Scenic King Kamehameha Golf Club set on the dramatic slopes of Maui
King Kamehameha Golf Club in Wailuku was carved from the dramatic slopes of the West Maui mountains, providing views that stretch across a lush green expanse that sits between two ancient volcanoes. Ted Robinson originally designed the golf course in 1991, and in 2005 his son, Ted Robinson Jr., refreshed the layout. The course was reworked but the renovations only built on its original appeal.
King Kamehameha Golf Club has always offered immaculate conditions on both the greens and fairways. Golfers will be thankful that putts roll true on the golf course's velvety-smooth greens since the dramatic undulations are the layout's true test. The challenges don't end on the greens either, with deep bunkers throughout and water hazards on five holes.
The stunning beauty of the landscape, free of bordering homes and the bustle of the city, is a rewarding respite from the formidable layout. It also thankfully plays at a comfortable pace rather than being a five-hour test.
In addition to its golf course, King Kamehameha G.C. is known for its elegant clubhouse, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
