Enjoyed both courses while at a stay in the area. The Kai course has a more interesting layout however the Royal course is more challenging and by the ocean. I recommend playing twice in one day as the replay rate is the best deal of all.

Played the Kaanapali Kai course among 5 others this trip, and this one was our least favorite. It's ok if you accept it for what it is... an average golf course in Hawaii. This means it's not particularly scenic, but some spots can be, course condition below average as reflected in its pricing (among Hawaii golf pricing), but you're still... More

We stayed at the Royal Lahaina Resort and golfed nearby at the local Kaanapali Golf Course. The staff were terrific and the course was in terrific condition. A fair test of golf with Beautiful views from most holes. Greens were in great condition and pace of play was excellent. The pro shop had a nice selection of golf items and... More

Had a great round at Ka'anapali. Course is well maintained and greens were cut pretty short. However the fee seemed a little pricey for what it is even though I paid the resort fee. I would only play this if you are staying at the resort- given the price and it is conveniently located next to the hotels. I would... More

We enjoyed both of these courses, though the Royal is more fun and interesting. Pace was reasonable on the Royal but-surprisingly-a little slow on the easier Kai. But hey, we're on Maui playing golf so still had a great time. The staff in the clubhouse and at the start and finish are very friendly and helpful. Especially June, who actually... More

Worth to play here. It is a little expensive but the views and condition of the course were fabulous. It is not a difficult course as it has been designed for a range of abilities.

This was our third course this week and the first one where at the end we got cool towels and our clubs were cleaned for us! We thought the course would not be that scenic as its close to the highway but most holes were set back and the cross highway holes had beautiful ocean views. This is a really... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. A little expensive, but we got on free by going on a time share tour. Well worth it. Beautiful day.

We wanted to play the course since the PGA Championship was played on a week prior to our arrival. In fact, they were still in the process of taking down the grand stands. The club house was nice and the staff welcoming. But this is no cheap round. Rates vary during the time of year and day, so check the... More

Have played courses on Maui every year since 2005. The Kaanapali courses are always slow (except early morning), routinely 5+ hours. Monday the Kai course, 5 hours 45 minutes. Beware!
