Wow. What an experience. The friendly service, the views, the lunch, everything was perfect. Everyone at Makai was well-trained and professional. Never had I had such a fun experience at a golf course. Even their technology integration worked seamlessly. The carts were equipped with GPS touch screens giving us a wealth of information (distance and shape) and the ability to order a lunch (between front and back nine) at the 8th hole. We took advantage of that and when we finished the front nine, two delicious chicken paninis loaded with pesto were waiting for us. Ocean and mountain views were breathtaking. We saw Queen's Bath and the waterfalls on the mountain, plus gorgeous wildlife everywhere. I've never seen so many interesting-looking birds, roosters, geese, etc. Impressive, all of it.

While staying at the Hanalei Bay Resort, we won two free tickets to the Makai Golfcourse Sunset Tour. Basically this is a nose-to-tail golf cart tour around the course during sunset. I think it costx $50 per person at full price. It really is a spectacular view!
Only because it was funny, I have to tell you that they really hyped us up about the "plumeria forest"... which was sadly 5 plumeria trees with barely any blossoms at all. Haha!
However, the ocean viewpoints were definitely worth the value! It is an amazing opportunity to see the best sunset...great photo taking opportunities, and quite romantic. This is a very low impact activity for any age group. The golf carts are quite nice, and include monitors with GPS systems too.
As you approach some of the cliffs, you also get a great viewpoint of Queen's Bath.

WOW. What more can I say? My husband and I LOVED playing this course while we were visiting Kauai for our honeymoon. The tee boxes were like butter, the service was incredible, and the views were unbeatable. If you only have time for 9-holes, go for the FRONT NINE. Otherwise, you don't want to miss the entire course. We felt like we were in golf heaven as the course staff offered FREE, fresh pineapple throughout our game. It was one of the best things we did on our trip!
