Just a decade ago, golfers had to fly to neighboring islands to play the best golf courses. Fortunately, much has changed since then. Today some of Hawaii's finest new courses are on Oahu. The island's fabulous natural surroundings combined with some creative course designs have provided the perfect venue for major PGA, Champions and LPGA tournaments.
With more than 5 million visitors every year, courses remain busy the year round, so be sure to plan ahead and schedule your tee times early.
Ko Olina Golf Club
Ko Olina Golf Club, recognized as one of Oahu's premier golf courses, offers a challenging 18-hole championship course with exceptional water features, multi-tiered greens, and no parallel fairways.
Kapolei Golf Course
This course is one of the finest creations of famed course designer Ted Robinson. The 18-hole championship golf course features five strategically- placed lakes, 72 bunkers, undulating fairways and elevated greens, providing a challenge to both men and women of varying skills.
Koolau Golf Club
Nestled at the foot of historic Pali Lookout, this club offers breathtaking views of the majestic 2,000-foot high cliffs of the Koolau Range and Pacific Ocean. Koolau's natural setting provided master architect Dick Nugent the opportunity to create what is consistently rated as one of the world's most challenging golf courses. It encompasses more than 280 acres of magnificent tropical rain forest.
