THE DUNES AT MAUI LANI
18-Hole Course Map
350 yd Par 4, HDCP. 6
Our opening hole is a dogleg left, 350 yard par 4 with a great risk-reward off the tee. Draw the ball left to shorten the hole, or play it safe by hitting to the right to avoid the trees and pot bunkers. Watch out for grass swales to the left of the green on your approach shot and you’ll have a great start to your round.
291 yd Par 4, HDCP. 12
The short 291 yard par 4 2nd greets you with a wide fairway and a straight shot to the green. Avoid the bunkers to the right or carry them with a drive of at least 164 yards. Take care to avoid the grass swales and rough on the left and the ravine to the right and you’ll have a manageable approach shot to a large, welcoming green.
92 yd Par 3, HDCP. 18
Prevailing winds carry shots left toward the grass bunker. The right side is well-protected by the rough and two bunkers. The center of the green is the best play on this short par 3, but on a still day don’t be afraid to attack the pin for a well-earned attempt at birdie.
451 yd Par 5, HDCP. 4
The real challenge at the Dunes begins at our par 5 4th. Laying up can leave a blind second shot with a mid to long iron or hybrid, or play aggressive and carry the bunkered dune. Long drives that carry the dune make the green accessible in two shots. The fairway narrows on second shots played from afar, so use more club to carry the false front on this undulated, elevated green.
301 yd Par 4, HDCP. 14
The pond comes into play off the tee with prevailing trade winds and slope headed left. Favor the right side off the tee. You can play it safe and lay up with a fairway wood, or get aggressive with a driver, letting your ball ride the slope down the fairway for a manageable chip into this water-protected green.
148 yd Par 3, HDCP. 8
If water is your nemesis, don’t be afraid to club up on the par 3 6th. Shots that carry the putting surface will stay safely on the hill surrounding this green like an amphitheater. Hit it short, and you could find yourself in the water or the strategically placed pot bunker fronting the green.
299 yd Par 4, HDCP. 16
After navigating the hazards of 4, 5, and 6, The par 4 7th is a welcomed sight with its wide fairway. Avoid the pot bunker to the left, or carry it if you’re long off the tee. Hitting to the left opens up the best angle into the green. Place your approach toward the center of the green, and take care to avoid the two bunkers on the right.
407 yd Par 4, Hdcp. 1
This narrow par 4 carries our Handicap 1 rating. The fairway widens beyond the directional stake and feeds into another speed slot. Favor the right side and play to roll your tee shot down the hill. Use extra club to carry any approach shot played to the back-right portion of the green.
510 YD Par 5, HDCP. 3
Our signature hole, the par 5 18th offers an enticing risk-reward approach to the green. Let your driver rip off the tee onto the straight fairway, as the bunkers on the left and the water on the right will be out of reach for most. Play it safe with a second shot past the second bunker, or play aggressive with a bold shot skirting the water to get on in two.
