Bad service ruins reader's round at Kapalua's Plantation Course

The Plantation Course in Kapalua was everything and more than I thought it would be. I played it in September when winds were gusting up to 35 mph.

Bad service left reader Robert Lawson with a bad taste for the Kapalua Plantation Course

I would not recommend the Plantation Course, as you cannot score well in these conditions. Also, the service inside the pro shop was horrendous. No smile, no welcome, no information. I went to the driving range to warm up but there were no balls there. Turns out you need to get a token from the cart attendants. No information was provided in the pro shop to that effect. No information supplied at all.

You would think that with the stiff rate of $260 that there would be balls at the range. The pro shop experience detracted from the whole experience. That guy needs to get another job, because he is certainly miserable doing that one!
