Est. 1966

The Ocean and Mountain courses at Kona Country Club are two well-rated and pleasantly testing layouts. The usually higher-rated Ocean course is a tree-lined and open parkland course that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.
