I had an incredible time play this Hawaii golf course. Keep in my mind it was my 4th course in as many days so I was EXHAUSTED. Who knew golf could be so difficult. But it was another perfect Hawaii with some great friends. The course was in perfect shape. With plenty of places to go out of bounds… (I did that often) the course is also crazy long which was fun and tiring. It was fun to play through the community and also along the beach. This place is known for their comfort stations and they did not disappoint. They had just every single possible fun snack or food you could hope for!
“Home to the only Rees Jones golf course in Hawai’i, Kohanaiki’s 18-hole course is both beautiful and, at times, wonderfully distracting. The 7,329-yard, par-72 course winds across more than 100 acres with six ocean-front holes set along 1½ miles of shoreline. It’s challenging, yet infinitely fun.
Crafted around 14 historic Ahu (ancient rock shrines), the emerald-green SeaDwarf paspalum turf intertwines with flows of black volcanic rock, historic structures and 200 protected anchialine ponds, home to native and migratory birds and wildlife. Kohanaiki has taken painstaking measures throughout to honor the history and natural beauty of the area.
To maintain the course in pristine condition while keeping operating costs to a minimum, Kohanaiki invested in a solar powered desalination and reverse-osmosis system that provides the 1 million gallons of water per day needed to water the entire course.”
