Course Details

Makalei Golf Club is a breathtakingly beautiful golf course on the western slops of Hualalai Mountain on Hawaii Island. Designed by Dick Nugent & Associates, the course reflects the raw, natural beauty of Hawaii Island, incorporating native forests, mountain slopes, and unique volcanic features such as lava tubes and cinder cones. It is the finest in Kona golf.

Makalei offers challenging play for golfers of all levels, with multiple tees that can extend the course from 5,242 yards to a championship length of 7,091 yards. Bent grass, unusual in Hawaii, is featured on all Makalei's tees and greens, and high-grade sand from Idaho is used in the bunkers.

Makalei is home to more than just a spectacular golf course, it is a virtual sanctuary to some of the worlds most beautiful animals. Wild pheasants, turkeys, peacocks and other animals make their home around the golf course.
