Challenge yoruself to World Class Ocean Front Golf – Big Island Style


Hawaiian Experience

Play a great game in front of a stunning backdrop of Kohala’s mountain and ocean vistas. You’ll love the greens and fairways winding through old lava fields – offering uniquely Hawaiian landscapes, challenges, and terrain.

Golfing in Paradise

The Kohala Coast is home to some of the highest-ranking public golf courses in Hawaii – making this region a true golfer’s paradise! All of our legal vacation homes are within a 15-minute drive of these great golf courses, so you don’t have to go far for tee time.




Play a round on one of the Kohala Coast’s great golf courses, which include several of the highest-ranking golf courses in Hawaii!

With sunny skies 300 days a year, the weather is perfect for a round of golf, especially in the morning before the winds pick up. Because of the afternoon winds, many courses offer cheaper rates for afternoon tee times.

Mauna Lani Resort North & South Golf Courses – a.k.a. Francis H. I’i Brown Golf Courses:

The Mauna Lani Resort features two excellent 18-hole golf courses – North Course and South Course – that consistently rank among the top golf courses in the state. Both courses offer unique challenges and great views of the ocean and volcanoes! The Mauna Lani resort currently hosts the Annual Hawaii State Open, and in the past (1990-2000) the South course hosted the PGA Tour’s Senior Skins Game – featuring Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer, and other famous professional golfers!

These two golf courses wrap around the entire Mauna Lani resort area and are visible from several of our homes. Mauna Lani offers club and shoe rentals, as well as instructional sessions. Rates include shared golf cart.


Mauna Kea Golf Course:

This gorgeous ocean-side golf course is regarded by many to be the best on the Island of Hawaii! The oceanside hole number 3 is legendary – both for the challenge and for the seaside views! It consistently ranks as within the top 10 golf courses in Hawaii and often in the top 100 in America! Mauna Kea Resort is just 10-15 minutes north of our vacation homes in Mauna Lani. Shoes and clubs are available for rent. Rates include shared golf cart.


Hapuna Prince Golf Course:

This scenic and well-maintained course is another excellent option within 15 minutes of Mauna Lani Resort. On a clear day at Hole 14, you can see a panoramic view of the ocean, Maui, Kohala Mountain, Mauna Kea, and Hualalai. Clubs and shoes are available for rent. Mauna Kea and Hapuna are next-door neighbours and there are options to purchase packages if you want to play both courses.


Waikoloa Beach Resort – Waikoloa Beach Course & Kings’ Course:

Waikoloa Beach Resort features two popular scenic and challenging golf courses. As the names suggest, the Beach course is closer to the ocean and the Kings’ course is more challenging (with traps including an infamous lava boulder!). Waikoloa Beach Resort is 10 minutes south of Mauna Lani on the highway. They often offer specials and packages for families or for individuals wishing to play both courses. Clubs are available for rent, but not shoes.
