If you enjoy golf and are staying on Lanai, you should play this course. Beautifully-maintained and the views are absolutely unbeatable (especially on the back 9). You will enjoy the round, but play early to beat the heat and then grab lunch at Views. My wife joined me for the cart ride (greens fees are high for a non-golfer) and... More

Stay here, play here. Does not get better. You won't see another person on the course. Eat at Views after your round. Delightful.

Manele Bay Golf course was a great place to play but we went there this year to play only to find out the value of this round of golf is now nowhere a value. You have to stay on the island even to be able to play there. So for us we had to pass, and this was a great... More

I am a golfer who has played for 54 years and this is my favorite and yes that includes Pebble Beach. Played probably over 30 rounds logging in 36 a day when I visit which is typically twice a year. The course is impeccable and the greens are smooth and true. The staff knows it is expensive and now you... More

Hot on the course but lovely. View from every hole. Great condition and nice pro shop. The lunch at the clubhouse is the best in the island.

Beautiful golf course, the best conditions I've seen in Hawaii and I've played on the best there is in Hawaii. Hualalai was my favorite until I played here...the views are amazing! The views make the experience better even after hitting a bad shot! Ha!

I only play golf a few times a year but overtime i go to hawaii i have to get a game in here, the views are amazing, and there is never a crowd, no pileups behind multiple foursomes, you can play as fast or a slow as you want within reason.

Course was in seriously the best shape I've seen any course in for years. The grass was carpet like and played nicely. Costly, but WORTH IT! Views were the best I've ever played next to and the course had good elevation change, yet playable even for a hack.

Consistent punching and verticutting of the fairways and approaches have made for great playing conditions. This very playable Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is one of a kind with... More

Husband played twice during our visit, I rode with him. Beautiful course designed by Jack Nicklaus so lots of sand traps. Views are tough to beat, course is very well maintained. Staff very helpful/friendly.

This is definitely an island of relaxation. Don't go looking for excitement, however, this course is fabulous and a must see if you are on Lanai.
