MANELE GOLF COURSE
Designed by Jack Nicklaus in 1993.

HIGHLIGHTS BY DA DAME SHOW HOST DAVE WARD

This golf course is in my top five of all time (and I mean anywhere!). There are so many unique and challenging holes, and the views are flat-out unbelievable! One such hole is No. 17, a par 4, at 444 yards…. Big dogleg right with a 200-plus-yard-carry
over the ocean; the more of the dogleg you want to cut off, the more of the ocean you need to carry. Safest bet is to putt your ball down the cart path to the other side (otherwise you will be standing on this tee box all day long…or until you run out of balls!).

OVERVIEW

For scratch golfers, the challenge of the Manele Golf Course comes into play when the forced carries over the ocean on the 12th and 17th holes make your knuckles white. If those holes don’t get you, the killer views will. Despite its length, the roll is more than ample given the many elevation changes, and how the design makes use of winds that are gusty and often stronger as the day warms up.

TEE-TO-GREEN

Because the holes here don’t run parallel like on more crowded venues, fairway targets seem to get smaller as visually it seems like the bail-out zones are no mas. Jack just gives you a lot of ocean, kiawe, and lava to hunt in for your ball when you go astray. In truth, most of the fairways are wide and manageable targets. Roughs are cut short and allow for recovery. Two out of three sharp doglegs actually play to a draw.

EDITOR’S NOTES

The Manele Golf Course is an epic experience that should be on every golfer’s bucket list. No other venue in Hawaii puts you in such secluded seaside golfing paradise. The facilities are unrivaled, the course conditioning and amenities are superb, the staff are fantastic, and the Jack Nicklaus design is out of this world. Where else can you tee off over two different oceanfront cliffs? Nowhere. Manele’s greens are big targets with bunkers that allow for plenty of scoring opportunities and ample room for an occasional misfire. The topography is gorgeous, with ocean views galore. You can go and come back in a day and enjoy a Hawaiian golf adventure unlike any other anywhere.
