Plantation Course Kapalua: A Bucket List Golf Course

Plantation Course Kapalua: A Bucket List Golf Course

One of the highlights of the Go Golfing Hawaiian Islands Golf Cruise is the Plantation Course, Kapalua, Maui. Consistently ranked as the #1 golf course in Hawaii, playing The Plantation Course is sure to be on every golfer’s bucket list.


Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the course was designed on a grand scale in keeping with its location on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains and offers dramatic ocean views from virtually every hole.


Its lengthy 7,411-yard par 73 layout challenges the pros but its wide fairways and generous greens make it very playable for every golfer.  With dramatic elevation changes, this course offers plenty of downhill tee shots. You’ll feel like one of the pros when – with the aid of the aggressive slope of the 18th fairway –  you will enjoy hitting one of the longest drives of your life.


The Plantation Course is the site of the PGA TOUR Hyundai Tournament of Champions each January featuring an elite field of previous years’ PGA TOUR winners. The field has included golf greats such as Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Justin Leonard, Ernie Els, Davis Love III and many more. The course record is 62 set by K.J. Choi in 2003 at the Mercedes-Benz Championship and Graeme McDowell at the 2011 Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
