Big Island Golf Package

The Big Island is the largest Hawaiian island. Built over five volcanoes, it is an island of contrasts. From the deserts of Ka'u to the rainforests of Hamakua, from the snow capped peak of Mauna Kea to the warm golden beaches of Kona, the island is still growing thanks to the world's most active volcano, Kilauea.

Visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and hike Kilauea, explore lava tubes, steam vents and sulphur banks, and marvel at the ancient petroglyphs. Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, has been spewing lava almost continuously since 1983. View the liquid fire of creation, flowing molten lava as it makes it's way over 20 miles downhill to the sea.

Mauna Kea, at over 13,000 feet above sea level, is the tallest volcano in Hawaii and, when measured from it's base on the ocean floor, is the world's tallest mountain. Visit the world class observatories on the peak of Mauna Kea but be prepared for thin air and possible snow. Flurries can happen even in summer. Mauna Loa, slightly shorter than Mauna Kea, spreads over half the island and is the world's largest volcano. The mountain's massive weight has created a depression in the ocean floor more than 5 miles deep!

Explore historic Hilo on the lush western coast. Waterfalls, orchids, lava caves, and tide pools abound on this tropical side of the Big Island. Drive to Ka Lae (South Point) to stand on the southernmost point of the United States. Watch the boats launch by being hoisted down over 400 foot cliffs to the sea. Hike a few miles over Ka Lae bluffs to the Green Sand Beach (yes, the sand really is green!).

Relax in the warmth of the Kona coast with it's beautiful beaches, world class golf courses, and spectacular resorts. Visit the black sand beach at the northern end of the road in Pololu, walk the Waikoloa Petroglyph fields, dive or snorkel for manta ray and sea turtles, indulge in fine dining. All the Big Island has to offer is waiting for you when you stay at our popular location on the island of Hawaii.

There are 20 magnificent courses on Hawaii’s Big Island. These courses are carved out of ancient lava flows, nestled among historical Hawaiian landmarks, and fronting some of the most beautiful coastline of the Pacific. The striking contrasts of lush green fairways, pure white bunkers, jet-black lava flows, and turquoise blue Pacific waters make for some of the most scenic holes anywhere.

The Big Island is a destination not to be missed and special experience unique in the world.

Mauna Lani Packages

Mauna Lani rests on an ancient ‘ili, or land section, known through the centuries as Kalahuipua’a. It was a place where Kings would come for recreation and elders would gather for worship. This was, and is, a special hallowed place. The ancient royal fishponds are preserved on the grounds to this day. And if you somehow sense the importance of this setting as you stroll by them, you have the understanding for what the Hawaiians call The Spirit of Place.

The resort is home to a variety of accommodation choices varied from luxury 5 star resort hotels to large town homes featuring golf views. The resort features several restaurants as well as shopping.

The two championship courses are unique and very different. The South is a seaside course with several stunning ocean front holes and The North is the tougher test inland with lava and sand traps to test the best golfers.

You may choose to play any of the courses listed as part of you package. Courses you select will determine the final cost for your package.


Mauna Kea Golf Club













The multi-award winning Golf Course at Mauna Kea has since 1964, led the way in standards of course beauty and design, solidifying its place in Hawaii's history as one of the most scenic and favored golf courses.

Created by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the 18-hole championship course presents dramatic changes in elevation, large undulating greens, and 120 well-placed bunkers.

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 the golf course in top shape and save on environmental resources.

Including world-class practice facilities, that features a driving range and putting green to elevate your game while enjoying epic views of the Kohala Coast's rolling waves. Golfers can also gather together at the new Number 3 Restaurant after golf to relax in a casual atmosphere, along with pupus and a cold one from the tap, or a signature Mauna Kea cocktail to toast a great round of golf.

With incredible panoramic views of sea and land, featuring snow-capped Mauna Kea, rugged lava beds, and the sparkling blue Pacific. The spectacular signature hole is the famous Third Hole - where surging inlet water races to meet the rocky shoreline, affording one of the most dramatic and breathtaking views in golf today.

Championship Tees: 18 Holes, Par 72, 7,370 Yards, Rated 77., Slope Rated 136


Mauna Lani South Course












Mauna Lani’s South Course is home to Hole #15, one of the most photographed over-the-water golf course holes in the world. Renowned as the former home to the annual Senior Skins Game from 1990 - 2000, the course snakes through the stark, rugged a'a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow. The challenging South Course offers the golfer a panorama of mountain and ocean views.

Fairways composed of Bermuda grass are lined by the natural rough along with pahoehoe and a'a lava rock. Lava rock must definitely be avoided as if you are lucky enough to have your ball bounce back to the fairway your ball will be damaged.

Signature holes on the South Course that play beside the ocean are the famous Hole #15 and Hole #7, another par 3, borders the ocean and during the winter months golfers can enjoy watching humpback whales migrating offshore. Most of the greens are flat, but hard to determine the speed as there are many subtle breaks as you roll your ball to the flag.

Championship Tees: Par 72, 6,938 Yards, Rated 72.8, Slope Rated 133


Mauna Lani North Course












Mauna Lani's North Course has fast become one of the most popular tournament venues on the Island. Rated as one of the best golf experiences on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Built on a lava bed, the North is characterized by rolling terrain punctuated by Kiawe forests.  Number 17, is the North's signature hole, par 3, measuring 140 yards, and requires a tee shot from an elevated tee to a green that is framed by a natural lava amphitheatre, and a favorite "I was here" photo spot.

A 230-acre protected archaeological district lies on the northern boundary of the golf course. Herds of feral goats frequent the entire golf course, moving from hole to hole throughout the day.  

There are as many as five different tee positions on most of the holes to give golfers a wide range of options in meeting the challenging conditions. With the Groves of twisted kiawe trees along the fairway edges and a more pronounced topography make the holes seem quite a contrast from the south 18. Water hazards come into play, and several holes are contiguous with the ocean.

Championship Tees: 18 Holes, Par 72, 6,913 Yards, Rated 73.2, Slope Rated 136


Waikoloa Beach Course

With beautiful visuals as a carpet of emerald green, contrasting against the stunning blues of the Pacific Ocean crashing on the black lava sending spray cascading in the air.

The seventh is one of the most photographed holes in the entire Hawaiian Islands and a classic risk reward hole in every sense of the word. Hole # 17 is a wonderful par three over water surrounded by an amphitheater of black lava. Don’t forget your camera when playing this stunning course.

Championship Tees: 18 Holes, Par 72, 6,577 Yards, Rated 71.6, Slope Rated 134


Waikoloa Kings Course












The Kings’ course is truly a player’s course. It’s got the length, the strategic punishment or rewards and the ever-present trade winds to protect par. Yet, it can challenge the good player to the max while still being eminently enjoyable for the occasional player from several different sets of tees.

Designed by the team of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish the 7,074 yard Kings’ course meanders over and around the ancient black lava flow and its wide, undulating fairways are framed by palm trees and vibrant flowers of Hawaii. The beautiful Kings' Course plays inland towards the ancient mountain of Mauna Kea, ever present in the distance.

From the 5th hole green, perched up a few feet above the fairway you get a magnificent view of the surrounding lava fields, which stretch as far as the eye can see. This is camera time no matter what your score. Majestic fairways interspersed throughout ancient lava fields – it’s been likened to playing golf on the moon!
