Pukalani Country Club is located in upcountry Maui, on the slopes of Haleakala, where it's a little cooler. If you're driving up Haleakala Highway, take the Old Haleakala Highway exit and then take a right at Pukalani Terrace Shopping Center. Tha's Pukalani Street... drive all the way to the end and there's the golf club, at 360 Pukalani St. Pukalani HI 96768. It's a public golf course with reasonable fees. My dad likes to play here because he's cheap, and he doesn't want to pay the high fees at the resorts down in Wailea and Makena.
That's the driving range pictured above... not bad huh?
They used to have a pretty good restaurant serving local food, but the place burned down about a year ago. They still haven't rebuilt the clubhouse, they are operating out of trailers for now. They serve cold drinks and snacks at the pro shop, but no alcoholic beverages. It seems to be working and I wonder if they will ever have a real restaurant again.
They have a website and you can call them at 808 572-1314 for reservations. Bob Baddock designed the course, if that means anything.
Here's a good tip.... if you have a Hawaii Driver's License, you can get the Kama'aina rates for green fees and cart rental... that's the local price. You can save a lot of money this way. Sometimes it pays to be a local.
There's plenty of homes along the fairway, and they are very reasonably priced for Maui. In fact Pukalani has some of the best prices of homes for sale on the island. Currently you can expect to pay in the $700,000's for a nice home with great fairway views. The residential condos are priced much lower and they are pretty cute.
Let me know if you'd like more info about Pukalani homes for sale.
