The Bay Course opened in 1975 and in that time has hosted over 20 major professional tournaments - the most of any neighbor island course in the state of Hawaii. From the first live prime-time televised event in golf at the 1983 Kapalua International to the Kapalua LPGA classic some 25 years later, The Bay Course has consistently faced the best players in golf and withstood the test of time and technology. The Bay Course is a championship course that is as challenging as it is beautiful. Known for its breathtaking 5th hole, the only hole to play over the ocean on Maui, it should certainly be on the "must play" list for any golfer visiting Maui.

Very playable. Nice wide fairways. True rolling greens. And incredible views. Several holes the views tend to distract you from your golf shots. Very friendly staff.

We've played many courses on Maui over the years. Kapalua is one of the prettiest areas on Maui, and we play this course every year because it is so enjoyable. The staff is friendly, the course is beautiful and the views are stunning.

Played 5 courses on my trip and this was one of the most enjoyable rounds. It's a high quality course (conditions & maintenance, service, design) with plenty of scenic views (the famous Kapalua coastal trail runs next to parts of it), and the design is...More

Golf at the gorgeous, challenging Kapalua Bay Course was a once in a lifetime experience when we saw two whales breaching just off the par 3. Hard to concentrate on putting with a marine show going on just yards away. Made for a memorable round.

Wow this course kicked my butt, and offered quite the challenge along with picture postcard views. Some tough holes due to winds from the bay, helpful staff for the most part except for the totally not friendly fellow who checked us in which didn't start...More

The course was excellent! I played the Plantation course a few days later but the views on the Bay course are much more beautiful. The greens and fairways were in tournament condition. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back.
