Maui Hawaii Golf Courses - the South Shore - Kihei, Wailea and Makena

maui golf courses - Elleair in Kihei


With over 15 courses in incredibly beautiful settings, Maui is a world-class golf destination..  Each year Maui hosts a number of tournaments, including:

  • the Hawaii Open
  • the Senior Skins - October
  • the Ladies Skins - January
  • the Mercedes Championship - January

Here's a list of courses in the South side resort area  - Kihei, Wailea and Makena.

ELLEAIR  1345 Piilani Hwy,  Kihei, Maui, Hawaii 96753  (808) 874-0777

Formerly Silversword Golf Course, it's located in the heart of Kihei close to the Maui High-Tech Park.  If you own a condo in the Hokulani Golf Villas, you will be looking out over these pretty fairways.

WAILEA  100 Wailea Golf Club Dr.  Wailea, Maui, Hawaii 96753  808 875-5111 

This stellar golf resort offers three world-class 18-hole runs.  Close to the Wailea hotels and the Shops at Wailea, this a favorite for visitors to Maui.  Wide green fairways and large greens make for enjoyable golfing for all.  While the Gold and Blue courses offer golfers all they could want from Maui golf, it's the Emerald Course that's the star of this show.  The Emerald is a jewel of a course, with its name describing the great conditions and color of the course   It's one of North America's most women friendly courses.  Lots of short fun holes and reachable par 5's.  The Gold is the most demanding of the three courses and has lots of outstanding golf holes.  Try them all and you won't be disappointed.

If you own a Grand Champions condo or Wailea Fairway Villas unit, you could be watching them tee off from your lanai.  After a hard day of golf, get refreshed at Joe's Bar and Grill, or Mulligans on the Green Restaurant.

All Wailea courses require reservations by credit card:  800-981-5512 9am-5pm HST

MAKENA  5415 Makena Alanui,  Makena, Maui, Hawaii 96753  (808) 879-3344

The Makena Golf Club is part of the Makena Resort/Prince Hotel on Maui's south shore and they want you to have fun, on both the South Course with its ocean and mountain views, and the North - a tight, well trapped beauty on the flanks of Haleakala.  With the North and South courses, you'll not only have 36 more holes of Maui golf to experience, but you'll have the option of playing toward the sea, or up into the brilliant Maui landscape.  Both are Robert Trent Jones Jr. creations.

Makena North seems very natural with Hawaiian rock walls, gullies, and old lava flows. Unobtrusive cart paths wind through the shade of thorny kiawe trees, and the endangered Nene Geese are plentiful.  Narrow fairways, elevation changes and undulating greens provide a consistent challenge throughout. Though the area is known for a gentler wind than other areas, the wind does blow here and can be a significant factor.

The South Course, which measures 7,019 yards, is the home of the Hawaii Open and frequently hosts other tournaments.  It's an open, forgiving course with spectacular mountain and ocean views.  Topnotch practice range and putting areas too. 

WINTER RATES - subject to change - please verify with the course when making a reservation.

My wife and I visited Hawaii twenty years ago and stayed at the Maui Princess.  We would love to go back.

Hi John - I'm glad you have fond memories of Maui - it seems a lot of people do!  It's high time for another visit don't you think?

How many county courses are there on Maui? We have two on Kauai, and the Wailua Public Golf Course is nothing short of sensational. A slope 0f129 from the whites. The course ain't easy. I'd love to golf Maui sometimes. What are the kama aina rate on the courses above Georgina?

Georgina, hi! Wouldn't you know that the day I left was the opening day of the Mercedes Championship - January. And what fantastic island golf courses you have.  Great information about a fun sport.

Ronnie - 16 or 17, and of course the Maui Country Club is only 9 holes.  Then there's 2 more over on Lanai, and 1 or 2 on Molokai.  I posted the rates, thanks for the nudge.  You'd probably like the municipal course here too... it's right on the ocean with beautiful views.  A little rough, but cheap, and especially cheap for kama'ainas!

Gena - I didn't know you were a golfer!
