Mauna Kea Golf Course - Big Island

Top 100 Greatest Public Courses

Best Courses in Hawaii #5 - Golf Digest 2015-2016

  One of the more well-known courses, Mauna Kea is a quintessential test of golf on the Big Island’s Kohala Coast.  Ocean views from almost every hole, and a Southwest-facing coastline give golfers a spectacular evening light to finish an afternoon round.   It is a true resort style course, and it is meant to be enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels. 

  Mauna Kea is a leader on the Big Island in terms of environmental impact awareness.  Ownership and management have installed a cutting edge irrigation system, special liners in the bunkers and upgraded the course drainage to improve the overall condition of the course while saving precious natural resources.
