Where Maui - - Where Now -

To ar­rive at Wailea is to en­ter the pearly gates of Hawai­ian golf. An hour south of Kā‘ana­pali, Wailea’s three award-win­ning cour­ses— Old Blue, Emer­ald and Gold —em­body the best of both classic and new de­sign. It’s the only Hawai‘i re­sort with 54 holes of cham­pi­onship golf and a David Lead­bet­ter Golf Acad­emy. Add a 12-acre prac­tice fa­cil­ity and a na­tion­ally ac­claimed golf shop, and it’s hardly sur­pris­ing that in 2010 the read­ers of Condé

Nast Trav­eler voted Wailea the world’s No. 1 golf re­sort. Visi­tors to Wailea can play all these great holes year-round; there is no off-sea­son. Dur­ing the win­ter, how­ever, there is an ad­di­tional at­trac­tion: That’s when the hump­back whales come down to va­ca­tion in Hawai­ian wa­ters. But even with­out golf or whales, Wailea is sin­gu­lar in its at­trac­tions and beauty.

En­joy the views while swing­ing away.
