The Emerald Course is Wailea's signature golf course and it generally lives up to its billing. Like most of the courses on Maui there's great elevation change including the spectacular first hole which offers a great view over the ocean (in the distance - none of the holes come near the water). There are many memorable holes including the spectacular view from the first tee (and the big downhill drive), the 6th and the massive double green shared by holes 10 and 17. We found the corset be in good condition though the greens do take some time to get used to (if you usually play in a more northernly climate) as depending on the direction of the grain your ball will roll very differently. Also, the undulating greens can be tricky to read - just remember and trust that they always break towards the water.
If you can secure an early tee time. If you're one of the first three of four groups off you will get your round in well under four hours leaving you lots of time for another round or simply to relax on the beach.
