Mauna Lani Resort (North course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1981

Mauna Lani Resort (North 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 ancient lava flows and ocean views a plenty.

Mauna Lani's North Course is built on a pahoehoe (basaltic rock) lava flow. The par-3 17th is the signature hole with elevated tees which form a natural amphitheatre, with the green at the bottom of a deep lava bowl.
