Kohanaiki Golf Course
The Rees Jones-designed 18-hole golf course is inspired by the breathtaking beauty seen at every turn. Winding over 100 acres, its design seamlessly blends the sparkling blue ocean, sand, surf and lava that surround it. A par 72 that can play up to 7,329 yards, the course has been registered in the Audubon International Silver Signature Program, a testament to its careful design to protect wildlife, conserve water and preserve native vegetation.
“This is a course of never-ending pleasure, and people want to play it again right after they’ve played one round,” says Rees. “We were able to incorporate the holes in a way that uncovered the native art and the natural features, which were elements that weren’t available for people to observe or interact with. So essentially, we created golf holes that are nature paths.” Rees continues, “You have a mixture of feels as you move through the course. There’s holes seven and eight with the lake, the valley holes, the holes with a rocky outcrop backdrop, and of course the ocean holes. What I’m most proud of is how natural it all looks. The course has an unbelievably natural flow to it.”
The par-72 can play up to 7,329 yards and is ideal for every caliber player.
