Turtle Bay Resort (Palmer course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1992

The Turtle Bay Resort is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, the highly-ranked Palmer course and the also well-rated and popular Fazio course.

The Palmer course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in the Hawaiian Islands. The layout meanders its way through a mix of woodland and natural wetlands, briefly arriving oceanside at the signature hole, the dauntingly bunkered par-4 17th. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.
