Makena Golf Course features an award-winning golf and resort shop, locker rooms, practice range, and a fleet of state-of-the-art golf carts with on-board GPS systems.   After a game of golf, enjoy your favourite beverage at Cafe on the Green complimented with stunning views, cooling sea breezes, and al fresco dining on the cafe terrace.
Makena Golf Course is open from sunrise to sunset daily. Tee times may be arranged up to 90 days in advance.

One of Maui's only sea-to-mountain 18-hole golf courses in all natural surroundings, the Makena Golf Course was ranked in the Top 10 Hawaiian Golf Courses by Golf Digest.

The Makena Golf Course is one of the last courses on Maui to remain in its original, natural state, offering panoramic views of native kiawe forest and indigenous trees, ancient Hawaiian rock walls, natural streams and gullies, and abundant wildlife. It's as much a remarkable nature walk as it is an unforgettable golf outing. The course is a natural test of golf - winding up, down, over and around the verdant foothills of Maui's 10,028-foot-high dormant volcano, Mt. Haleakala, unique among Maui golf resorts.

The Makena Beach & Golf Resort is open all year. However, the surf season for the South Coast of Maui is between May and October.
