Kāʻanapali Golf Courses is the only facility across the island of Maui to offer a FootGolf Course for residents and visitors alike.

Nine and 18 holes of FootGolf is available at Kāʻanapali after 4 p.m. seven days a week starting at $15 to walk and an additional $15 to ride a shared golf cart.

Players can bring their own soccer balls or rent one for $5 per round.

Kāʻanapali Golf Courses joined several other Billy Casper Golf-managed courses across America to launch the program in 2015, and it has quickly become a popular afternoon activity for all ages and skill levels.

Kāʻanapali hosts an annual fall FootGolf League, along with occasional weddings, reunions, birthday parties and other events on the FootGolf course.

“We love to be able to offer our guests the FootGolf experience at Kāʻanapali – this sport has quickly become a new way for families and non-golfers to experience the golf facility,” stated PGA Director of Golf, Sutee Nitakorn. “We also work with the resort’s hotel sales staff and their corporate meeting planners to offer a great non-golf activity that all of their attendees can participate in. FootGolf is a fun team-building activity and we’ve seen some really unique events here at Kāʻanapali as a result,” Nitakorn added.

In FootGolf, each hole is assigned a “par” and players tee (kick) off using a soccer ball, strategically kicking it from tee to “green”, until they make it in the 21-inch cup. Holes are cut into the rough to protect conditions of fairways and greens, and to avoid affecting everyday golfers. The American FootGolf League provides a rulebook for players to follow. Kāʻanapali’s 9-hole loop stretches 1,165 yards and is a par 34. Guests are able to play unlimited FootGolf after 4 p.m. on Kāʻanapali’s course.

To book FootGolf tee times, call (808) 661-3691 or toll free at (866) 454-4653. To inquire about birthday parties, reunions, weddings, team building or other group events, ask for Sutee Nitakorn or email him at [email protected]
