GOLFING IN PARADISE
Mākena’s Golf Course highlights the area’s indigenous natural beauty, including the dryland forest remnants, Wiliwili trees, ancient rock formations, and gentle trade winds. It remains one of Maui’s few and most coveted sea-to-mountain golf courses.
Championship Caliber and Natural Beauty
Dennis Wise Designed Course
In 2013, a redesign of the North course at Mākena was entrusted to 35-year veteran of golf design, Dennis Wise. Wise handcrafted each hole’s transformation, creating 18 unique experiences.
As a former Senior Designer of 28 years with architectural legend Tom Fazio, Wise was a leading contributor to an international design firm known for its award-winning golf courses. Wise was the principal lead designer behind 100 prestigious golf courses, several of which are in the Discovery Land Company portfolio.
Replenish and Recharge on the Golf Course
What began as an attempt by Discovery Chairman/CEO Michael Meldman to entertain his young boys on the golf course, has evolved into a cherished Discovery tradition.
Offering refreshing respites and relaxing reposes between golf course holes, Mākena’s comfort stations reflect the local atmosphere and are stocked with Hawaiian treats such as shave ice, an Ahi tuna station, and many other tropical treats.
