At a Glance
Highlights: The Elleair Maui Course is out of the resorts and is at the northern end of Kihei. It has many new amenities such as gps carts and lit golf range, there is no other course as relaxing as Elleair on the leeward south shore.
Challenges: Fairways are well maintained, tree lined with some gnarly out of bounds areas. Several holes run along the busy roadway, testing your focus, but most holes are quiet, turning inland and utilize the slope to create more challenging approaches to the greens.
Holes/Yardage: 18-Par 72- 6404 yards Blue/6003 White/ 5265 Red
Price Range: Reasonable: $110 for cart and greens fee during peak, but drops to as low as $35 in afternoons. "Play Programs" for multiple rounds are great deals.
Location: Kihei, Maui
Bonuses: Lesser known but quality Maui golf course, and playable by all skill levels. Pro-shop with club rentals on-site. Carts come with gps, and auto scorecards adding to accuracy of play. Also has a lighted driving range for some cool evening practice, as well as a practice green and chipping area.
This Kihei course is not as famous as many of its' south side neighbors, but that can be a good thing. Elleair Maui has undergone lots of top quality renovations and provides a good value in a relaxing atmosphere. The weather is dry and the views are epic as the fairways wind along the moderate slope. Many holes have a fun playability factor such as reachable par 5's where "birdies" and "eagles" are possibilities.
The Elleair Golf Course can get hot in the mid-day into early afternoons so early or late tee times recommended. They have an easy online booking system that posts some great last minute deals.
