Kona Country Club has been designed by William Bell and sits along the Pacific Ocean with stunning mountain views. This beautiful golf course has breathtaking Kona coastline views, trails of ancient lava flow and is enriched with Hawaiian culture and wild life. This Big Island golf course can be enjoyed by both beginners and advanced golfers. Built in 1966, this William Bell designed course maintains its charm by incorporating natural settings along the Pacific Ocean. Be ready to take a picture on our signature holes #3 and #12. Enjoy seeing the grand splash on hole #13 where you will see the blow hole known as "puka" in Hawaiian. Keep a lookout for Humpback whales during November through March. Home of LPGA Takefuji Classic in 2000 and 2001, this 18 hole championship course offers wide, lush fairways, Bermuda grass greens and numerous sand bunkers.

The course is a fair test for golfers of all levels. It runs along the ocean so the winds play into every shot. The fairways are wide and the greens are huge so it is very player friendly. The conditions are good. If you like golf just go and enjoy yourself . It's long enough for everyone.

This was the course I was looking forward to the most of my whole trip. From the first to the eighteenth, I enjoyed every hole. Even though I injured my left arm on the second hole, I kept playing as I was not going to miss out on this course. The ocean holes have the best views, but the whole... More

Staff were very attentive and helpful. Sad that more locals do not support this course. Easy to get a tee time. Good course, with some good views and challenge.

I do not golf, but live close to the Kona Country Club. They have done many major changes on ocean side of this golf course over the last few years and the Kona Country Club Maintenance Staff has done an excellent job in maintaining the beauty of this course. Their Maintenance Staff are always mowing and trimming to keep the... More

What a treat, the golf course was great with 4 holes along the ocean. The staff was amazing from the time we arrived till we left. The cold papaya infused water towel at the end was a nice touch. Pro shop is well stocked and the rentals were new Taylor Made clubs , carts are new. I would definitely recommend... More

its a great course, a little on the easy side but fun. I played at a bad time of year just after a remodel and Aeration so it was a little messy. Thats the only reason i rated it average. I would love to play it again when its back at 100%

Kona Country Club is now open....at least half of it has re-opened after being closed for 3 years. (The Ocean course is now open...there are no plans at present to reopen the Mountain course, which many people actually preferred. It was considered the better course.) You'd think they would have had time to get the course right, but it's still... More
