Wailea Emerald GC. Designed to be fun for practically every player, the 6,825-yard Wailea Emerald Course was one reason Golf for Women Magazine first granted the Wailea Golf Club a Top Fairways Award for the country’s most women-friendly golf club, an honor that the Wailea Golf Club received seven times. Other golf authorities agreed: LINKS Magazine and Golf Digest have also lauded Wailea’s Emerald as a great course for women. Its women-friendly reputation aside, however, the Emerald Course is simply a delightful course for all players.

Mauna Kea GC. The award-winning, 18-hole championship Mauna Kea golf course has set the standard for Hawaii golf for generations. Created by Robert Trent Jones Sr. on what was once a barren black lava field, today’s lush fairways tumble across seaside cliffs with unfolding ocean and coastal views.

Winding its way through mango and guava groves to dramatic seaside cliffs, MSN Travel called the Ocean Course one of the world’s twelve most beautiful courses. It’s little wonder that the list of accolades for this Jack Nicklaus Signature track is its string of holes that hug the Pacific.
