Places to Relax After a Round
Among golf's great traditions is the so-called 19th hole. No matter how the first 18 go, the 19th is sure to offer comfort and cheer, not to mention a chilled beverage. Here's a look at some of the best.
Kapalua boasts three 19th holes with great fare and views: the Plantation House has a commanding view of the Plantation Course's 18th hole, the Pailolo Channel, and the island of Molokai beyond; the Pineapple Grill overlooks the Bay Course's 18th; and Merriman's Kapalua sits beside the ocean at Kapalua Bay.
At Wailea's Gold and Emerald courses, Gannon's overlooks the sea in a lovely garden setting and serves excellent food. The restaurant, with its elegant Red Bar, is owned and managed by famed chef Beverly Gannon of Haliimaile General Store and Joe's Bar & Grill in Wailea.
The Kahili Restaurant, a plantation-style clubhouse at the King Kamehameha Golf Club's Kahili Course, offers commanding views of the ocean on both sides of the island and of 10,000-foot Haleakala.
Café O'Lei at the Dunes at Maui Lani offers indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the golf course, as well as a stunning view of the West Maui Mountains. There is also a Café O'Lei restaurant at the Waiehu Golf Course.
And though not affiliated with elleair, golfers from this course frequent Lulu's and Henry's in the heart of Kihei.
