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. Its lengthy 7,411 yard par 73 layout challenges the pros but it's wide fairways and generous greens make it very playable for the average golfer. With dramatic elevation changes, this course offers plenty of downhill tee shots. 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 Hyundai Tournament of Champions each January featuring an elite field of previous year's PGA TOUR winners.

Caught a break in the weather and managed to get in 27 holes. Gorgeous course that’s a lot of fun to play. It is not a hard course. I landed in one bunker and lost about a half-dozen balls. The green speeds are the toughest...More

Beautiful clubhouse with ole ty of friendly staff. The ladies bathroom needs updated desperately as it's dreary and smelly. Doesn't match the rest of the club which is surprising.

The views alone are worth the greens fees (which aren't cheap). This course is challenging but fair. The GPS system is amazing and accurate. It's wide open, so you can score but staying focused is tough -- when your eyes are constantly looking at the...More
