Make sure to test out South Maui's golfing facilities while you're on Maui!
September 09, 2016

Whether you are an avid or amateur golfer, be sure to get out and golf on Maui! Some people even come to Maui specifically to golf on some of Maui's amazing courses created by some of golf's most famous designers. Maui is a renowned golf destination with experience hosting major tournaments, including the PGA tour. Stunning views and consistent weather, make golfing on Maui a beautiful affair. Perfect conditions with sunny weather and light trade winds will greet you! Maui's courses are challenging and engaging for all experience levels. South Maui's courses nestled in the shadow of Haleakala are especially lovely. When you stay at one of our South Maui vacation rentals, you will be close to four different breathtaking golf courses! The Wailea Golf Club and the Maui Nui Golf club, each house spectacular courses for you to enjoy on your Maui getaway.

Wailea Golf Club

The luxury area of Wailea is home to the Wailea Golf Club, which houses three equally impressive courses for you to hone your skills.

Wailea Emerald Course
The Wailea Emerald Course is considered to be one of Wailea Golf's more leisurely courses, awarding golfers, ocean views from every hole and carpet-like fairways. Each hole also has four to six tee boxes, enabling golfers to adjust according to their skill level. Test your abilities on this engaging South Maui Course!

Designer : Robert Trent Jones Junior in 1994

Wailea Blue Course
The Wailea Blue Course was the first course built at the Wailea Golf Club in 1972. It is considered to be a true Hawaiian classic that everyone should golf at least once. The course winds through the heart of Wailea with generous fairways and incredible views of Haleakala and neighboring islands.

Designer: Arthur Jack Snyder in 1972

Wailea Gold Course
The Wailea Gold Course is the most challenging of Wailea Golf Club's courses. It hosted the Championship Skins Game from 2001 to 2007. It is over 7,000 yards! If you're looking to push your golf abilities, this is the course for you. Difficulties include lakes, narrow driving alleys and fairways, and lava rock! This course has won awards from best design to best new course. The courses' designer, Robert Trent Jones Junior, dubbed his creation a 'thinking player's course' and an excellent test of golf ability.

Designer: Robert Trent Jones Junior in 1994

Maui Nui Golf Club

South Maui's other golf club is known for being the most fun and friendly golf experience on Maui. Located in the heart of Kihei, just off of the Piilani Highway, it is near popular Maui restaurants and the Maui Brewing Company. Depending on where you are staying in South Maui, this course may be the most convenient. The course features exceptional views, hybrid Bermuda turf grass, and wide fairways. Their on-site restaurant Kono's on the Green is the perfect place to unwind after a stirring game of golf with the delicious food, friendly service, and exceptional happy hour.

How You Can Volunteer on Your Maui Vacation

Volunteer on your Maui Vacation!
August 26, 2016

Many travelers find themselves wanting to learn more about the Maui community and culture through volunteer work on their vacations. Maui has many different opportunities for those who want to give back to this beautiful island. Below are three unique opportunities that will give you the chance to volunteer in incredible places and make an impact on the community and eco-system.

Haleakala National Park:

Haleakala National Park is one of Maui's largest attractions and is a breathtaking sight. Help protect the park's incredible eco-system from dangerous invasive species. This is a free activity offered by the Pacific Whale Foundation's Volunteering on Vacation Program. Transportation to and from the park, park admission, as well as instruction and education from a naturalist, and a guide, are provided. This program is available every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month. The trip departs from Maalaea Harbor's Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Store at 7:30 AM on the 1st Saturday, and 1:00 PM on the 3rd Saturday. The duration of the trip is 7 hours, which includes time for a picnic in the park, so be sure to pack a lunch and plenty of water! A truly amazing backdrop and a thoughtful and educational way to give back.

Clean the Reef:

Trilogy's Blue 'Aina Reef Cleanups are a great way to give back, by helping to clean and maintain Maui's reef. They offer monthly reef cleanups around Maui on one of the Trilogy excursions' boats. Be sure to book a spot in advance as spots fill up. A $30 donation is required to participate and is given directly to select non-profits. Lunch and refreshments will be provided on board. This volunteer opportunity is a great way to help restore Maui's colorful reef, especially for visitors who come to Maui and enjoy snorkeling and learning about Maui's underwater world.

Beach Buddies Visitor Program:

Provide a shelter dog with a needed break from shelter life! The Maui Humane Society offers the Beach Buddies Visitor Program, which provides visitors with the opportunity to bring one of the chosen 'Beach Buddies' dogs to the beach. This program is available every Wednesday and Saturday from 10 am to 3pm. You will be giving these dogs a chance to go to the beach and maybe even catch the eye of someone who wants to adopt them! Arrive at the shelter at 10 am and you will be greeted by staff or a volunteer, who will direct you. A 'Beach Buddy' backpack with necessities will be provided for you and you will meet your Beach Buddy who will be bathed and ready to go for a fun-filled day! A map of pet-friendly places is also provided, so you will be able to explore the island with your new Beach Buddy. Sign up early as availability is limited!

As you can see, if you're looking to volunteer while on your Maui vacation, there are a bunch of fun and unique opportunities available. From helping with the environment to having fun with our companion needy furry island friends. It feels great to know that you can step out from your Wailea vacation rental and help make a difference!
