One of the highlights of Kaanapali Resort is its world-class golf course. The Kaanapali Golf Resort is rich in history and tradition, and offers 36 holes of legendary golfing. Built on the playground of ancient Hawaiian royalty, the golf resort is situated on 1200 acres with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui Mountains.

Home of the Champions Tour Kaanapali Classic for 14 years, the Royal Kaanapali Course also hosted Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, the Canada Cup and the LPGA Kemper Open, and the 2007 Senior Skins. Come rediscover why Kaanapali is, where the world comes to play!

Royal Kaanapali Course, Par 71, 6700 Yards

The Royal Kaanapali Course, a Robert Trent Jones Senior design, opened in 1962 and has tested the skills of golf professionals and amateurs alike. In the fall of 2006, this challenging course received a nip/tuck renovation by renowned golf course architect, Robin Nelson. Nelson helped to design all new bunkering and resurfaced the greens with TifEagle, a Bermuda hybrid. Combining wide fairways and undulating greens, the Royal Kaanapali Course is both distinctive and demanding.

Kaanapali Kai Course, Par 70, 6388 Yards

The Kaanapali Kai, originally a Par 3 executive course (Arthur Jack Snyder design) was also recently renovated. A Par 70, this course combines narrow fairways and a need for a deft touch around the greens. With four sets of tees, this course is perfect for all levels of play. Many of the holes are nestled into the West Maui Mountains and have beautiful panoramic views of the neighboring islands.
