Hawaii is known for its lush landscape and tropical atmosphere but the Island is also rich in history and varying scenery. During your Big Island vacation, take a day to follow the Kohala Coast from Mauna Lani Point ending with a spectacular view at Pololu Overlook. You will observe the lava laden terrain disappear into undeveloped pastoral surrounding. And the formation in black sand of the beach below the cliffs at Pololu.

Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve
Centuries ago, indigenous Hawaiians etched carvings into the lava rock that was plentiful at the time. Thousands of petroglyphs, or kii pohaku, were believed to be records of births and mark other significant events in the lives of the local people. You’ll see petroglyph carvings of human forms, canoes, turtles and more.

Pokohola Heiau National Historic Site
Under advisement by his priest, King Kamehameha built and dedicated Puukohola Heiau to the war god Kukailimoku, to help in his efforts to unite the Hawaiian Islands. Heiau, meaning temple, are sacred places of worship for Native Hawaiians, and Puukohola Heiau was a site built in 1791 to fulfill a historic prophecy. The temple lava rocks were thought to have been passed hand-by-hand in a human chain all the way from Pololu Valley, more than 25 miles away. The Pokohola Heiau is believed to be one of the last sacred structures built in the Hawaiian Islands before western influence.

Hawi
Hawi, on the northern tip of the Kohala Coast was once the center for the sugar industry, now defunct. In the village you’ll find quaint art galleries, specialty shops and restaurants housed in historic plantation buildings. The boutiques sell hand-crafted jewelry, genuine Kona coffee and homemade brownies. Stop at the Bamboo Restaurant & Gallery for an authentic island style meal. There were once voted best restaurant on Hawaii Island.

Kamehameha Statue, Kapaau
A great warrior, diplomat and leader, King Kamehameha I united the Hawaiian Islands into one royal kingdom in 1810 after years of conflict. Kamehameha I was destined for greatness from birth. Hawaiian legend prophesized that a light in the sky with feathers like a bird would signal the birth of a great chief. Historians believe Kamehameha was born in 1758, the year Halley’s Comet passed over Hawaii. ). Kamehameha was trained as a warrior and his legendary strength was proven when he overturned the Naha Stone, which reportedly weighs between 2.5 and 3.5 tons. Legend had it that whoever had the strength to move the Naha Stone would rule the Hawaiian Islands. Kamehameha’s unification of Hawaii was significant not only because it was an incredible feat, but also because under separate rule, the Islands may have been torn apart by competing western interests.

Pololu Overlook
View the stunning luxuriant cliffs of Pololu Valley and the vivid northeastern coastline. The panoramic outlook includes outcroppings and the stretch of splendid black sand beaches. The experience will be well worth the drive and is unforgettable.

Hawaii Golf Courses in Paradise

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.

Stay in a Classy Hawaii Vacation Rental Near The Golf Course

If you love the sound of the ocean, the feel of crisp air, the smell of fresh cut grass, and a scorecard that you will always remember, come to Hawaii! We promise that you will remember Mauna Kea Golf Course (just up the road from our resort) not only for your low score, but for the raw beauty of the natural course. At the site of what would become the third hole, Robert Trent Jones (the designer of the course) famously implored: “Mr. Rockefeller, if you allow me to build a golf course here, this’ll be the most beautiful hole in the world.” Years later, the course has won multiple awards, including the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play, “and “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America.” Players of all ages and experience levels have played this challenging course. Of course, the difficulty partially lies with focus. It’s nearly impossible to keep your eye on the ball and not on the magnificence views. On the front nine, look out for the par-3 hole. Its cliff-side tee across the bay and several bunkers make it a challenge for several players. This section is still one of the most well-known holes across Hawaii. Mauna Kea Golf Course doesn’t only offer breath taking views, but a driving range, practice putting greens, locker room, shower facilities, full-service pro shop and “Number 3” Clubhouse restaurant. The pro shop was designed for state-of-the-art golf equipment, latest attire, logo gifts, and other golf items. After a long day of golfing don’t forget to stop by the “Number 3” restaurant to cool down with a cold beer or split a gourmet pizza; you might even do better on the back nine. So if you’re heading out to the big island don’t forget your golf clubs to enjoy a scorecard you’ll never forget.
