Maui golfing is nothing less than exceptional at the Dunes at Maui Lani Golf Course in Kahului.
With an immaculately manicured 18 holes, and the only grass practice tees in Central Maui lit by night, you are sure to be thrilled with this course. Maui Lani is the total package for Maui golfing; it is open 7 days a week and boasts a pro shop, a stellar restaurant, and PGA instruction led by professional Henry Yogi—the state’s longest-serving association member. This course has often been described as a links course, and except for the fact that Maui is located at 21 degrees north latitude (part of its charm, we’ve heard), that’s essentially what you’ll be golfing here.
Gently sloping sand dunes roll through each fairway, very few trees grow in the area, and the gorgeous water hazards come complete with resident waterfowl. It takes a lot to golf well here, and part of the challenge is to focus on the ball rather than the incredible island scenery! Maui Lani is gently surrounded by the powerful I’ao Valley, the majestic West Maui Mountains—known also as the Kahalawai, and Haleakala Crater, and we haven’t even gotten started on the weather. Light rains often fall during Maui golfing, so be sure to watch for rainbows while you’re waiting for the group ahead of you.
If you’d like an expert to help improve your game, Maui Lani is a perfect place to find one. Garrett Okamura is the course’s new head golf professional, and inside the range school, you’ll utilize equipment to analyze your swing along with technical video to discover what you do well, and what you might like to work on. Passing an hour or so in the air-conditioned education center will be time well spent.
