On the southern side of Maui sits the resort community of Wailea, There is a noticeably relaxed pace here, even by Hawaiian standards. Maybe that's because once you've arrived at Wailea, you're in no hurry to go anywhere else.
Wailea's protected location along the sunny south shore, helps create ocean conditions as calm and refreshing as you could ever hope for. And it's here you will find the pristine white sand beaches you've been dreaming about, just steps from your hotel room.
Wailea is the only resort in Hawaii that has 54 holes of championship golf. The three courses, the Old Blue, the Emerald and the Gold each are unique in both layout and character. The first thing you'll notice about Wailea's courses is the stunning views that greet you from nearly every hole. The second thing that immediately jumps out at you is the tremendous condition of the golf courses. The maintenance standards at Wailea are very high and the great conditioning will help you shoot lower scores. And finally the climate here for golf is as good as you'll find anywhere in Hawaii. The average yearly rainfall is only about 10 inches just enough to keep the courses lush and beautiful.
The Old Blue course was original at Wailea and still remains a favorite for both visitors and locals. Old Blue was once the home of one of the LPGA's most prestigious events, the Women's Kemper Open. But with generous fairways and large greens, the Blue is both challenging and fun for golfers of all skill levels.
The Emerald Course is a terrific layout that features colorful landscaping, wonderful bunkering and several very unique locations. Like the 10th and 17th holes where a shared green bordered by a lake offers golfers a number of strategic options. And the par 5 finishing hole on the Emerald is a beauty.
The Gold Course at Wailea is gloriously beautiful along with being a wonderful test of golf. It features lush landscaping, sprawling bunkers and intriguing lava outcroppings. On this course you'll find tremendous diversity in both the hole shapes and sizes.
