Nestled between the gentle slopes of Haleakala and the white sandy shores of South Maui, the 18-hole golf course at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort could easily be called a golfer’s paradise for our private charter jet passengers.
Open from sunrise to sunset, golfers have the unique opportunity to play where nature, beauty and skill come together in this challenging course with views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean, Molokini Crater and the neighboring island of Kahoolawe. Opened in 1993, the Makena Golf Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and includes the second longest hole in the state of Hawaii at 620 yards.
The course begins with a par 4 at 417 yards and weaves alongside native foliage, natural ravines and Hawaiian archeology as ancient rock walls are found just outside the greens. Use precision to avoid the outcroppings of black lava rock, evidence of the dormant volcano, which can easily hide your ball around hole 5 and use skill to safely send your ball over the ravine on hole 6. Try limiting your gaze to only a few seconds at the breathtaking view on hole 12 and take note of the 620 yard distance on hole 14. The course ends with a par 4 at 422 yards.
You’ll be greeted with a crisp cold towel to refresh you upon returning to the clubhouse after finishing your game. Take a few moments to browse the items in the pro shop or have a bite to eat at the restaurant, Café on the Green.
Manicured greens, stunning views of the South Maui coastline and pristine golf carts which come with GPS, towels, tees and bottled water, this golf course is 40 minutes away from where your private charter jet will land in Maui, and is just minutes from the Inspirato Wailea Residences or a pleasant coastal drive from the new Kapalua Residence.
