Pukalani Country Club, Maui – Hawaii, USA

For our first round of golf on Maui we headed to the Pukalani Country Club which was located on the hillside of “Up-Country” Maui.  The course is situated at an elevation of 1,100 feet on the slopes of Mt. Haleakala, the dormant volcano that makes up the island’s eastern half.  Mt Haleakala whose name in Hawaiian means “House of the Rising Sun” and is reflected in the club’s logo.


The course was designed by Bob Baldock and built in 1980.

Pukalani in Hawaiian means “Entrance to Heaven” which is quite apt given it’s elevation and the stunning views it offered on some of the holes.

It was a good course to get warmed up on and we all enjoyed our round there.




This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
