Kapalua: Bay Course: The first of the three courses at Kapalua, the Bay Course was designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane. It was completed in 1975 and benefits from its maturity if not the extensive surrounding development. The vegetation with coconut palms, ironwoods and Cook pines adds to the rich colorful beauty of a layout that stretches toward the beach and a rocky inlet back up and inland among pineapple fields. Not as difficult as the Plantation Course and comparable to the Village Course, the Bay Course is perhaps the most beautiful and a lot of fun to play. There are three short holes on the front with the Fifth, requiring a tee shot across the ocean inlet, being the most picturesque. The Back features three long holes to go with the two on the Front, all of which are reachable in two. The eighteenth is the longest. Along the way are a pleasing variety of Par 4's with the Sixteenth being perhaps the most unique. There a meandering stream splits the fairway into two distinctive halves with each offering its own strategic advantages and disadvantages.
