Whether you prefer to play in a cool, misty climate reminiscent of Scotland or so close to the Pacific that you have to wipe salt spray off your clubs, Hawai‘i Island has all you need for a great day at the links.

Sunny South Kohala is home to striking GOLF RESORTS. Mauna Kea Beach Hotel boasts the championship Arnold Palmer 18-hole HĀPUNA GOLF COURSE, which was ranked by Golf Digest as one of the best golf resorts in North America; as well as the MAUNA KEA GOLF COURSE, an award-winning 18-hole championship course created by Robert Trent Jones Sr.

A few miles south at Mauna Lani Bay at Mauna Lani are dual-championship FRANCIS H. I‘I BROWN NORTH AND SOUTH COURSES , which are carved out of black lava rock into a visually stunning layout.

Kona offers HUALĀLAI GOLF CLUB at the Four Seasons Resort: an 18-hole, Jack Nicklaus signature. The course, however, is normally reserved for resort guests or invited patrons.

The Big Island also boasts several upland golf courses: MAKANI GOLF CLUB near Waimea is a favorite among visitors; MĀKĀLEI GOLF CLUB, which lies on the slopes of Hualālai; and Robert Trent Jones Jr.- designed WAIKOLOA VILLAGE GOLF CLUB.
