Description:

Set in the gentle hillsides of "Up-Country" Maui, Pukalani...

Set in the gentle hillsides of "Up-Country" Maui, Pukalani Country Club overlooks the Pacific Ocean and offers breath-taking panoranic views of the Valley Isle of Maui. The Pukalani Country Club is nestled at the 1,100 foot elevation level of world famous Mount Haleakala, an extinct volcano whose name in Hawaiian means "House of the Rising Sun" and is appropriately reflected as the golf course's logo. Pukalani's 18 holes were designed by golf course architect Bob Baldock who designed more than 69 public and private golf courses throughout the United States. The Pukalani Country Club's greenery covers nearly 160 acres. Built in 1980, the course is 6,962 yards long from the championship tees, plays to a par 72, and features 19 greens in its 18-hole layout! On hole #3, golfers may choose a tough iron shot across a ravine and into the wind for one green, or a challenging chip shot straight down to a well-trapped green several hundred feet below into the ravine. No other golf course in Hawaii can compare or offer you this unique setting and challenge of our hole #3. "Pukalani" which in Hawaiian means "Entrance to Heaven" certainly describes Pukalani Country Club!

Pukalani is up in the Kula/Pukalani area, upcountry Maui. It's a little cooler than most of the other courses on the island. The course conditions are very good & some of the views are fantastic. The golf carts are the old gas powered type, so they are noisy & don't drive that smoothly. The layout of the course is interesting... More

Golfed a Thursday morning (for $45 w/ cart!) and had an awesome round. Pro shop staff were super friendly and accommodating. The course is very forgiving, which was perfect since it was my first round of the year. Was also nice to get away from the shore and visit Pukalani and Makawao for the day. Would golf here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed on two 18 hole rounds. The views are spectacular and the greens and fairways were wonderful. One of the nicest up kept greens and fairways we experienced while here at Maui.

We love this course on Maui. Friendly staff, not crowded, and the views are spectacular. We've played other courses on Maui, but keep going back to Pukalani for its "local" feel and great rates.

Enjoyed a early morning round my wife and was surprised by the quality of the golf course and it's amazing conditions. It is a classic resort style mountain course with wide open fairways and holes playing down and up the mountain. Great views of West Maui. Discount Tee times on Thursday made it the best golf deal in Maui. It... More

All in great shape - tee box; fairway, greens. Check on Thursday for best price. Staff is very pleasant. The course is kept up very well. The location in the east Maui mountains keeps playing conditions comfortable.

Pukalani is one of our favourite golf experiences on Maui. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The views from the mountain side course are spectacular, the fairways are generous, the greens are in top shape, many have been redone.
