As a large portion of the United States gets bombarded by snowstorms and subzero temperatures, Hawaii’s Kohala Coast remains a warm and sunny tropical paradise. There’s no better time than right now to book a well-deserved golf getaway to Mauna Kea Beach Hotel as there are several months left of winter in the contiguous United States. When you choose an elegant getaway with Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, you’ll always be minutes away from a potential tee time at two of the premier Hawaii golf courses: Mauna Kea and Hapuna. Kama’aina (a Hawaii resident) can save up to 30 percent on overnight accommodations here at one of the premier Hawaii beach hotels.
Mauna Kea Golf Course
Mauna Kea Golf Course made history in 1964 when it became the first golf course constructed on the Island of Hawaii. Incredibly, our on-site championship course remains one of the best Hawaii golf courses. Mauna Kea was designed by famous architect Robert Trent Jones Sr., who reportedly told philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller: “If you allow me to build a golf course here, this will be the most beautiful hole in the world.” Jones was, of course, talking about our famous third hole, which provides golfers with a genuinely breathtaking tee shot on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. This once barren black lava field was transformed into a lush landscape with undeniably beautiful ocean views, dramatic seaside cliffs, and pristine Tifeagle bermudagrass. After each unforgettable round of golf, sit down for a refreshing ale and grilled fish tacos at Number 3 Restaurant.
Hapuna Golf Course
Hop aboard a shuttle from Mauna Kea Beach Hotel to nearby Hapuna Golf Course (a 2.5-mile journey) for 18 more holes of world-class golf. Hapuna is an often overlooked destination because of Mauna Kea’s five-star reputation, but it’s easily one of the premier Island of Hawaii golf courses. This links-style course features spectacular Kohala Coast views and dramatic elevation changes, but the unique desert terrain is a huge selling point for visiting golfers. Hapuna was designed by hall-of-fame golfer Arnold Palmer and brilliant developer Ed Seay. There are very few Island of Hawaii golf courses that offer such a challenging design, but the panoramic Pacific Ocean views will help keep you on your game.
Hawaii Five-Star Hotels
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is one of the only Hawaii golf resorts on this side of the island. We have several tower rooms that have splendid views of both the on-site golf course and the Pacific Ocean. When you’re not putting for birdie, you can sunbathe at picturesque Kauna’oa Bay and enjoy the laid-back luxury of your guest room.
