The Waikoloa Kings’ Golf Course at the Waikoloa Beach Resort is a fine example of contemporary links-style course design on lava. The team of Tom Wesikopf & Jay Morrish fashioned this layout to be both user-friendly and challenging by creating several risk/reward scenarios on the mostly level terrain. Always a terrific course for a match, the Kings’ hybrid Bermuda turf applications are a considerable contrast to those on its sibling — the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course. Suffice to say, sophisticated bunker strategies and multiple tee placements enhance the charming idiosyncrasies of six greens tucked behind or abutting long lakes and the occasional huge lava formation in the middle of a few fairways and bunkers. Weiskopf’s signature holes are always his short par-4s, which are admirably presented at the 5th and 13th Holes.
The Kings’ and Beach Courses share a dynamic clubhouse, which has a restaurant — Mai Grill — that serves breakfast (7:30-10:45 daily), lunch (11:00-3:00 daily) and dinner (6:00-9:00 Thu-Sat). For those looking to freshen up for dinner or the flight home, showers are found in the restrooms below the pro shop. The on-resort Tropics Ale House (located at the old Beach Course clubhouse) is a great choice for lunch or dinner and delivers a 20% discount to those presenting a GOLFHAWAIICARD. The pizza, salads and 24 craft beers on tap are an absolute delight.
