When it comes to sports in Maui nothing tops Maui golf courses. This island is replete with so many great golf courses that it’s truly a golfer’s paradise. That being said, there are some that outrank the rest and they just so happen to be in Kapalua along with some of the best real estate on the island including condos for sale in Kapalua and stunning Kapalua luxury homes. That’s why today we’re going to let you in on our reasons for what makes these two golf courses in Kapalua the best in the whole world.
Kapalua Bay Course
This West Maui golf course was opened in 1975 and has hosted over 20 major professional tournaments! That’s the most out of any golf courses in the state. From the first live prime-time televised event in golf at the 1983 Kapalua International to the Kapalua LPGA classic some 25 years later, this golf course is one you have to check out.
This championship golf course rests on rolling, hilly terrain throughout the Kapalua resort and onward towards the ocean. It has 68 bunkers total, 8 water hazards, and an ideal 5th hole that gives golfers a close view of the edge of the Pacific. Aside from the views, some great golfers have been here including Fred Couples and Davis Love III. Have we convinced you yet of what makes this golf course one of the best?
Kapalua Plantation Course
This course is often ranked the number one golf course in all Hawaii and is rightfully given that name for its design and incredible views. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the course was made on a wide scale and offers views of the West Maui Mountains and the awe-inspiring Pacific Ocean. It has a lengthy 7,411-yard par with 73 layout challenges. The pros love it but so will you. The Plantation Course also happens to be home to the PGA TOUR’s Sentry Tournament of Champions each year and golfers of clout such as Tiger Woods have stepped foot on here. How amazing is that!
That’s some background on the two best golf courses not only on Maui but in the world that also happen to be located right here on Maui. That’s why real estate for sale in Kapalua is a great investment because you’ll be near one of your favorite past times and have access to this course every day.
