Maui Country Club was founded in 1925 and has a rich history with its roots in Maui’s sugar industry.
The Club and golf course was the creation of H.W. Rice and F. F. Baldwin, together with the 46-member Maui Golf Association. Hawaii Commercial & Sugar Company (HC&S) was hired to clear the land, while H.W. Rice went to San Francisco to get materials, including grass seed, to build the golf course. Charlie Chun, from Oahu, was hired as the new club’s first Golf Pro.
In more recent history, the Clubhouse reopened in 2009 following a complete renovation. As a registered historical building, it still maintains its original footprint and is an architectural showpiece.
