Manele Golf Course

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1993

Manele Golf Course (formerly known as Challenge at Manele) is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in the Hawaiian Islands. The excellent tree-lined and open parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes.

The course roams over several hundred acres of natural lava outcroppings, weaving between Kiawe and wild Llima trees. Laid out on the side of a hill above the ocean, every hole provides stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Many tee shots require a canyon to be crossed before reaching the safety of the generally good-width fairways. At the signature par-3 12th hole, you tee-off from a cliff set above the ocean, taking dead aim at the green, located on another cliff.

Stay & Play at Manele: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
