Ko Olina Golf Club
When the Ko Olina Golf Club opened in 1990 it marked the first of several new courses in Leeward Oahu that decade and is currently one of only four resort courses on Oahu. This western Oahu golf course has hosted both Senior PGA Tour and LPGA Tour events.
This mounded layout's prevailing trade winds are its strongest characteristic and biggest challenge. After playing into a quartering wind from the left at the par-5 No. 1, golfers are met with a short par-4 at the second hole that plays into the trade wind with water on the right, the first of six holes where designer Ted Robinson's trademark water features come into play. A real stunner appears at No 8, a par-3 with cascading rock garden waterfall left of a multi-tiered green.
Ko Olina's finishing hole is an engaging par-4. The tee shot is critical to determine the length and position in which to approach the slightly elevated green protected at front and left by a large pond and waterfall. Hidden at the dogleg is still another water feature that comes in from the right. Getting on the green is only half the battle on this tiered putting surface.
