The Village Course opened in 1980. It is the second of a pair at Kapalua to be designed by Arnold Palmer, this time with Ed Seay. Beginning high up on the coast on the northwestern tip of Maui the layout meanders back into the mountains among pineapple fields and Cook pines. Elevation changes and varying wind currents contribute to the challenge of this, the easiest, but perhaps the most fun of the three resort courses. Variety of terrain, vegetation and an imaginative sequencing of the holes contribute to the adventure of play. Especially notable is the sequence of 3 holes beginning with the Fifth. The Fifth and Sixth extend out onto a ridge and surround a cozy quiet lake. The scenic vista of the Pacific is magnificently broad with views of two bays, Makalapuna Point and an array of pineapple fields, all of which contrasts with the narrow and tightly enclosed fairways. The Seventh opens up to a wide downhill fairway that is crossed by a meandering barranca and dotted with bunkers.
