Kapalua Bay offers some of Maui’s few ocean front holes. Kapalua Bay is easier than its sister course- Kapalua Plantation. No pushover, Kapalua Bay offers challenging golf on two short ocean holes when the trade winds blow. The back 9 are more sheltered from the wind providing easier play. A short distance from the Kaanapali resorts, Kapalua Bay offers a great value over Kapalua Plantation. Play either Kapalua Golf Course- Kapalua Plantation or Kapalua Bay around 11am to beat the morning rains that frequent the area but are blown away with twilight afternoon trade winds.
