Top-5 Reasons To PLAY koolau Golf Club:
- GOLFHAWAIICARD holders may play Koolau Golf Club for as little as $64.50 per-day
- One of Hawaii’s most challenging and exhilarating layouts
- Koolau Golf Club boasts eye-popping vistas in every direction
- Hawaii’s most challenging finishing hole with two forced carries
- One of the closest courses to Waikiki lodging options (about 20-25 minutes)
Koolau Golf Club is literally carved out of dense, jungle-like foothills in the creases of mountains where views of cascading waterfalls, imposing peaks, and rainbows dancing between valleys and ridges distract every golfer. The 18-hole Dick Nugent and Jack Tuthill design, 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.
Nestled below Oahu’s dramatic Ko’olau Mountain Range on the windward side of Oahu, Koolau Golf Course enjoys a convenient location due to it being one of the three closest courses to Oahu’s lodging hotspot — Waikiki. Located just off the history-rich Pali Highway and directly below the famous Pali Lookout, Koolau is a “can’t miss” golf adventure, which in virtually every way goes to the aesthetic heart of why we all enjoy the experience as much as the game itself.
Koolau Golf Club 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.
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 Golf Course is—by anyone’s standards—a compelling golf experience. [READ MORE]
