Description:

Set in the gentle hillsides of "Up-Country" Maui, Pukalani...

Set in the gentle hillsides of "Up-Country" Maui, Pukalani Country Club overlooks the Pacific Ocean and offers breath-taking panoranic views of the Valley Isle of Maui. The Pukalani Country Club is nestled at the 1,100 foot elevation level of world famous Mount Haleakala, an extinct volcano whose name in Hawaiian means "House of the Rising Sun" and is appropriately reflected as the golf course's logo. Pukalani's 18 holes were designed by golf course architect Bob Baldock who designed more than 69 public and private golf courses throughout the United States. The Pukalani Country Club's greenery covers nearly 160 acres. Built in 1980, the course is 6,962 yards long from the championship tees, plays to a par 72, and features 19 greens in its 18-hole layout! On hole #3, golfers may choose a tough iron shot across a ravine and into the wind for one green, or a challenging chip shot straight down to a well-trapped green several hundred feet below into the ravine. No other golf course in Hawaii can compare or offer you this unique setting and challenge of our hole #3. "Pukalani" which in Hawaiian means "Entrance to Heaven" certainly describes Pukalani Country Club!

Pukalani is a little out of the way and a good price to golf. This isn't your 5 star golf club but still a day out on the links. There is only one water hole and not too challenging as open fairways with a lot of downhill holes. the 3rd hole is over a raven and players have a choice... More

Often when we leave the Hawaiian islands we have to fly out overnight. This leaves a block of time during the final day after you have checked out of your room but need to keep busy before the evening flight. Usually we hit up the Lavender farm and then enjoy a great meal at the Kula Lodge but we had... More

From the moment we pulled up, the friendliness never stopped. Starting at the Bag Drop, to the Pro Shop & Snack Shop. Mike in the Pro Shop was very helpful as it was our first time golfing at Pukalani. Don't let the non-descript buildings fool you when you pull up. The golf course itself is in wonderful shape. They clearly... More

The most beautiful and longest course on Maui. The fairways and greens are very maintained. Sometimes a hard wind but a great overlook among the coast of Kahului ans Kihei. Best weather conditions while 3 days we were playing, no rain, not too hot. In another rating it would be criticized that they stopped a game at the 17th hole,... More

Great relaxing day on the golf course. The views were not to be missed, the course is well maintained and it is challenging enough to provide some surprises along the say. My husband and I played 18 there in mid-September and it was exactly what we were looking for - not over priced and a good value.

I play here every year when we visit Maui. It's a great value especially on Thursday when the visitor rate is $45. Played with a couple from San Francisco and a local who were a lot of fun. The only issue I have is the greens don't hold real well but with wind, it is a challenge anyway. Need to... More
