Overview

Kona Country Club has been designed by William Bell and sits along the Pacific Ocean with stunning mountain views. This beautiful golf course has breathtaking Kona coastline views, trails of ancient lava flow and is enriched with Hawaiian culture and wild life. This Big Island golf course can be enjoyed by both beginners and advanced golfers. Built in 1966, this William Bell designed course maintains its charm by incorporating natural settings along the Pacific Ocean. Be ready to take a picture on our signature holes #3 and #12. Enjoy seeing the grand splash on hole #13 where you will see the blow hole known as "puka" in Hawaiian. Keep a lookout for Humpback whales during November through March. Home of LPGA Takefuji Classic in 2000 and 2001, this 18 hole championship course offers wide, lush fairways, Bermuda grass greens and numerous sand bunkers.

Back nine took almost 2 1/2 hours to play. No ranger to be found. Had an eightsome playing in front of us. Course was in decent shape but at least make an effort to speed up slow play.

Played this course a couple days ago. It is very well maintained and not too tough. Views of the ocean from the clubhouse and course are beautiful. Do see the "Blowhole" especially when there is high surf.

This is a great golf course. We have played the beach course three times and it is spectacular. The course is manicured and the views of the ocean and mountain are incredible.

Girls went fishing....boys went golfing (go figure). Reservations at Kona Country Club made months in advance. People delivered as promised. Course was in excellent shape and the views were spectacular. Highly recommend.

So pretty, interesting course, great condition. Can't say enough, just plain enjoy this course. Weather is always good down in Keauhou although sometimes a little warm. You definitely have to play this course.
