Recommended accommodations for proximity: Makena Beach & Golf Resort
As the home course of The Champions Skins Game between 2001 and 2007, the 7,078-yard Wailea Gold is the most challenging of Wailea's trio, with a rugged and masterful design that takes advantage of the terrain's natural undulations. But four to six tee boxes on every hole make it a suitable track for virtually every player. Created by architect Robert Trent Jones II, the Gold was honored by both GolfMagazine and Golf Digest as one of the country's 10 best new resort courses upon its opening. It has also been recognized by the Maui Historical Society for its preservation of prehistoric lava rock walls during contruction.
