Experience Breathtaking Views
Along many holes on the Ka’anapali Kai Course lie natural canals, gulches and lava rock boundaries. The course is landscaped with native flowers along the trails like the hibiscus, bougainvillea and plumeria, as well as the Norfolk Pines and coconut trees that border many fairways. These features are part of what makes the course most enjoyable. Ka’anapali Kai Course was redesigned by Hawaii’s most prolific golf course architect, Robin Nelson. This course focuses on strategy of your round, not necessarily distance or strength, which is why this course is enjoyed by both the beginner and avid golfer.
Ka’anapali Kai Course was originally created as an executive course and was later redesigned by architect Arthur Jack Snyder in 1976. At 6,400 yards, the par 70 course is a more forgiving golf course with subtle, undulating greens that accommodates all levels of play. The land on which Ka’anapali Golf Courses was founded, originally housed a sugar cane plantation.
Once the vacation place of the Royal Chiefs of Maui it was the perfect escape for royalty who enjoyed many games including a form of lawn bowling using stones on what are now the fairways of the Kā’anapali Kai Golf Course.
Your journey today begins Makai (Oceanside), then takes you into the foothills of the West Maui Mountains (Mauka), offering breathtaking views of our Kai (Ocean) and neighboring islands. Experience Kā’anapali.
