Enjoy the Best Golf Courses on Maui

Best Golf Courses on Maui

One of the reasons I love living on Maui is certainly the access to an abundance of year-round world-class golf.  Not only does the weather allow for playing 12 months a year, but the island is such an amazing backdrop for a great variety of beautiful and challenging golf courses. Before I get ahead of myself, I should preface all of this with the fact that I’m not a scratch golfer or even close, but I can put an ok round together. Most of all,  I appreciate getting some time outside and just going out for a fun round with friends while enjoying a few refreshments along the way. 

That being said, some of the courses on Maui are tough! The wind is only one of the things you’ll notice affecting your score, but…

Non-Profits on Maui

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."

–Aesop

Finding Ways to Give Back on Maui

The spirit of Hawaii is rooted in community and kindness. The word 'Kokua' specifically defines this spirit when it is combined with a desire to help others unselfishly.

Live Your Best Island Life on Maui

Moving to Maui

Updated 10/13/2021: Having just celebrated my eleven-year 'Mauiversary', I look back and realize I knew nothing about Maui when I moved here! I had never even been to Hawaii or Maui before. Prior to deciding to move to Maui, I had been living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and if you've ever spent much time there you know it's amazing, but year-round the weather and career opportunities can be challenging. So, I made up my mind to sell my car, pack my stuff, and start a new life on Maui really knowing very little about the island. 

Truth be told, I had lived in the Virgin Islands for a short period of time and knew a little about island life in general. I knew Maui had more opportunities and things to do than St.…
