The Big Island's Kohala Coast is called the "Golf Capital of Hawaii" for many reasons--sunny golf weather year-round, the bright contrast of black lava and brilliant greens against the shimmering blue horizon, and a collection of championship golf courses by top designers. Mauna Kea Golf Course, created by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in the '60s, set the benchmark very high for Big Island golf. Today, the legend continues as Mr. Jones' son Rees presents a multi-million dollar restoration that raises the course to modern USGA standards of play.
Together with Hapuna Golf Course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay in 1994, Mauna Kea Resort Golf is a complete experience. 36 holes, many of them with ocean views, and dramatic topography that climbs from sea level to 600' offer an exciting golf challenge for the top player, and a rewarding Big Island golf experience for golfers of every level.
