Detailed description

Kaanapali Golf Course, is a Resort, 36 hole golf course facility located in LAHAINA, Hawaii. The 2 courses are the Kaanapali Kai (South) course and the Royal Kaanapali (North) Course.

Kaanapali Kai (South) Course was originally created as an executive course and was later redesigned by architect Arthur Jack Snyder in 1976. At 6,400 yards, the Par 70 course is the more forgiving golf course with subtle, undulating greens that accomodates all levels of play.

The land which Kaanapali Golf Courses was founded, originally housed a sugar cane plantation. Players will see the Sugar Cane Train steam past several holes on the course (now used for tours) and are reminded of Hawaii's rich culture and history.

Along many holes on the Kai Course lie natural canals, gulches and lava rock boundaries. The course is landscaped with native flowers along the trails like the hibiscus, bougainvillea and plumeria, as well as the Norfolk Pines and coconut trees that border many fairways. These features are part of what makes the course most enjoyable.

Kaanapali Kai (South) Course was renovated in 2005 by Hawaii's most prolific golf course architect, Robin Nelson. This course focuses on strategy of your round, not necessarily distance or strength, which is why this course is enjoyed by both the beginner and avid golfer.
