Mauna Lani enjoys a storied golf history, and all 36 holes are a fitting tribute to Francis I‘i Brown. Known for its lava bed terrain dotted by kiawe trees, the North Course offers the quintessential Hawai‘i golf experience. The South Course, with its stark a‘a lava setting, presents a challenging layout with holes set before mountain and ocean views—including #15, one of the world’s most photographed over-the-ocean holes. More than anything, they are places of connection—where moms, dads, sisters, and brothers can grow closer with every drive, chip, and putt. Since opening in 1981, the Mauna Lani Courses have collected numerous “Best Courses You Can Play” awards from Golfweek, Golf Digest, and GOLF Magazine, and they were a 10-year host venue of the Senior Skins Game – hosting many of golf’s greats, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, and Gary Player.
Mauna Lani South Course snakes through the stark, rugged a’a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow. This challenging 18 hole course, offers the golfer a panorama of mountain and ocean views. It is also home to No. 15, one of the most photographed over-the-water golf course holes in the world. For 10 years, this was the host venue to the annual Senior Skins Game from 1990 – 2000.
