Makalei Golf Club

About 2,000-feet directly above Kona’s Keohole International Airport (KOA) sits one of Hawaii’s most unique layouts — Makalei Golf Club. From its lofty perch that climbs as high as 2,800-feet above the sea, golfers revel in a natural setting of unsurpassed tranquility among hundreds of colorful game birds, fascinating lava tubes & cinder cones, as well as water, woods, flowering shrubbery and dynamic elevation changes.

Makalei Golf Course is a Dick Nugent-designed gem and is now flowing to its original challenging design, with the 1st, 9th, 10th and 18th Hole emanating and terminating in the vicinity of the driving range and practice facility’s spectacular vistas. With this adjustment, Makalei takes its rightful place as one of Hawaii’s truly great layouts. It is also the only course in Hawaii with genuine, no-grain Bentgrass greens, which are quite diminutive and usually in remarkably fine condition. Failing to visit this sensational independent (non-resort affiliated) course should be a punishable offense. So, play it at least twice and have a memorable golf experience while keeping your camera handy. Makalei Golf Club also happens to be one of the best golf values in the Aloha State.
