Manele Golf Course, Lanai


Cliffside ocean carries. Sweeping vistas at every turn. Precise course conditioning.

All this came together to create a treasured gift to Hawaii golf on Christmas Day 1993, when designer Jack Nicklaus unveiled The Challenge at Manele. This Lanai golf course is more of an open, oceanside course than its upcountry sibling, the mountain-forested Experience at Koele. While perhaps more forgiving, Manele presents several severe elements of target golf, and the smart golfer must remain sharp and slice-free.

The prevailing trade winds dictate the course’s hole routing which features short par-4s and near-brutish par-5s that artfully zig and zag, combining for nine superb doglegs. Fortunately, each hole offers five different tee boxes to increase playability.
