The Big Island Country Club is one of the best examples of Hawaii's treasure trove of independent (non-resort affiliated), daily-fee golf courses, making many top-10 lists in this category since it opened in 1997.
The course has become a staple for regular visitors who stay at the famous resorts along the Kohala Coast's Upcountry Golf Trail. The Perry Dye design is situated at an elevation of over 2,000 feet, offering both a cooler climate and panoramic views of the nearly 14,000-foot Mauna Kea volcano above and the sweeping coastline below.Water comes into play at nine holes, with this no more apparent than at 17, where Dye pays homage to his famous father Pete. There, golfers will find an island par-3 reminiscent of No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass.
This Big Island golf course's trademarks include moderate trade winds, glorious views, consistent Bentgrass putting surfaces, country club-style landing areas, and good maintenance.
