Mauna Lani Course

 

 Golf Courses: Mauna Kea ~ Hapuna ~ <MAUNA LANI>

Mauna Lani South

The Mauna Lani Resort South Course, renown as the former home to the annual Senior Skins Game from 1990 - 2000, snakes through the stark, rugged a'a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow.

A playful fictitious Menehune by the name of Moke has been known to frequent the lava areas surrounding this course. If you should strike your ball towards the lava, don’t scream your normal superlatives, instead, yell “HELP MOKE”! If he favors you, your ball just might miraculously bounce back onto the fairway.

Besides great Hawaii golf, the challenging golf course offers the player a panorama of mountain and ocean views. The South Course is home to No. 15, one of the most photographed over-the-water golf course holes in the world.

With Hawaii golf vacation packages and Hawaii golf tournaments, Mauna Lani Resort offers the perfect choice for your Hawaii golf vacation. If you're thinking of a wedding this beach front resort on the Kohala coast features a 343-room luxury hotel, the perfect location for your Hawaii wedding. Before the big day the groomsmen can take in 18 holes at this award winning Hawaii golf resort while the bridal party is pampered at the tropical resort spa.

Mauna Lani North

The North Course, although a Hawaii resort course, is fast becoming known as the Mauna Lani Resort's tournament golf course.

A bit more difficult than the South Course, this course displays a much different face of Hawaii Golf. Built on a lava bed much older than the Kaniku flow (on which the South Course lies), it is characterized by rolling terrain punctuated by Kiawe (mesquite) forests. Trees often come into play on this Hawaii golf course. Number 17, a par three tucked into a natural lava amphitheater, is another one of Mauna Lani Resort's signature holes and a favorite "I was here" photo spot. A 230-acre protected archaeological district lies on the northern boundary of the golf course. Herds of feral goats frequent the entire golf course, moving from hole to hole throughout the day.
