Home of the Champions Tour Kaanapali Classic for 14 years, the Royal Kaanapali Course also hosted Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, the Canada Cup and the LPGA Kemper Open. Come rediscover why Kaanapali is, where the world comes to play!
Royal Kaanapali Course, Par 71, 6700 Yards
The Royal Kaanapali Course, a Robert Trent Jones Senior design, opened in 1962 and has tested the skills of golf professionals and amateurs alike. In the fall of 2006, this challenging course received a nip/tuck renovation by renowned golf course architect, Robin Nelson. Combining wide fairways and undulating greens, the Royal Kaanapali Course is both distinctive and demanding. Recently celebrating 50 year, the Royal Course has hosted the Champions Tour, LPGA Women’s Kemper Open and Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf.
Kaanapali Kai Course, Par 70, 6388 Yards
The Kaanapali Kai, originally a Par 3 executive course (Arthur Jack Snyder design) was also recently renovated (2005). A Par 70, this course combines narrow fairways and a need for a deft touch around the greens. With four sets of tees and keiki (kids) tees, this course is perfect for all levels of play. Many of the holes are nestled into the West Maui Mountains and have beautiful panoramic views of the neighboring islands. The Kai Course hosted the Golf Channel’s #1 series, Big Break Ka’anapali in 2008.
