The Kiele Course at Hōkūala is a hidden gem among the top quality golf courses of Hawaii. The front nine is set amongst tropical forestry and the back nine hugs the coastline and boasts the longest continuous stretch of ocean-front holes in the state. When the Pacific Ocean doesn’t come into play, there are over forty acres of fresh water lagoons to consider. The Nicklaus design accentuates the natural surrounding beauty while providing an amazing experience for golfers of all skill levels. The 5th hole is a daunting 219 yard par 3, and was dubbed by Jack Nicklaus as, “one of the best holes anywhere.”
Tough course for hackers, but one you have to play for the beautiful views. Almost got rained out, but glad we kept going. Ending holes are breathtaking. Don't miss this one.
Friendliness left a little to be desired and the airplane traffic is a little distracting, but this is a marvelous layout! Wide open fairways, with challenges around the green. A couple of world class par 3s!
Very nice course with some breath taking views. Course was in very good condition. Pace of play was superb. Very nice pro shop and the staff is TOP NOTCH. Trust me folks, you won't be disappointed playing this track.
