Modern improvements to Mauna Kea Golf Course by the original designer's son, Rees Jones, have kept the original character intact while opening up challenging, memorable play on the Big Island of Hawai'i to all player levels.
Grass: High-efficiency ultra-dwarf Tifeagle Bermuda Grass on the greens. Tifway 419 hybrid Bermuda Grass on the tees, fairways and roughs.
Environment: State-of-the-art irrigation, bunker liners and advanced drainage techniques.
Play: Bunkers increased to 99, overall yardages expanded by 200 yards from the tips, and multiple tees challenge all levels. On-board GPS in all golf carts helps determine yardages and distance to hole.
GolfBoards: Innovative Golfboards offer a fun way to carve through a round in record time. Golfers and accompanying non-golfers 16 years and up can surf the earth on these Laird Hamilton-designed boards.
Pro Shop: State-of-the-art golf equipment, designer attire and accessories, logo gifts and golf items. Drop off golf shoes for cleaning, sign up for lessons or simply relax and talk golf with our attentive staff.
Dining: On the course, our signature beverage cart serves a diverse menu including Spam musubi, chili and blended cocktails. Mid- or post-round, Number 3 restaurant is the perfect spot to celebrate your hole-in-one with a local brew on tap, island-style pupu (appetizer) or a leisurely lunch.
