Mauna Kea Golf Course

The multi-award winning Mauna Kea Golf Course has led the way in standards of course beauty and design since 1964, solidifying its place in Hawaii's history as one of the most scenic and favored golf courses. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the 18-hole championship course presents dramatic changes in elevation, large undulating greens and 120 well-placed bunkers. The spectacular signature hole is the famous third, where surging inlet water races to meet the rocky shoreline, affording one of the most dramatic and breathtaking views of any course today.

Without changing the essential character of his father's design, Rees Jones Inc. re-planted the championship course with highly efficient ultra-dwarf Tifeagle Bermudagrass on the greens and Tifway 419 hybrid Bermudagrass on the tees, fairways and roughs. State-of-the-art irrigation systems, liners in the bunkers and advance drainage improvements keep the golf course in top shape and even save on environmental resources.

Mauna Kea includes world-class practice facilities to elevate your game while enjoying epic vistas of the Kohala Coast's rolling waves, panoramic views of the sea and land, snow-capped Mauna Kea Volcano, rugged lava beds and the sparkling blue Pacific. Golfers can also gather together at the new Number 3 Restaurant after golf to relax in a casual atmosphere. You will definitely want to order some pupus and a nice cold one from the tap, or maybe try the signature Mauna Kea cocktail, to toast to having played a round at such an amazingly beautiful course.
