Kona Country Club boasts two championship courses, the Ocean Course and the Mountain Course. Unlike the other golf course that snakes along the ocean, the Mountain Course heads inland, taking advantage of the beautiful landscape of lush, emerald hills contrasted with ancient lava flows.

Kona Country Club boasts two championship courses, the Ocean Course and the Mountain Course. Unlike the other golf course that snakes along the ocean, the Mountain Course heads inland, taking advantage of the beautiful landscape of lush, emerald hills contrasted with ancient lava flows. The inviting layout has well manicured greens and elevated tees. Three lakes and numerous strategically placed bunkers come into play throughout. On the front nine, golfers will be faced with varying elevation changes that peaks with spectacular ocean views that stretch from Keauhou to Kona. The stretch of holes from the 13th to the 17th is arguably the best five consecutive holes in Hawaii. A part of that group is the most scenic hole, the par-3 14th. This hole is the highest point on the golf course and features a waterfall surrounded by colorful bougainvillea and black lava rock.

    It has been way too long since I've played there. Have played it several times, by one hole in particular gave me fits. A par five over a huge hill. I've been ill for a number of years now, and at one point I was in a wheel chair. Doing well now, but earlier I was able to hit a golf ball farther than anyone I ever heard of. I drove a 524 yard par 5 twice. And I won a nice skin in Texas I almost got a 2 on a par 5. It was a tap in Eagle. Anyway, I asked one of the pros, I'm not sure if it was Jim or Greg. Jim Shaw I think. How do you play that hole. He said go to the left because no one can make it over the hill. I went at the flag, then the others followed. And after that I see a ball rolling from right to left, and then it turned towards us and rolled all the way back to the ladies tee. I'm sure it took 3-5 minutes to roll as far as it did. After that, just aim left. Then go right. Absolutely a beautiful course, and one of my favorites.

    I've played the course many times.When putting toward the ocean it will be fast.It might look uphill but it isnt,trust me.When putting toward the mountain putt will be slow.
    Beautiful views,greens usually fast.

    It's been 4 years since I played there. I loved it. It was going bankrupt and had no clubhouse to speak of but the couse was great. A lot of elevation changes and tons of wildlife roaming around.
