The bad news is that there are no Makawao golf courses. However, the good news is that if you’re staying in the area and looking to play golf you will not have to travel far. There is a golf course that is located in Pukalani and other courses that are located closeby in Paia and Kahului.
The reason why there are no golf courses in Makawao is that it is just too rainy of a climate. The consistent rain would make for a muddy course that would be literally impossible to maintain. Maui is a small island and has very predictable microclimate zones. Located right next to Makawao is Pukalani. Pukalani is around the corner from most of the afternoon tradewinds weather that brings in the majority of Makawao’s rain. The course is located only about a 10-minute drive from the center of Makawao town so if you want to play golf there you can do so without a significant commute.
