FOUR SEASONS RESORT MAUI AT WAILEA
This is on the southern, dry side of the island, where rain rarely chases golfers away. There are two Robert Trent Jones Jr. 18s (Golf and Emerald) and a charming “grand lady” of Hawaiian resort courses, the Old Blue.
GRAND WAILEA, A WALDORF ASTORIA RESORT
There’s an elaborate and elegant hotel just west of the Wailea complex with access to all three of its ocean-view layouts.
The oceanfront hotel is separated from ocean cliffs by an ancient Hawaiian burial site. To its south is its resort’s extensive practice facility, complete with three practice holes. On its left is the Arnold Palmer-co-designed Bay Course. A bit farther away to the right is the Coore-and-Crenshaw Plantation Course, long home of the PGA Tour’s tournament of champions.
An unsurpassed setting on bluffs overlooking big waves of North Shore surf, with rugged volcanic cliffs just to the south. Main 18 of Makai Golf Course has been totally retrofit, and the Woods nine is a charming walking option.
