Mauna Lani Resort

Mauna Lani, meaning “mountain reaching heaven,” is a tropical resort oasis set upon the famed Kohala Coast on Hawai’i Island. The beautiful Mauna Lani property is located 23 miles north of the Kona International Airport and features the Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection and Mauna Lani’s Francis H. I’i Brown North and South Golf Courses. The courses are masterpieces of design and are stunning examples of what environmentally-sensitive golf course architecture can achieve, with numerous archeological sites, trails, fishponds and ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs preserved throughout the courses. In addition, guests of the Mauna Lani Resort & the Fairmont Orchid receive value rates when booking tee-times.

The South Course, a Homer Flint, Raymond Cain and Robin Nelson design, was built on the 16th century Kaniku lava flow snaking through stark, rugged a’a lava. A pair of par 3s – the 7th and 15th holes – are Mauna Lani South’s signature holes and are two of the most photographed golf holes in the world. The South Course was home to the Senior Skins Game from 1990 to 2000 and Golfweek magazine rates it as one of the “Best Courses to Play in Hawai’i.”

The North Course, also a Flint, Cain and Nelson design was built on a lava bed much older than the Kaniku flow. Overlaying the rugged brown pahoehoe lava flow, the North features rolling fairways and through kiawe forests. A 230-acre protected archeological district lies on the northern edge of the North Course, while feral goats roam the course, cropping the grass and providing a unique neutral hazard. The par-3 17th is the signature hole on this course as a series of elevated tees form a natural amphitheater with the green at the base of a lava bowl.
