Don’t let anyone tell you cheap golf is bad golf in hawaii!! The Dunes was an awesome experience. It is sneaky challenging!! The fairways look wide open but they have strategically placed hazards in the perfect location!! Greens were awesome fairways fluffy and an overall excellent experience!!

Special mention you Kenny.. super nice and is the definition of Customer service!! I’m an Arizona golf addict and the dunes and Kenny pale in comparison to some of the service at high end courses.

We’re going to go back again on Thursday for the deals!!

Will DEFINITELY play this again!!

Thanks Dunes for a perfect first time Maui golf experience!!

This course was a pleasant surprise! It plays long, challenging approach shots to the greens and even with the blind holes, it was fun. With the weather as it was, our pace of play was a smashing 3 hours. Not many golfers braving the rain today.

This golf course is a mountain goat's dream layout.

There are few level lies here. The layout meanders among a series of dunes and swales between valleys. It rightly should be named The Swales at Maui Lani.

The fairways are thick and there are no rolls. The forward tees are in terrible condition with bare dirt instead of grass.

The greens are heavily grassed with the dreaded "Turtleback" design that is high in the center and lower all around. Most shots landing in the middle of these greens will wind up running off. They putt true but require a firmer stroke.

Many of the greens here appear to be new and they are in good condition, several including #9 are in bad shape.

There are several water hazards on this layout but the real terror is generated by the deep bunkering generously spread throughout this design.

Hole #16 has so many traps it appears as if the hole is one big trap with no fairway.

The Par three holes are relatively short but with small elevated greens and deep bunkers protecting them.

This is a tough layout playing on a calm morning. Teeing off on a windy afternoon could increase scores and lose balls simultaneously.

Great course for the money. Challenging with some great views of the mountains in the background. Fairways were nice and lush, also very impressed with the condition of the greens. All but one of the greens were in excellent shape. Great layout with a few tight fairways. Overall great course for the money!

Nice course and pace of play. Most fairways are generous, excellent course for Women to enjoy for the red tees are placed forward enough to not be overwhelmingly long, especially the par 5’s. Fairways could be a little more lush and several of the greens had sand on them but didn’t distract from having a great time......no ocean views but a beautiful course nonetheless.

The course is fun. The front 9 has some tight driving holes.

The back has some fun driving holes especially #10 where a good tee shot rolls down hill forever!!

Bad things

Fairways were very thin, and brown. I thought perhaps the grass in the area had gone dormant, but I played another course and that was not the case.

Secondly they had just aerated and the greens were like sandpaper with the sand.

The views are awesome, you see the backdrops of the Hawaiian mountains.

Would like to play again mid summer when the fairways are lush.

The roughs are tough as the ball does sink down.

Fabulous golf course beautifully laid out

Fairways great and greens manicured to perfection and ran straight and true

A joy to play on

Locker room and shower though left a lot to be desired - the only thing to let the Dunes down

I teed off early, about 6:40am and saw nobody the entire time. I played two balls off the tee on the back and still finished within 2 and a half hours. Great track. Greens were incredible, except for 2 holes which the greens had been punched.

For $100, it’s a great course and the drive is simple, especially from kehei

Played yrs ago when first opened so had low expectation, went back on advice of a local. The course is in excellent condition, has lot of fun challenging holes . Greens were really good but

large and not easy to read, entire course was in great shape. Played the course twice during our

vacation. One problem they do not have a ranger,

so we got stuck behind a slow 4some with no one

in front of them and they would not let us thru, so finally skipped a hole. The staff is friendly and very helpful and by all accounts the restaurant has excellent food at reasonable prices, many non-golfers came for lunch. Got a great rate thru

Tee off, altho the course does have specials and

considering the quality of the course and its condition very reasonable.
