Ko Olina Golf Club, one of Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Resort Courses in the U.S.” is a challenging 18-hole course built in 1990 by renowned golf course architect Ted Robinson. Typical of his designs, Ko Olina Golf Club features exceptional water features, multi-tiered greens, large landing areas, and a moderate length which makes it perfect for beginners and experts alike. The clubhouse design symbolizes all the aspirations of the resort. Approximately 35,000 square feet, the architecture is characterized by its tri-level design and Hawaiian pitched roofs. Broad overhangs and verandas give it an open atmosphere and provides golfers with spectacular views of the course and landscape. In addition to men’s and ladies’ locker rooms; each equipped with showers, steam rooms and Jacuzzis, the clubhouse includes a comprehensive golf shop, recently voted the top Resort Shop by the Retail Merchants of Hawaii.

We played the front nine one afternoon and the back on the next afternoon. It wasn't nearly as hot as I expected. Staff was friendly, free water cup and cold mint towel when you finish. The rental clubs are current models, the carts are new with full GPS functionality and the course isn't too difficult. The greens are multi-tiered and... More

The golf course was in good condition and only a short shuttle ride from the hotel. Prompt tee times and good service.

KoOlina Golf Course is a very nice golf course. Nice conditions, smooth greens. Layout is fair, yet challenging. Depending on the tee times, rounds could go very quickly (3h30m) or it could be painfully slow (Almost 4h45m). I played here many times. The staff that cleans your clubs and transports me to the parking lot are very nice. I played... More

A beautiful course with plenty of water and well placed bunkers. Great facilities and the staff are terrific. Good deals for junior golfers and our kids were totally welcomed.

I had really high hopes for this course. Especially for being a Lotte LPGA championship course and on the "bucket list" for my golf buddy. TOTALLY overrated. It was NOT relaxing in one bit from start to finish, perhaps that can be attributed to the start of the Twilight players. If you are going to play this course, I definitely... More

We arrived by shuttle from Waikiki and hired clubs to play. The cost for two was around $450. Despite the high cost we were keen to try out the highly recommended course. The cost of the game certainly didn't match the customer service you might expect. The starters were less then helpful giving us no instructions what so ever. The... More

For the cost of the round, type of service you receive and the fact that the LPGA tour is here next week led me to have a certain level of expectations. What I found was the following: - Pretty course that is very well manicured but there aren't any signature holes. Nothing is overly picturesque here. - Course is challenging... More

Although we played in advance of the LPGA event, the course was in great shape. The holes are challenging across the board, although not all of them (especially the Par 5's) are are impressive. Playing from the tips, it's quite playable. As with any resort course, the main hazard are players who don't understand that four practice swings and fifteen... More

I golfed Ko Olina on March 27, 2016 with a 10 am tee time (two weeks before the LPGA's Lotte Open). The Good: 1. The course was in very good shape, with well manicured fairways and very fast and true greens . 2. The pace of play was good for a Sunday (4 hours and 20 minutes for the round... More
