Vacation golf should be a combination of adventure, possibly a sprinkling of history, some spectacular scenery if you’re lucky and it should be with good company. During a recent reprieve from life, I was fortunate enough to play a couple of courses in Maui, some places with some serious sex appeal. The Royal Ka’anapali Course and The Challenge at Manele, located on the island of Lana’I, were my two playgrounds. However they couldn’t have been more different.

When you arrive at the entrance to Maui's historic Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa, a guest is prone to that feeling that everyone likes to experience with their first impression of a holiday destination.

That feeling, in a word, is, 'Wow'. 
 
Not trying to sound ridiculously simplistic here, but that was indeed the honest, simultaneously audible reaction from each member of our family as we pulled up to this classic, tropical resort.

Maui County's Best 18 Holes - Back Nine

Last Updated on Sunday, 18 March 2012 12:20 Saturday, 17 March 2012 15:23

Inside Golf's Travelling golf writer/reporter Gord Montgomery made the sacrificial journey from his home base in Spruce Grove, Alberta to the paradise that is Maui and managed to play some very nice golf courses. And obviously whenever one has that opportunity it's imperitive that a 'best of' list gets compiled. Sooo.....here it is. We started with the first nine of Gord's Best 18 holes in the County of Maui in a previous article. Now we present the back nine.

No. 10 - The opening par 4 on the back nine is No. 4 at the Royal Ka’anapali, a not-overly-hard hole at only 359 yards off the Blue tees.
 
The hole sets up as a dogleg right but cutting the corner isn’t easy as trees and a massive bunker protect that side of the fairway. 
 
To the left there’s lots of room but if you overshoot the fairway, an approach shot out of the tough rough doesn’t guarantee you of getting to the putting surface.
 
Speaking of the green, it has a false front on it, so anything hit to the front edge is in danger of coming back to where it started.
