It never gets old.
I’ve been to Maui I think 23 or 24 times now, but I never get tired of the beaches and the mountains and the views, not to mention the food and the towns and the fantastic golf at Kapalua.
I thought about playing Kapalua’s Plantation course on my last visit but it’s pretty tough and I was organizing a family round with folks of varying ability. As much as I wanted to play the Plantation loop, where they just finished the Hyundai tournament of champions yesterday, we opted instead for the gentler but still fun Bay course.
Here are some photos of the course, along with some shots of the area in general. Instead of a beach hotel, this time we opted for lots of space at a series of condos at Kaanapali Royal, located on the Kaanapali Golf Course. They were terrific units; spacious and welcoming with all the amenities, and just a short walk to Whalers’ Village for shopping and to fabulous Kaanapali Beach. Highly recommended, even if you’re not a golfer.
