Find your sweet spot in Lanai without even taking a swing. On this modest island, you’ll find two golf courses of remarkable prestige. The Experience at Koele is an 18-hole championship course designed by legends Greg Norman and Ted Robinson. Situated in Lanai’s 600-metre highlands, Koele is relatively short at 5,670 metres, but the course winds through hills and over tropical ravines. Here, each hole is graced with incredible vistas, from mountain ravines to Pacific Ocean views of neighbouring Maui and Molokai across the channel. This dramatic course, surrounded by soaring pines and eucalyptus trees, is indeed a one-of-a-kind experience.
Along the southern coast, Jack Nicklaus created one of his most famous masterpieces, the Challenge at Manele golf course. With three holes built on the seaside cliffs above Hulopoe Bay, this target-style course roams across several hundred hectares of natural lava outcroppings, using plunging ravines, native kiawe and towering trees as natural hazards. Each hole has five tee locations, allowing golfers at all levels to enjoy one of Jack Nicklaus’ crowning achievements in golf design. Both tracks rank among the best resort courses in Hawaii and the world by leading publications and travel guides.
