Located at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, two golf challenges - the North Course and the South Course - are both 18-holes at par 72, and known for the beautiful black lava and putting greens.

This course has the best service in the island. Beautiful course with friendly unpretentious staff that’s genuinely warm and welcoming. We’ve golfed here a few times already and will definitely be back!

This course is beautiful! Expensive, but beautiful. Played both courses back to back in 2 days, preferred the North Course. Carts are not as fancy as some of the other resort courses in the Kona and Kohala areas. Staff was great, very helpful. Played in...More

I managed to play four different golf courses on the Big Island, and this was truly my favorite as I played the South Course here. It was in the best condition, the holes being cut out of the lava flows makes for special scenery, the...More

We played the south course which has a couple of holes along the ocean. The 15th hole in particular is amazing. The course was not crowded on the day we played and we got around quickly. The course is certainly playable for a double digit...More

A truly unique golf experience given the landscape. Played the South Course, with a 7.30am, tee time, in early July and thoroughly enjoyed the round after utilizing the driving range (grass tees and free balls) before we teed off. Course is in immaculate condition, with...More
