Kona Country Club has been designed by William Bell and sits along the Pacific Ocean with stunning mountain views. This beautiful golf course has breathtaking Kona coastline views, trails of ancient lava flow and is enriched with Hawaiian culture and wild life. This Big Island golf course can be enjoyed by both beginners and advanced golfers. Built in 1966, this William Bell designed course maintains its charm by incorporating natural settings along the Pacific Ocean. Be ready to take a picture on our signature holes #3 and #12. Enjoy seeing the grand splash on hole #13 where you will see the blow hole known as "puka" in Hawaiian. Keep a lookout for Humpback whales during November through March. Home of LPGA Takefuji Classic in 2000 and 2001, this 18 hole championship course offers wide, lush fairways, Bermuda grass greens and numerous sand bunkers.

A fabulous day on the course

Staff were very attentive and helpful. Sad that more locals do not support this course. Easy to get a tee time. Good course, with some good views and challenge.

I do not golf, but live close to the Kona Country Club. They have done many major changes on ocean side of this golf course over the last few years and the Kona Country Club Maintenance Staff has done an excellent job in maintaining the beauty of this course. Their Maintenance Staff are always mowing and trimming to keep the... More

What a treat, the golf course was great with 4 holes along the ocean. The staff was amazing from the time we arrived till we left. The cold papaya infused water towel at the end was a nice touch. Pro shop is well stocked and the rentals were new Taylor Made clubs , carts are new. I would definitely recommend... More

its a great course, a little on the easy side but fun. I played at a bad time of year just after a remodel and Aeration so it was a little messy. Thats the only reason i rated it average. I would love to play it again when its back at 100%

Kona Country Club is now open....at least half of it has re-opened after being closed for 3 years. (The Ocean course is now open...there are no plans at present to reopen the Mountain course, which many people actually preferred. It was considered the better course.) You'd think they would have had time to get the course right, but it's still... More

Playing golf in shirtsleeves in early March is every Midwesterners dream, so why not? Golf was challenging and picturesque to say the least. Nice course, nice facilities and professional employees. We played the ocean 9 and I enjoyed the challenge and my wife, who's only played two years enjoyed it too. I'm glad we played.

The Kona Country Club ocean view course has plenty of gorgeous views for a fair price. It's not too easy, but not too difficult either. They also have the mountain course, but I've never played it. It's been closed for renovations for more than a year now, but I hope it's back up and running for my next visit to... More

Love playing golf here on either course. Great views and a decent challenging course without the resort prices. Friendly staff all the time

We played the Mountain course, back nine first, thank goodness, otherwise we would have likely quit after nine. The front nine is extreme golf, with fairways on the side slope with no hope of keeping the ball from following the fall line! It was not a pleasant experience. Staff at the course were definitely not interested in serving you or... More

Kona Country Club Quality Poor - Fair We have stayed at the Kona Coast Resort 4 different times: 2007-2008-2011 & 2013. My wife and I have played both courses, Mountain & Ocean at Kona Country Club every time we've stayed at the resort. We are celebrating our 13th anniversary this week. We've planned this vacation for 15 months. The Ocean... More
