Hualalai Resort - Hualālai Golf Course

USA, Hawaii
4.5 (2)
Designer: Jack Nicklaus
Course Opened: 1996

From comes this description of the Jack Nicklaus-designed Hualalai Golf Course.

Hualalai has long hosted an annual Champions Tour stop. In 2015, it was the Mitsubishi Electric Championship. Laid out entirely on ancient jagged lava fields, the course moves up and across slopes for much of the front nine, returns to the clubhouse at 14 and then descends toward the sea, with the often-photographed par-3 17th right on the coast. Like the Greg Norman-designed 16th at TPC San Antonio, the Nicklaus-designed par-3 12th at Hualalai features a bunker smack in the center of the green. Obviously, that feature is a favorite of tour pro designers.
