The famous Plantation Course, host site of the PGA Tour's season-opening Tournament of Champions each January, is a Bill Coore / Ben Crenshaw design that debuted in 1991. It is also one of the very few PGA Tour venues that public golfers can play. The standard rate is $278, although resort guest, junior, and sliding twilight discounts are available, along with a same-day replay rate.

Arnold Palmer and Frank Duane designed the Bay Course, which opened in 1975 and plays to 6,600 yards. The standard rate is $208, while discounts are available for resort guests, juniors, and for sliding twilight play.

Both courses are certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries.

  Stephen Bailey - 1/23/15
Wide fairways, greens difficult to read, speed of greens significantly different down grain vs up grain
  thebeerys - 12/23/14
Absolutely a must play
  SIMADMAN - 7/16/14
Great course, awesome views and great staff. Played plantation course twice on my recent visit.
  haylee808 - 5/28/14
the bay is much easier than the plantation but its still challenging, the cost is a little steep after playing the plantation first, I think a discount for playing same day would entice more golfers to play. excellent course needless to say.
  wangler - 7/1/13
Sweet course. Scenery was breath taking.Well worth the money
  Jim 2ae - 12/21/12

  Martin R Clarke - 7/5/12

  jredtegeler - 5/9/12

  Mauifinder - 2/20/12
Expensive for the visitor. Big course. Outstanding views, easier with out wind.

Played on 12/1 and could not have asked for better weather. Earlier in the week we played on the Bay course and the wind made play adventurous to say the least. The pace of play on the day we played was great. We started at 1:00 and finished at 4:00. Considering the difficulty of the course I can live with that pace of play. It’s a very hilly course with a lot of blind shots. The course condition was great but still had a little sand on the greens in preparation for the PGA tournament. No two holes look the same and the views are spectacular. My advice is to get the first afternoon tee time to save a hundred bucks and have an early dinner at the clubhouse and enjoy the view.

So, there is really no downside to playing at Kapalua's Plantation Course, I mean other than the price, right? The course is in incredibly good shape due to the upcoming Hyundai Championship to open the PGA season. The problems are many though, to be honest I can be a little hard on courses that charge the kind of money Plantation does, $268.00. For that kind of cabbage I want to be able to hit some practice balls at the range, it is the week before they close and there are only six stations open on the range, there were six more people waiting to hit. There was only one Beer Lady driving the course, I ran dry from soda for a while at times. The starter was awesome and really handled putting together groups out of the masses that showed as only single or two ball, credit where due. The day I played there was a deluge of biblical proportions, I was equipped with a rain shirt that was sold to me by the Pro-Shop and it was really, really good but there was too much rain and I was soaked through, being on vacation I simply bought new clothes for replacing the wet and the shop was swamped with many people doing jus that, they handled that very well too.
The drag for me was, as I am sure it will be for those that followed me, pace of play. It was terrible and there were no Marshalls anywhere to be seen, which I am certain is how they roll out here in Maui? Seriously, who is going to listen to someone telling them to speed their pace of play while all the scenery around them is "once in a lifetime" stuff? I am still complaining about it though. It takes a minimum of five hours to play when the rotation is full at Plantation, the winds in the afternoon will absolutely kill you on the back, try and go low on the front because you'll pay on the back. Good luck and Mahalo for reading.
