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.
