Kaanapali Royal Golf Course
Greens Aeration Date: May 7, 2019
- "Looks like she hit the green Jim"
The Royal Ka'anapali Course, Par 71, 6,700 yards opened its lush fairways in 1962 and is typically a Robert Trent Jones Sr course – One of only two designed by him in Hawaii.
Taking advantage of the rolling landscape to create gently sloping fairways and large contoured greens to ensure a challenging approach to each hole, Robert Trent Jones Sr created a challenging course which requires careful club selection and putting skills.
The Royal Ka'anapali Course begins at sea level with a par 5 hole extending 550 yards. The course hugs the shoreline before winding its way to the West Maui Mountain foothills. Arnold Palmer was quoted as saying that the 18th hole (par 4) was one of the best and most challenging finishing holes he had ever played. The 449 yard hole plays longer than it looks, hugging the brackish water canal the entire length of the fairway and green, making it a memorable last hole.
