Hole Description

Par5: Begin your journey at Ko Olina with a straightaway par 5. The fairway is guarded by OB on the left side and sand bunkers on the right. Keep it in the fairway with the right club selection and avoid all trouble areas. Green is slightly elevated bordered by a sand bunker to the right.
Par 4: Lengthy hole with OB and sand bunkers on the left side and water feature to the right. From the tee, prevailing winds cause the ball to drift to the water hazard. Two-tiered, elevated green makes for a difficult approach shot.
Par 4: Short par 4, but prevailing winds make this hole quite deceiving. Fairways are guarded by OB and sand bunkers to the left and a lateral water hazard to the right. For long hitters, the landing area is very generous. The hour-shaped green will test your putting skills.
Par 3: Down wind and down hill slope make for a difficult shot. A high shot will create a “floater” type shot, which would put you in the pot bunker to the left. The two-tiered green can be difficult to read.
Par 5: Another scorable par 5. The fairway is guarded by OB and a sand bunker on the left side and a pond on the right. Hit it down the center and debate whether to go for the green on two. Or simply lay up just short of the sand bunkers to the right. Another hour-shaped green to test your skills.
Par 4: Tee shot is affected by a severe swale just in front of the teeing ground. Landing area is very generous, but not ideal for a “slice”. The right side of the fairway is lined with trees and a sand bunker. The elevated green is guarded by a sand bunker on the left.
Par 4: This hole runs alongside hole #6, therefore, it calls for another tee shot over a severe swale. The left side of the fairway plays a bit shorter, but hitting your drive too long and left will result in an uphill sand bunker shot. Prevailing winds help with your approach shot to a slightly elevated green.
Par 3: One of our signature par 3 holes. With a water feature along the left side of the hole, club selection is key to success. With a sloping green, par is a great score.
Par 4: Guarded by sand bunkers left and right, keep your tee shot in the center. Should you get a little careless off the tee, your approach shot becomes quite lengthy. Two-tiered green makes for a tough “two-putt”.
