Maui Golf Resorts
Maui Island of Hawaii holds the most concentration of world-renowned golf courses in the United States. With over 15 golf estates, Maui can easily claim as the premier golf destinations.
To name a few there are the Kapalua Resort, Makena Resort, and the Wailea Golf Club.
Kapalua Resort holds two of the top golf courses in Maui namely The Bay Course and The Plantation Course. The Bay Course was designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane. Spread in a 6,600-yard par 72 on gently rolling fairways and generous greens. The Plantation Course was designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore. It is home for the PGA Tours Mercedes-Benz Championship done every January. It is sprawled in a par 73, 7,411-yard across a natural geographic formation.
Makena Resort also holds two world-class golf courses namely the Makena North Course and the Makena South Course.
The Makena North Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. It opened in 1993 over-looking the blue Pacific Ocean and with breath-taking mountain views of Haleakala Crater. The same hold true with the Makena South Course.
Wailea Golf Club on the other hand holds three golf courses and these are the Old Blue Course, the Emerald Course, and the Gold Course. The Old Blue Course is stretched in 6,765 yards from its tips on the gentle lower foothills of the dormant Mt. Haleakala volcano. The 6825-yard Emerald Course is preferred and voted as the most women-friendly golf club due to its carpet-like fairways.
The most challenging of the Wailea’s trio is the 7,078-yard Wailea Gold because of its rugged and masterful design that takes advantage of the terrain’s natural formations. Designed by architect Robert Trent Jones II, it was honored by both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest as one of the country’s ten best golf courses.
