"Mr. Rockefeller, if you allow me to build a golf course here, this'll be the most beautiful hole in the world." Robert Trent Jones, Sr., at the 3rd hole site.
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 our Hawaii golf course in top shape and save on environmental resources.
As for play, the number of bunkers has been increased to 99, overall yardages have expanded by about 200 yards from the tips, and multiple tees will challenge all levels of players.
Mauna Kea Golf Course ushers in a new age of golf with innovative new Golfboards, a fun way to carve through a round of golf in record time and surf the earth. Available for both golfers and non-golfers ages 16 and up. New in 2016 - all carts now come with GPS to offer golfers a little extra help when determining yardages and distances to the hole.
Our golf facilities were designed by architect John Hara Associates Inc. and help make your Mauna Kea golf experience even more memorable. The Pro Shop offers state-of-the-art golf equipment, the latest designer attire and accessories, logo gifts and golf items. You can also drop off your golf shoes for Buzzy to clean, sign up for lessons or relax and talk golf with our attentive staff.
And, golfers who seek a mid-round oasis will love the tasteful look and tasty cuisine of the new "Number 3" clubhouse restaurant-almost good enough to guarantee a lower score on the course's back nine. Stop by after golf to relax in casual atmosphere, along with pupus and a cold one from the tap, or a signature Mauna Kea cocktail to toast your hole-in-one.
