Where2Golf says: 

Mauna Lani Resort (South course): The Francis H. I'i Brown North and South courses at Mauna Lani Resort are two well-rated, pleasantly testing and immensely scenic layouts. Both courses include many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy ... with lava flow and ocean views a plenty.

Mauna Lani's captivating South course snakes through the stark, rugged a'a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow, offering a panorama of mountain and ocean views alongside a challenging golf experience. The course is home to the renowned par-3 15th, one of the most photographed over-the-water golf holes in the Hawaiian Islands.
