Wailuku golf courses are constructed more for the local population than for tourists. Wailuku is home to the only public golf course on Maui, the Waiehu Golf Course. The course is very reasonably priced and plays quite well with some great views of Maui’s north shore. The course is built on the coastline which makes for fantastic scenery, but the onshore winds can be quite strong (especially in the afternoon) so be sure to put an extra layer in your bag, just in case.
The other course that is frequently played by Wailuku is the Dunes At Maui Lani. This course is a links style course with long rough and deep pot bunkers throughout the course. The winds get very strong here and many golfers consider the Dunes one of the most challenging courses on the island. The locals will recommend “clubbing up” when playing here to try to keep your shots as low as possible. High altitude shots can fly like a knuckleball once the wind gets hold of them and should be avoided whenever possible.
