Waikoloa sparks the spirit of adventure in every golfer. It lives along the rugged lava coast, windswept and wave-washed by the powerful Pacific, where whispering palms share no secrets.
The spirit of adventure filled the sails of Polynesian voyaging canoes centuries ago and first drew them to Hawai’i Island. It called warriors to battle, and inspired explorers and travelers along the “Kings’ Trail,” some carving their symbols in stone petroglyphs along the way. It beckoned Captain James Cook, on the far side of the world, where he and his Scottish father may have played a round of golf before Cook set sail on his historic journey to the Sandwich Isles.
Golfers sense the spirit of adventure in the Beach Course, a study in color and contrast designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., with wide emerald greens marked by unforgiving black lava. The Beach Course has the breathtaking look and alluring risk/reward that is classic Hawaii golf. And, carved into rugged lava fields from ancient flows, the Kings’ Course has been called a surreal golf experience. Designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish to demand respect and deliver reward, the Kings’ Course is truly a strategic player’s course, challenging mind, body and spirit.
Two of the Big Island’s best golf courses challenge champions and drive club players to excel and exceed expectations, where the shimmering Pacific Ocean meets the stark black lava.
Spectacular, historic and compelling, the Beach and Kings’ Course stand ready, to capture the spirit of adventure that lured explorers here from other lands, and entices new discoveries every day.
Let that spirit capture you............for a sneak peek click here.
