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.

The Club House has a restaurant that is beautifully situated, has a delightful ambiance, and you can enjoy good food. The caesar salad is nicely presented and they can readily supply any number of anchovies. The fish menu is more than acceptable and while not extensive, you will likely be satisfied. If you enjoy mellow music performed by some of... More

Lovely golf course with several holes right on the ocean. Variety of tees allow players of all abilities to enjoy the beauty. Nicely conditioned with better than average greens. The Amici Vista grill is much better than most golf course restaurants and has a lovely view of Keahou Bay. My informal survey indicates they serve the best Mai Tai in... More

Visited twice for dinner during our stay at the nearby Sheraton.on both occasions the food was excellent, and reasonavly priced for a a restaurant of this quality. On the first occasion, the waitress who looked after us was courteous , friendly, helpful and most efficient. However, on our second visit (on Feb 12), our waiter virtually ignored us favour, firstly... More

This is a very nice course. My golf game is deteriorating so I should not have brought my clubs but used the free rentals at the Sheraton. Their patio has a great view of the Ocean and serve great drinks. Looks like a nice place for dinner too?

This was the first time we played this course and were very happy with everything. We were a bit skeptical because of some of the other reviews, but the course was in great shape. We took advantage of the online tee time specials and played the course for $120. We played a few courses up in the Kohala coast area... More

The course is a fair test for golfers of all levels. It runs along the ocean so the winds play into every shot. The fairways are wide and the greens are huge so it is very player friendly. The conditions are good. If you like golf just go and enjoy yourself . It's long enough for everyone.

This was the course I was looking forward to the most of my whole trip. From the first to the eighteenth, I enjoyed every hole. Even though I injured my left arm on the second hole, I kept playing as I was not going to miss out on this course. The ocean holes have the best views, but the whole... More
