Breaking out of the leeward resort areas for a golf game in Waikapu can bring a nice change of environment. The Kahili Course is set amidst the foothills along the dry edge of the West Maui Mountains along route 30. The weather is drier, but the course is lush and green. Many holes have a fun playability factor such as reachable par 5's where "birdies" and "eagles" are possibilities.
Kahili Golf Course can get windy in the mid-day into early afternoons so early tee times recommended. After your game, take a short drive to the adjacent private club the Kamehameha Country Club. The Clubhouse is a certified Frank Lloyd Wright designed building and is part of his national registry.
