Owner description: Ko Olina Golf Club, one of Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Resort Courses in the U.S.” is a challenging 18-hole course built in 1990 by renowned golf course architect Ted Robinson. Typical of his designs, Ko Olina Golf Club features exceptional water features, multi-tiered greens, large landing areas, and a moderate length which makes it perfect for beginners and experts alike. The clubhouse design symbolizes all the aspirations of the resort. Approximately 35,000 square feet, the architecture is characterized by its tri-level design and Hawaiian pitched roofs. Broad overhangs and verandas give it an open atmosphere and provides golfers with spectacular views of the course and landscape. In addition to men’s and ladies’ locker rooms; each equipped with showers, steam rooms and Jacuzzis, the clubhouse includes a comprehensive golf shop, recently voted the top Resort Shop by the Retail Merchants of Hawaii.

Paid the tourist rate of $179.00 to play on a Friday afternoon. Arrived an hour early to warm up and hit a few balls. Was told by the starter that they moved up my tee time and that I had 10 minutes to get ready. Went to the range and was told that range balls were extra (say what?)....fortunately one... More

Demanding course with exceptional views, watch which way the grass is growing on the greens & your putts with go where you want them to. Afterwards you can sulk in Roy's Restaurant over a drink

Ko Olina GC is one of my favorite courses and I have enjoyed golfing with friends. The view from some holes are wonderful and it looked like dream golfing in Hawaii.

Overall it is a very nice course. Slow play but that is to be expected since they send out groups so closely together to maximize the income. The layout is fair but the condition of the course is only second to the Palmer course at Turtle Bay.

Play the course Michelle Wie calls home. Manicured fairways, true greens, picturesque holes . . a thoroughly satisfying experience. Play at least one hole from a Pro tee and challenge yourself against the world's best.

I had a private lesson with golf instructor (Marcus). He was great!!! He was very patient and had knowledge. He found my problem soon and gave me great advice. You should take a private lesson.

The worst resort golfing experience we have ever had, on 2 holes the ground crews literally drive directly at our 14 year old during a shot, continuously drove at us while we were on the tee box and the group in front was 30 minutes behind pace, on tee 3 the Marshall told us we were 4 minutes behind and...
