Kihei’s Newest: Maui Nui Golf Club

Exciting Change

To the average person, it might not even cross their mind to pursue a golf course venture, but Peter Savio is not the average joe by any means. Amongst Savio’s notable projects include the Pagoda Hotel on Oahu, the recent acquisition of the Maui Beach Hotel, and a $25 million redevelopment of the Waiakea Villas complex in Hilo.

However like I just mentioned, his boldest and most ambitious project is his recent purchase of the Maui Nui Golf Club, formerly the Maui Elleair Golf Course which according to CBRE was listed at around $15 million. Savio acquired the golf course from Japanese corporation Daio Paper Corp.

There are many aspects to running a golf course that many might not even give a second thought to. Ensuring the entirety of the greens and fairways are always in tip top shape, managing and maintaing the carts, efficiently making use of water, and other things of that nature. Operating a golf course is a tough business with not much room for error. But with Savio leading the charge, the future looks bright.

The name change was inspired by one of Hawaii’s oldest and most famous legends; the new management wants the course to reflect the same magic and legendary status of the demigod Maui. The legend goes that Maui, armed with his special hook, fished up 4 islands which are known today as Lanai, Molokai, Kaho’olawe and Maui. They all comprise Maui County.


The Hokulani Golf Villas, encircled entirely by the Maui Nui Golf Club 

Sitting directly across from the Maui Nui clubhouse is the enchanting Hokulani Golf Villas. These residential condos set the new standard in South Maui for luxury and prestige. Perched on the fairways of the Maui Nui Golf Club, this community offers 152 home-style condominiums on 40 acres of Haleakala’s lower slopes. Because the community is set at an above average elevation in Kihei, every unit in the gated community boast spectacular views and some with breath taking views of the Pacific, perfect for enjoying the famous Maui sunsets.

Since new onwership is in place at the course, we are working on a special membership deal for Hokulani owners, but we do not have anything set in stone at the moment.
