Aloha from Makalei Golf Club...and experience long remembered! Makalei is truly one of the most unique golf courses in the world. The Kona golf course encompasses all of the serenity and challenge that the Island of Hawaii has to offer.
Situated in the Kona region on the west side of Hawaii Island, known for its cool climates and world famous coffee farms, Makalei boasts an elevation range from 1,800 to 2,850 feet. This Kona golf layout is a cool, scenic, lush forest alternative to the island’s coastal golf course experiences. The temperate climate, lush surrounding forests, and elevation offer a great challenge for golfers of all skill levels. Several distinctive features on the course include bent grass greens, lava tubes, cinder cones and a stone wall dating back more than a century.
Regardless of skill level, Kona golf enthusiasts will appreciate the indigenous flora and fauna of the area, which includes many native species of plants as well as numerous peacocks, pheasants, wild turkeys, and other wildlife. While the golf course and native plants and animals are enough for most people to enjoy the experience, Makalei also vaunts a spectacular view of Hawaii Island as well as one of Mount Haleakalâ on the island of Maui.
Makalei is a short drive straight up the mountain from the Kona International Airport, and is easily accessible from all of the major resorts and destinations on the Island of Hawaii. Makalei offers player friendly prices, which make it one of the most affordable golf courses on the island.
