele for a fee of $10 per person credit card only good for the day. The shuttle service will make an intermediate stop so you can pay for your shuttle service it leaves every hour on the hour. You may want to bring a light jacket as it can get a little cool at Koele you may also want to bring a snack. You can purchase a sandwich from the beverage cart at the Challenge. Upon arriving at Koele, you will check-in with the pro shop (obviously...) and then tee it up. After finishing 18 holes at Koele make sure to catch the 1:00 shuttle, you will be shuttled down to The Challenge at Manele. You will need to check-in with the pro shop...again...and then head to the first tee. After finishing 18 holes at Manele, your shuttle will be waiting to take you down to Manele Bay so you can catch the 6:45pm ferry back to Lahaina Harbor. Since Lanai is not heavily populated, either course is seldom crowded and players can usually bask in the views that both courses offer without feeling rushed. This is the best golf package around! The cost to play both courses is $309 and that includes round trip ferry tickets! Lanai ground transportation will cost $10 once you arrive on Lanai credit cards only. The price listed is for ONE golfer. We also can book only 18 holes of golf at either course if that's more your speed. The cost to play either course is $259 and that includes round trip ferry tickets! Lanai ground transportation will cost $10 once you arrive on Lanai. The price listed is for ONE golfer. Does the wife or significant other want to go to Lanai, but not play? No problem there either. Round trip ferry tickets for ferry are $60 per person! We can help you book a horse back ride or a rental car or even perhaps enjoy a day at the Spa at the Four Seasons Do not pass up this extraordinary deal!

Keep in mind that the resort and non-resort courses on Maui increase their rates in peak season from Dec 18- April 30.

When the time comes for booking of your tee time, we will send you your tee time confirmation and ask for a credit card to secure your reservation. The credit card is NOT actual payment, it is just used to hold your reservation. Once you arrive on Maui, just stop by our store to pay for and pick up your discount golf vouchers. If stopping by is not possible just call and we'll take your payment over the phone all you have to do then is just show up at the course the day of play.
