Hawaii is the quintessential vacation destination: year-round warm weather, white-sand beaches, and top-notch resort rental options. All this and more has made Hawaii a world-class resort spot, and a perfect place to relax with a professionally-mixed Arnold Palmer on one of Mauna Lani’s top-notch golf courses.
Divided between the North and the South Course, Mauna Lani’s scenic walk through the links combined with the unique pedigree of the courses make this island a one-of-a-kind golfer’s delight. Golf Magazine agrees, and has actually awarded the 6,993 yard, 72-par North Course a Gold Medal for its technically challenging, PGA-caliber holes and its breathtakingly unique scenery. In fact, the North Course’s 17th hole –a par 3 situated in a naturally-occurring lava-rock amphitheater– is one of the most sought-after photo-opportunities on the entire island. The scenery doesn’t end there, either. On the north border of the 18th hole, there is a 230-acre protected archeological district for more shots of the Island’s natural splendor.
The South Course is also heralded as a PGA-caliber set complete with its own brand of natural splendor. Winding through the path of the ancient Kaniku lava flow, the 7,029 yard, par 72 course also boasts priceless views of Hawaii’s dramatic surroundings. Similarly to the North Course, the South Course also has a highly-photogenic hole that places you on top of the Big Island and gives the opportunity for a complete panoramic view of all of Hawaii. So, even if your score at the 15th hole is less than stellar, the memories created and the photos taken will forever be a treasured token of your Hawaii Golf vacation.
And for the golfer who wants to experience Hawaii Island’s majestic views but has been out of practice for some time, professional golf instruction with a full array of putting, pitching, and driving tools are available. Putting greens, practice ranges, and a fully-stocked pro-shop are a few of the bonuses the golfers have at their fingertips. And for the kids, the Keiki course is designed specifically to accommodate the junior golfers and set them up for a lifetime of success on the links.
One of the most exotic and comprehensive golf adventures is available at one location. Offering golf specials, instructional discounts, and specials for the family. After the day of strokes, putts, and drives is over, Mauna Lani Point resorts will have a comfortable place for you to lay your head and eagerly look forward to another day on the island links.
