This nine -hole loop features generous landing areas from the tee boxes and large greens surrounded by low -lipped bunkers to reward the social golfer. Hole #6 (originally #7) is the highlight of this loop, a par five that plays on an emerald ribbon of fairway between black lava fields down to the ocean, with its putting surfaced ringed by swaying palm trees and backed by Pacific waves, creating one of the most beautiful and memorable holes in Hawai‘i. Par 35 - 3,285 Yards.
This nine -hole loop winds its way through the heart of the resort, taking its name from the bodies of water that come into play on five of the nine holes. This classic resort - style layout, part of the original Beach Course built back in 1980, will not beat you up with length, but does require strategic shots to avoid lava and water trouble. The lava beds in this area of the course created some natural elevation changes that were neatly incorporated into the design. Par 35 - 3,285 Yards.
This nine-hole loop provides a completely different playing experience. A Scottish links-style layout, the Kings’ Nine features wide fairways and wider views of Mauna Kea in the background. Pot bunkers add a degree of strategy to shot-making. The signature hole on the loop is #5, a risk/reward par four of only 277 yards. Better players might consider going for the green, but trouble lurks left and short in the form of a fairway-long sand bunker and massive lava boulders. A truly memorable hole. Par 36 - 3,522 Yards
Original Kings Course (only Nine now open)
Waikoloa Kings Golf Course is truly a player’s course. It has length and lingering trade winds that can pick up in the late afternoon. This alone would be enough to challenge a good player, yet the course also is known for its unique lava landscape which can definitely be a considerable distraction.
Designed by the team of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish the 7074 yard Kings Course meanders over and around the ancient black lava flow, and its wide, undulating fairways are framed by palm trees and vibrant flowers of Hawaii. The beautiful Kings Course plays inland towards the ancient mountain of Mauna Kea, ever present in the distance.
From the 5th hole green, perched up a few feet above the fairway golfers get a magnificent view of the surrounding lava fields, which stretch as far as the eye can see. This is camera time no matter what your score. Majestic fairways interspersed throughout ancient lava fields – it has even been compared to playing golf on the moon!
