The Plantation Course at Kapalua Golf club Review
The Plantation Course at Kapalua Golf Club was designed by 2 of the most famous architects of our times, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw and it was first open to players in 1991. The golf course sits on an idyllic piece of real estate in Maui, Hawaii and its currently ranked 97th by the Golf Digest magazine in its 2013-2014 issue with regard to the Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the United States (ranked 19th for public courses, nota bene) and second best in its home state. To begin with, you must know that the view down of the eighteenth fairway on the Plantation Course at Kapalua has become legendary. Also, this true gem of a golf course gained iconic status since the US PGA Tour started kicking off here, with the season beginning at Kapalua. When it comes to pure golf, stunning views and lots of fun, there arent many golf courses that can be compared to the Plantation Course at Kapalua, especially if were talking about the finishing hole. The Plantation Course at Kapalua Golf club makes for the perfect combo for golf aficionados: its built in a Hawaiian paradise and its all about golf in its purest form.
If you throw into this epic mix Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaws creativity, youll understand that playing this baby makes for one of the finest experiences in ones life, obviously, if youre a golf purist. The Kapalua offers arguably the largest/widest fairways in the US, breathtaking, even jaw dropping surroundings which include ocean vistas and jungle, not to mention the rugged rolling terrain on which the golf course is built.The large greens fit perfectly the huge property and I was often wondering why the Plantation Course at Kapalua Golf club is so underrated by national publications. I know what youre thinking, I already told you in the preamble about Kapaluas accolades, but I think they dont do it justice by a long shot. Bottom line, this gem of a golf course is as unique as it gets, lacking one single tree to bother the golfer, featuring incredible elevation changes, sweeping vistas and trade winds that will challenge you round after round in different ways, difficult greens to putt and, last but not least, fantastic ocean views.
