Mauna Kea Golf Course (18 Holes)

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Mauna Kea Golf Course remains the standard by which all other island courses are judged. This legendary masterpiece offers golfers the perfect challenge to match their level of play. 

Covering 230 acres of beautiful landscape, the 18-hole, 72-par championship course presents dramatic changes in elevation, large undulating greens, and 120 well-placed bunkers. There are incredible panoramic sweeps of sea and land, featuring snow-capped Mauna Kea, rugged lava beds, and the sparkling blue Pacific. One of the most spectacular features is the famous Third Hole – where surging inlet water races to meet the rocky shoreline, affording one of the most breathtaking views in golf today.
