Nanea Golf Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 2003

The private Nanea Golf Club is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in the Hawaiian Islands. The excellent open parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes.

Set on the barren lava strewn slopes of Mount Hualalai, the course incorporates the characteristics inherent in any fine links course, not least firm turf and stiff sea breezes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game.

Limited access: this private course is generally playable only by members and their invited guests.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

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.
