Carved out of a magnificent tropical forest, Ko'olau Golf Club is one of the most inspiring golf experiences you will play anywhere in the world. Ko'olau is nestled below Oahu's historic and popular Pali Lookout. The course offers breathtaking views of the majestic 2,000-foot-high cliffs of the Ko'olau Mountain Range, cascading waterfalls and commanding views of the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful windward side of Oahu.

Ko'olau's natural setting provided master golf course architect Dick Nugent the opportunity to create a gem of a golf course that encompasses over 280 acres of spectacular terrain with a scenic 7,310-yard, par-72 layout unlike any other in the world. 

Considered by many the toughest golf course on the planet, Ko'olau was originally pegged with a slope of 162 from the back tees but later dropped to 152 which is just three points shy of the maximum value acknowledged in the slope rating system.

Ko'olau features some of the most extraordinary scenery in the world.Ko'olau can commonly be found in the top golf course lists created by Golf Magazine and other trusted names in golf.

The course has so many signature holes! The par 4 18th could be the hardest finishing hole in Hawaii. We also recommend going to the Black Tee's on hole 15 and hitting a ball from the top.

The course will not aerate their greens in the next 6 weeks.
