The Challenge at Manele – Island of Lanai Golf

High above the crashing surf of Hulopo’e Bay, The Challenge at Manele is an outstanding course that more than lives up to its name. Built on lava outcroppings, the course features three holes on cliffs, which use the Pacific Ocean as a water hazard. The five-tee concept challenges the best golfers – tee shots over natural gorges and ravines must be precise.

Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this dramatic, unspoiled natural terrain is a stunning backdrop, and every hole offers majestic ocean views. The winter months bring spectacular sightings of whales right from the fairways.

The golf course is open every day from 6:30 am to 4:30 pm.

The Experience at Koele – Island of Lanai Golf

Designed by golf legend Greg Norman and architect Ted Robinson, this championship course offers stunning views of mountains and lush greens, with the ocean in the distance. It offers dramatic contrast to The Challenge at Manele, with a cooler climate, wooded slopes, manicured bunkers and terraced water hazards.

The course begins on a plateau nearly 2,000 feet (610 metres) above sea level, with sweeping views of Maui and Moloka’i across the ocean channel. The signature hole, Number 17, plays from a 250-foot (76-metre) elevated tee to a fairway bordered by a lake on one side and dense foliage the other. The front nine moves dramatically through ravines wooded with pine, koa and eucalyptus trees, and seven lakes and flowing streams with cascading waterfalls dot the entire course. No other course offers a more incredible combination of highland terrain, inspired landscape architecture and range of play challenges. Playing a round here will ensure you bragging rights, no matter what your score.

The golf course is open Wednesday through Sunday from 6:30 am to 4:30 pm
