Mauna Lani is located on the sunny Kohala Coast, Island of Hawaii. Our two championship courses, Mauna Lani South and Mauna Lani North offer a challenging experience to novice and professional golfers alike. Mauna Lani was home to the Senior Skins Golf Game and hosted the prestigious Hawaii State Open. These courses are masterpieces of design, each strikingly different, yet equally formidable.


Mauna Lani South Course captivates golf enthusiasts as it snakes through the stark, rugged a’a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow, offering a panorama of mountain and ocean views alongside a challenging golf experience on the Kohala Coast. The South Course is also home to No. 15, one of the most photographed over-the-ocean golf course holes in the world.

Mauna Lani’s North Course represents the quintessential Hawaii golf experience. Built on a lava bed, this championship golf course on the Big Island is characterized by rolling terrain punctuated by Kiawe (mesquite) forests. Number 17, a par three tucked into a natural lava amphitheater, is one of Mauna Lani Resort’s signature holes and a favorite “I was here” photo spot.

A 230-acre protected archaeological district lies on the northern boundary of the golf course. Herds of feral goats frequent the entire golf course, moving from hole to hole throughout the day. The North Course has fast become one of the most popular tournament venues on the Big Island of Hawaii.
