Koele Golf Course (formerly known as the Experience at Koele): GOLF COURSE CLOSED IN 2017, pending non-golf development.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Koele is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in the Hawaiian Islands. This tree-lined parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy.

The course's front-nine plays through ravines wooded with pine, koa and eucalyptus trees. Water features abound, with seven lakes, flowing streams, cascading waterfalls, and the 8th green surrounded by a lake. The first seven holes on the back-nine meander across high country at an altitude of 2,000 feet.

The 17th, the layout's signature hole, plays from a 250-foot elevated tee to a fairway bordered by a lake on its right side, and on the left, trees and dense shrubs. A must play if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
