Both courses at Kaanapali offer a challenge to all golfers, from high-handicappers to near-pros. The par-72, 6,305-yard North Course is a true Robert Trent Jones, Sr., design: an abundance of wide bunkers; several long, stretched-out tees; and the largest, most contoured greens on Maui. The tricky 18th hole (par-4, 435 yd.) has a water hazard on the approach to the green. The par-72, 6,250-yard South Course is an Arthur Jack Snyder design; although shorter than the North Course, it requires more accuracy on the narrow, hilly fairways. It also has a water hazard on its final hole, so don't tally up your scorecard until you sink the final putt. Facilities at Kaanapali include a driving range, putting course, and clubhouse with dining. You'll have a better chance of getting a tee time on weekdays.
