There is no prettier course in the world. Each time that I have visited in January, the course has been in immaculate condition with very few golfers and outstanding and distracting views to whales breaching. Great layout and challenging, but fair , holes from most tee decks. Great spot for lunch and a photographers dream course.

Played golf at Manele, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and visited the hotel. Mind blowing experience from start to finish. First I'm in the industry and have seen some amazing properties but WOW what an experience. From start to finish we were treated like their special guests.

Absolutely wonderful! 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.

By no means am I a great golfer; I enjoy the grounds as much as I do the game. Manele grounds are impeccable and the views are priceless.

This golf course not only provides beautiful views of the ocean, but is in immaculate condition with very few players. We lost balls and found balls so think we were even at the end of the round. Staff is wonderfully professional and you get a beautiful bag tag engraved with your name :) If you desire to play the best... More

Made the trek specifically to play this golf course and we were not disappointed. The back nine was unbelievable, especially their signature 12th hole. Course is available now only to resort guests (unless you are a "local") which means that there is very limited play. We teed off at 8:30 and never encountered any other golfers except in passing. The... More

Great views. Good all around and playable course. Staff very friendly. Jack Nicolas design course. Winds can make the course a lot tougher. Try the stand up golf carts if your up for a challenge.
