Golf Central and South MauiMaui
From private clubs to municipal courses, Central and South Maui have a range of golf options.
Maui Country Club in Spreckelsville is an exclusive course that allows public play only on Mondays. Opened in 1925, this nine-hole course is the oldest golf facility on Maui and one of only two private clubs on the island. (King Kamehameha Country Club in Waikapu is the other.)
Play at Elleair Golf Course on Lipoa Street in Kihei for a reasonably priced admission fee. With multiple tees and wide fairways, it’s a fun test for all skill levels.
Makena Resort is home to two excellent golf courses: North and South. Built andredesigned by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., both of these beauties wind through 1,800 acres of coastline.
Wailea offers everything you could want in a golf club: two clubhouses and three very different golf courses. The Blue Course, designed by Arthur Jack Snyder, opened for play in 1972. The Wailea Emerald Course, another Robert Trent Jones Jr. creation, was voted one of the Top 10 New Courses by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine. The Gold Course, with its rugged character, has been called “one of the best designed layouts in the world” by Conde Nast Traveler. In Wailuku, try Kahili Golf Course or Waiehu Municipal Course.
