If you are in Maui and seeking something fun to do, head over to Lahaina and find Kaanapali Royal Golf Course, where you can enjoy golfing, and at the same time, relax at the enchanting views of nature.

Whether you are alone, with your small children, friends, or colleagues, this historic golf course offers you a one-of-a-kind experience.

Did you know that Kaanapali was once called the home to the Royal Chiefs of Maui? So, imagine becoming a part of this beautiful history as soon as you walked into it. We assure you, you won’t be disappointed with the breathtaking views of their sloping vistas that unfold the islands of Lanai and Molokai from a distance.

As you discover this 6,700-yard golfing ground, you will notice the historical plaques on each tree, which tell you about the unique history and beautiful stories about the place. When you play, you do not just challenge your golfing skills, but you will also witness the most beautiful rainbows that you could ever lay eyes on. If you have come from a cold place, Kaanapali Royal Golf Course lets you feel a genuine tropical wind that cools you down while playing.

When you golf, you begin at a sea level in the oceanside and then continue to the West Maui Mountain foothills, where you will see stunning panoramic views. You may find yourself challenged with its sloping fairways and big contoured greens, which put your putting skills to the test. Here’s a tip from us: Remember to select the best club if you want the best shot.
