About
Consistently ranked as the #1 golf course in Hawaii, playing The Plantation Course is sure to be on every golfer's bucket list. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the course was designed on a grand scale in keeping with its location on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains and offers dramatic ocean views from virtually every hole. You'll feel like one of the pros when - with the aid of the aggressive slope of the 18th fairway - you will enjoy hitting one of the longest drives of your life. The Plantation Course is the site of the PGA TOUR Sentry Tournament of Champions each January featuring an elite field of previous year's PGA TOUR winners.

Bad Service
Jul. 2021
This is the first time we visit the famous golf course, beautiful view. It is so windy, the golf ball even could not sit on the green, we quitted after the 11th hole due to my wife felt headache from the strong wind. We went to the club house to lunch, the hostess lead us to a side area, actually a small table on a balcony, we asked to be seated to the main dinning area which has 4 tables by the window, she said they are booked for the reservations, 20 mins later, we got our food, several birds flew to our table that we really couldn't eat, those window tables are still vacant with no any customers, I asked them again to remove to one of them, they still said not available, but they let other twosome sit one of the table with no reservation ( I checked with the customer), I complained to the front desk older lady and she let us move. Very unfriendly attitude to a couple senior golfers.

Final course on Maui to play
May 2021
An interesting experience; I would say very hard course (and expensive) and was windy which is not unusual but the views are spectacular.

Beautiful but difficult course. Gets a little chilly so bring a sweater if you’re going for the ride.

Maui Golf
Apr. 2021 • Solo
For those golfers who want spectacular views there’s no better course on the island of Maui than the Plantation at Kapalua. The problem is there are no marshals on the course so today’s round was 5 1/2 hours. Try to tee off as early as possible to avoid having to wait on every shot.

Disappointing Beauty
Apr. 2021
Well, after dropping a ridiculous amount of money, the experience was unwhelming. So, the course and the views are amazing. But all the rest of the experience was poor. The staff is underwhelming and couldn't seem to care about the guests. Having gone to other top tier courses, my expectation is a first class experience and Kapulua seems to be more of golf mill processing fish. Worse yet is that they allowed 5-somes and these guys were locals who live on the course and treated everyone else like they were lesser than. The pace of play is not good either and the quality of the facility is below expectations as well. Be mindful they have no "rain check" policy and we found that out first hand after our round was washed out by crazy rain and wind. Make sure you have your rain gear because a random cloud can come out of the blue. Do get me wrong the views and the course itself were great. I just don't know that I would play there again based on the rest of it.

A Lot of Money for a Very Long Round
Mar. 2021
Wow. This golf course is not for the faint of heart. The PGA Tour starts their season here in January and we don't recommend that you shell out the $$$ unless you're a pretty good golfer. This is mountain golf with spectacular views of the ocean, especially on the back nine. But there are lots of blind shots and forced carries. The hole distances are long, particularly for women. Our greatest issue was the pace of play. It was an agonizing 5 hours-plus. There was even a group of six in front of us. I'm not sure what their course management strategy is, because it appeared to be non-existent. Sure, it's a renowned course but once was enough for us.

Outstanding views on a challenging course
Feb. 2021 • Couples
The Plantation Course is one of the best known courses in the world. The views are absolutely stunning. The course is very challenging. The only negative comments are that they need to improve the signage in a few places as we weren’t sure which way to head to a couple of the next tees. The other comment it you tee off in a few places that make it difficult to see where your ball lands on the other side of a hill. This is a very windy course given it is in Kampala.

Delicious Lunch Overlooking the 18th Hole
Jan. 2020 • Business
Over the years of playing this ‘Bucket List’ course, I have enjoyed many breakfasts & lunches at the Plantation House restaurant. The food choices and service are excellent. The views, overlooking the 18th hole, are gorgeous and include seeing the island of Lanai. Today I ordered the Avocado BLT and it was delicious. The breakfast selections are also available until 3:00 pm daily. Late January is a perfect time to enjoy this restaurant & property. Earlier in the month the Plantation Course is the site of the PGA TOUR’s Sentry Tournament of Champions featuring many elite winners from the previous years PGA’s events.

Not worth the money!
Jan. 2020
We spent so much money to play here. The GPS system on cart barely worked. The pace of play was awful. We waited every shot. Multiple holes were cart path only. You had to walk very far and carry your bag. The ladies tees were very dumbed down. So many extremely short par 4s of 265. Thumbs down
