The golf course has been designed to perfectly fit into the natural environment and create a truly wonderful golf experience. The varied landscape and natural terrain was left as undisturbed as possible to create a unique and world class 18-hole golf course above the historic Kohala Coast.

The existing terrain is “natural rolling hills and lush vegetation” interspersed with areas of diverse tropical trees, overlooking the sea from a variety of elevations and permanent views of the five mountains.

The course layout is the result of a long term study of the terrains conditions and characteristics to preserve the natural beauty and ecological balance of the site. It was always here. We have just perfected nature.

The finishing holes at Makani Golf Club match the finest finishing holes in existence, headlined by Perry Dye's Island Green on #17 which may be more memorable than #17 at Sawgrass. Playing the finishing holes at Makani Golf Club should be on every golfer's "Bucket List."

If you played every golf course in the islands, or even the just every course on the Big Island, you would know there is no place like Big Island Country Club [Makani Golf Club]. The experience is priceless and the course is just a small part of that experience. It is truly a world class championship golf course that has a unique place in the market. Totally different, better golf weather, stunning ocean and mountain views. If you could live there, it would be golf paradise.

What people are saying

Big Island Country Club [Makani Golf Club] is a “Diamond in the Hills”! What an amazing course all around. The layout is awesome, the condition of the course was perfect and the staff is the best! The ranger who meet us when we got there, Malcolm, was more like a course Butler than a Ranger took phenomenal care of us during our entire time there . My wife and I felt better taken care of at Big Island [MGC] than any of the other 3 course we played on Hawaii. This course is a definitely on our our list to play next time we are on the Big Island.

Played your course the other week... it is looking wonderful especially with all the trees in bloom. You have done a wonderful job of restoring the place. My favorite course in Hawaii.

While the wind was howling at the resort courses down below, we played tranquil rounds on the challenging Dye-designed tract. My wife was captivated by the unique game birds residing along the fairways.
