As the only resort on Oahu’s North Shore, that is considered one of the world’s most epic surf spots and golf resorts on the Island, Turtle Bay Resort immerses guests in the natural tranquility and authentic charm of an undiscovered Hawaii from years’ past. The resort offers spectacular ocean views from all 482 guest accommodations that include 42 newly reimagined beach cottages, ocean villas and vista level premium guest rooms and suites. The resort also features seven restaurants and bars, two pools, an oceanfront spa and fitness center, a surf school and dynamic ocean and land adventures range from eco-kayaking with sea turtles and surf lessons. The centerpiece of the resort is two stunning courses that offer some of the best resort golf on the island: The Arnold Palmer Course and George Fazio Course.
Consistently regarded as the best course on Oahu (and among the very best on all the islands), the Arnold Palmer Course is an absolute must-play. Set along the fabled North Shore, the course is the only course on the island designated among Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.” An Arnold Palmer Signature Course, the Palmer Course has played host to the worlds best including host to the best players in the world, including the Champions Tour, LPGA Tour, the Golf Channel’s Big Break; people who know how to evaluate quality golf consistently choose the Palmer Course when looking for a venue on the islands.
The George Fazio Course is the original course on property and is generally more forgiving than the Palmer Course. The design meanders among traditional Hawaiian Palms while skirting the North Shore coast on numerous occasions. The Fazio Course is an experience well worth having, and for those enjoying multiple days at the resort, a great complement to the Palmer experience. The fun to play Fazio Course has hosted the games greats including Arnold Palmer, Gay Player, Sam Snead, and Chi Chi Rodriguez in the first Champions Tour Skins Game.
