Aloha Maui Country Club ‘ohana!
What a beautiful weekend we had at the club! Plenty of members have been fitness walking the course, heading out to the beach for a swim or a paddle, or simply dropping by for takeout lunch to see a familiar face.
Were it not for everyone showing up with masks (and mahalo for bringing masks!), it almost feels like the regular club, where friends swap stories, shakas, and smiles in the North Shore sunshine and breeze.
We truly feel blessed for the opportunity to serve each one of our members, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon as we move toward our eventual re-opening.
Aloha until then!
Another great lineup of specials today to go with the takeout lunch menu!
As a courtesy to our staff (and to stay compliant with the new government mandates), all members picking up takeout are asked to wear a mask. Mahalo!
Fish Special: Fish and Chips
Plate Lunch Special: Teri Beef and Chop Steak
“What’s with the Rice?” Special: Chili + Rice. Super ono!
Open for takeout 7 days/week from 11am-3pm (yes, even Monday!) Call (808) 877-4690 to place your order for takeout!

“It’s interesting to realize how emotionally convenient it is to have a place to frequently play tennis.”
The personal connection out on the court is as much of a draw as the physical exertion and natural rush of endorphins.
It’s the cat and mouse of learning someone’s game, the mental jigsaw of success, and the cerebral-physical dichotomy that plays out every time you step on the court.
Throw in some lighthearted social banter (and maybe a drink from the bar after!), and it’s little wonder we all miss the game—hopefully we’ll be back soon!
With all the talk of modifications that are currently being made to golf courses, there’s talk of whether these “modified holes” still count toward scores for your handicap. According to this article on Golf.com, yes—a hole that’s been modified to change the depth of the cup is treated the same as a regular hole, at least for the time being.
On that note, are these the kinds of things we’ll start seeing on courses? Only time will tell!

Finally, while we don’t have to worry about some of these in Maui (Dead snakes? Burrowing rodents? Cactus? Oranges?), here are 7 of the most obscure rules in golf you’ve likely never heard of:
