Ko'olau Golf Club

Carved out of a magnificent tropical forest, Ko'olau Golf Club is one of the most inspiring golf experiences you will play anywhere in the world. Ko'olau is nestled below Oahu's historic and popular Pali Lookout, and offers breathtaking views of the majestic 2,000-foot-high cliffs of the Ko'olau Mountain Range, cascading waterfalls and calming views of the beautiful windward side of Oahu.

Ko'olau's natural setting provided master golf course architect Dick Nugent the opportunity to create a gem of a golf course that encompasses over 280 acres of spectacular terrain with a scenic 7310 yard, par-72 layout unlike any other in the world.

Considered by many the toughest golf course on the planet, Ko'olau was originally pegged with a slope of 162 from the back tees but later dropped to 152, just three points shy of the maximum value acknowledged in the slope rating system. Due to Ko'olau's alluring scenery and uniqueness it comes as no surprise that it is commonly found at the top of golf course lists created by trusted names in golf such as Golf Magazine and Golf Digest.
