Unbelievable Views

By no means am I a great golfer; I enjoy the grounds as much as I do the game. Manele grounds are impeccable and the views are priceless.

This golf course not only provides beautiful views of the ocean, but is in immaculate condition with very few players. We lost balls and found balls so think we were even at the end of the round. Staff is wonderfully professional and you get a beautiful bag tag engraved with your name :) If you desire to play the best... More

Made the trek specifically to play this golf course and we were not disappointed. The back nine was unbelievable, especially their signature 12th hole. Course is available now only to resort guests (unless you are a "local") which means that there is very limited play. We teed off at 8:30 and never encountered any other golfers except in passing. The... More

A wonderful golfing experience from tees to fairways to greens. The views are breathtaking. I recommend you take your time and have an incredible lunch break between nines. The staff are so helpful.

Great views. Good all around and playable course. Staff very friendly. Jack Nicolas design course. Winds can make the course a lot tougher. Try the stand up golf carts if your up for a challenge.

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

Aloha ToriAndTom C, I am pleased to hear that you and your wife enjoyed our scenic golf course. Lunch at Views is always a MUST after a round on the course. We do offer activities for non-golfers such as our Ocean Nine Tour which allows everyone the opportunity to explore the course without having to play a round. We also... 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.
