4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
Test out your golfing skills on the course that hosts the PGA Tournament of Champions each January set amidst the tropical scenery in Hawaii at Kapalua Plantation Course. Some of golf's best have played this course, including Tiger Woods and Ernie Els. The course is long, at 6,776 m (7,411 yd), and has a par 73 layout, but it offers plenty of greens, wide fairways, and multiple downhill tee shots. You'll play within expansive ocean views, a luxury that has caused the course to be regularly ranked as the number one golf course in Hawaii. Due to the difficulty of the course, golf pros recommend only those with previous golfing experience play here. If you plan on golfing more than once, consider the discounted multi-day packages.

  • Beautiful course with panoramic views. The staff at the clubhouse was excellent, friendly and helpful. The clubhouse had a large selection of merchandise. Definitely worth the price for the round. I w...  read more »
  • Difficult but beautiful course. Wide fairways and large greens- that's the easy part. Some very long holes and sloping fairways. Day I was there very windy. 
  • I was able to enjoy this course again and was just amazed at the vistas as I was the 1st time I played here several years ago. The greens had been aerated a few days before I played but it didn't matt...  read more »
  • The most accommodating staff and pro shop, and the starters are the nicest I've ever seen. The views alone are worth the price, but even for a high handicapper, the course is very playable from the silver tees. Wide open and areas to lay up and/or bail out.
  • Great course with spectacular views. I'm from the Midwest, and I thought the green fees are fair based on the quality of the course and location. Spotted a humpback whale from the 12th tee while there.
  • Challenging course with amazing views. Whale watching while in season. The staff are courteous and professional. Club and shoe rental available and good quality.
  • Almost had to give the plantation course a 1 star due to the treatment I received. Thanks only to the general manager Mike Jones for righting the wrong, I am able to say I was a happy customer and will return to Kapalua in the future! Obviously the plantation course at Kapalua is one of the most beautiful courses you will ever see and could get 5 stars just based off of that. I was pretty upset and disgusted that I could be at such a prestigious course, and be treated the way I was by one of the pro-shop employees. After spending thousands of dollars to travel and stay at Kapalua, then another couple hundred to play a course that was on my "bucket-list" of courses to play, I was treated like a complete joke by a pro-shop employee. I was so angry that I told myself I would never come back. Luckily I was able to talk to the general manager Mike Jones and he made sure that as a customer, I was completely satisfied. I went from being treated like I played some small, public community course, to being treated like I played the world class course that it is. a HUGE thank you again to Mike and I can't wait to come back to play again in the future.
  • One of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. Worth every penny...and it will cost you many pennies!!!
