Koolau Golf Club is nestled on the windward side of Oahu’s dramatic Ko’olau Mountains below the Pali Highway. The convenient location is also rewarding as it is one of the three closest courses to Oahu’s lodging center—Waikiki. Located just off the history-rich Pali Highway and directly below the famous Pali Lookout, Koolau is a “can’t miss” golf adventure. In every way, the Koolau adventure goes to the aesthetic heart of why we all enjoy the experience as much as the game itself.
Koolau is literally carved out of dense, jungle-like foothills in the creases of the mountains. Views of cascading waterfalls, imposing peaks and rainbows dancing between valleys and ridges distract every golfer. The layout, which features several forced carries and Paspalum greens re-turfed in 2007/2008, can play exceedingly tough if concentration and proper course management is not employed. Take this bit of advice: Play this track from the Resort tees (6,406 yds., 71.0/132), or forward, and see if you can lose less than two balls. Koolau is—by anyone’s standards—a compelling golf experience.
Koolau Golf Course is certainly not for the ultra high-handicapper, but most golfers should play from the three most forward tees (Red-Silver-White). Single-digit men can try the Blues the second time around, but avoid the Gold tips. In the Aloha State, where so many courses have eye-popping views and exotic locations, none is more compelling than Koolau. [READ MORE]
