While you are visiting the beautiful island of Hawaii (The Big Island), join us for some golf at Mauna Kea Golf Course.
The multi-award winning Golf Course at Mauna Kea has since 1964, led the way in standards of course beauty and design, solidifying its place in Hawaii's history as one of the most scenic and favored golf courses.
Created by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the 18-hole championship course presents dramatic changes in elevation, large undulating greens, and 120 well-placed bunkers.
Without changing the essential character of his father's design, Rees Jones Inc. re-planted the championship Course with highly efficient ultra-dwarf Tifeagle Bermudagrass on the greens and Tifway 419 hybrid Bermudagrass on the tees, fairways and roughs. State-of-the-art irrigation systems, liners in the bunkers, and advance drainage improvements keep the golf course in top shape and save on environmental resources.
Including world-class practice facilities, that features a driving range and putting green to elevate your game while enjoying epic views of the Kohala Coast's rolling waves. Golfers can also gather together at the new Number 3 Restaurant after golf to relax in a casual atmosphere, along with pupus and a cold one from the tap, or a signature Mauna Kea cocktail to toast a great round of golf.
With incredible panoramic views of sea and land, featuring snow-capped Mauna Kea, rugged lava beds, and the sparkling blue Pacific. The spectacular signature hole is the famous Third Hole - where surging inlet water races to meet the rocky shoreline, affording one of the most dramatic and breathtaking views in golf today.
