Kapalua Bay and Kapalua Plantation

Aloha from the Maui Golf Shop!

When someone thinks of Golf on Maui, Kapalua comes straight to mind.   The Hyundai Tournament of Champions is held at Kapalua Plantation every January.   It offers a wonderful beginning to the years tournaments and what a great way to see your favorite players.    

We offer great specials with Kapalua and I wanted to share them with you as well as give a brief description of the courses.    They are courses that do not disappoint...

Kapalua Plantation 
Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii
Kapalua Plantation
The Plantation course is considered one of the toughest and most spectacular golf courses on Maui. It has the widest fairways and largest greens but plays tight due to the elevation changes, sloping fairways and strong trades that challenge you on every hole. Bring extra balls as the waist high rough eats golf balls. Try to play with a partner experienced at Kapalua as local knowledge is a must to score well here. The par 73 should be 83 even for pros playing the first time! Remember to play safe whenever possible as most short and wild shots turn into lost balls. You will enjoy the Plantations big sloping greens.

The Hyundai Championship is played here every January with the opening of the PGA Tour season where the best in the world come to challenge one of Maui's best courses. Kapalua Plantation is best played around 10am to beat the morning rains that frequent the area.

Kapalua Bay
Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii
The Bay was Kapalua's first course designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane in 1975. Clif, the owner of the Maui Golf Shop was one of the first assistant pros in the mid 70's. This course runs by the Ritz Carlton down to the ocean and offers some challenging golf on two short but tricky ocean holes when the trades are blowing. The back side is more sheltered from the wind and plays a little easier except for the finishing holes. #16 has a stream running down the middle of the fairway making your tee shot tricky with the wind blowing 20 mph into your face. #17 is a tough well-bunkered par 3 with a lake on the left for a long iron shot. 

Most enjoy playing golf on the Bay because of the ocean holes. Lava flowing into the sea created Kapalua which means "Arms embracing the Sea." The Bay Course has recently renovated their greens. They are in great shape. Kapalua Bay is best played around 10am to beat the morning rains that frequent the area. We have an exclusive mid-morning special when booked through the Maui Golf Shop. Don't forget to ask us about it.
