The Kohala Coast is renowned for its lava-strewn terrain that leads down to sandy beaches lined with swaying palm trees. Waikoloa Golf Club takes full advantage of this distinguishing terrain.
Two distinct golf experiences await players here, the Beach and Kings’ courses. No matter your skill level, you’ll enjoy both of these strong and scenic layouts, designed by two of the biggest names in the golf design industry, Robert Trent Jones II and Tom Weiskopf. Crafted in the middle of ancient lava flows from nearby Mauna Loa, both designers used the rocky landscape creatively, with many fairways bordered by lava fields, and several greens surrounded with lava rock walls.
The courses are so unique and different from what players find at home, they often decide to book a second round once they’ve had a first taste. A tee time here is something you won’t soon forget!
Waikoloa Golf Beach Course
A favorite among players, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. the course winds its way through the resort with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean on its signature, par 5, 7th hole.
Waikoloa Golf Kings’ Course
A “player’s course” in the sense that low-handicappers can tee it up from 7,000-plus yards and have all the length and strategy they can handle; while mid and high-handicap players can select a tee that will provide the same excitment and challenge, but at a length that suites their game.
