Mauna Lani’s South Course is home to Hole #15, one of the most photographed over-
Fairways composed of Bermuda grass are lined by the natural rough along with pahoehoe and a'a lava rock. Lava rock must definitely be avoided as if you are lucky enough to have your ball bounce back to the fairway your ball will be damaged.
Signature holes on the South Course that play beside the ocean are the famous Hole #15 and Hole #7, another par 3, borders the ocean and during the winter months golfers can enjoy watching humpback whales migrating offshore. Most of the greens are flat, but hard to determine the speed as there are many subtle breaks as you roll your ball to the flag.
Championship Tees: Par 72, 6,938 Yards, Rated 72.8, Slope Rated 133
Mauna Lani North Course
Mauna Lani's North Course has fast become one of the most popular tournament venues on the Island. Rated as one of the best golf experiences on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Built on a lava bed, the North is characterized by rolling terrain punctuated by Kiawe forests. Number 17, is the North's signature hole, par 3, measuring 140 yards, and requires a tee shot from an elevated tee to a green that is framed by a natural lava amphitheatre, and a favorite "I was here" photo spot.
There are as many as five different tee positions on most of the holes to give golfers a wide range of options in meeting the challenging conditions. With the Groves of twisted kiawe trees along the fairway edges and a more pronounced topography make the holes seem quite a contrast from the south 18. Water hazards come into play, and several holes are contiguous with the ocean.

Waikoloa Beach Course

From the fairway the player is treated to the most stunning views of any course in the world. The green fairways sit on a lava peninsula surrounded by swaying coconut palms. With beautiful visuals as a carpet of emerald green, contrasting against the stunning blues of the Pacific Ocean crashing on the black lava sending spray cascading in the air.
The seventh is one of the most photographed holes in the entire Hawaiian Islands and a classic risk reward hole in every sense of the word. Hole # 17 is a wonderful par three over water surrounded by an amphitheater of black lava. Don’t forget your camera when playing this stunning course.

Designed by the team of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish the 7,074 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 you get a magnificent view of the surrounding lava fields, which stretch as far as the eye can see.
