The Beach Course is a study in color and contrast, its wide swaths of emerald-green boldly marked by unforgiving black lava, splashed with unabashed tropical flowers and bordered by the beautiful blues of lakes and vast Pacific. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the Beach Course is poetry by the ocean, with the breathtaking look and tempting risk/reward that is classic Hawaii golf.
For an outstanding Big Island golf experience, the Beach Course truly has it all: an interesting mix of challenging holes with birdie opportunities, spectacular scenery and a layout strategic enough to challenge the pros, while gentle enough to allow even the casual player an enjoyable day on the course. For an unforgettable round of great Hawaii golf, the Beach Course is one of the best—and remember to bring your camera!
Beach Course Signature Hole:
The magnificent 7th is one of the most photographed holes in Big Island golf, one that demands even the most competitive golfer to pause and appreciate the sense of place. The 7th green sits on a lava peninsula, framed by a sweet curve of coconut palms, while waves crash on the rocks below to send sea spray billowing into the air. In whale season, you may spot the splash of humpback whales as they breech and slap the surface, or spinner dolphins playing just offshore.
