Turtle Bay Resort Palmer
18 holes, par 72, 7218 yards. All prices per person and include golf, cart rental and range balls.
Located on Oahu's scenic North Shore, perhaps better known for surfing than golfing, the Turtle Bay resort offers two championship courses that have played host to the Champions Tour, LPGA, and Golf Channel’s The Big Break.
The Palmer Course at Turtle Bay Golf is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay. The course features two distinctly different experiences. The front nine is nearly devoid of trees and shrubs. It features sand, water, wind, and rolling terrain. The back nine plays through a forest of ironwood pines and offers a very different feel. The 17th hole is unquestionably the signature hole on the course with no less than nine craggy bunkers surrounding the landing area and extending all the way up to the green. The signature 17th green sits on a plateau only 100 feet from the ocean.
The Palmer Course, designed by Arnold Palmer, is the more challenging offerings of the Resort and plays to a yardage of just over 7200 yards from the back tees and has a slope of 141 from those same tees. The course has a distinct links feel to it, is heavily bunkered, and given its location is heavily influenced by nature’s elements.
