Possibly the best course I've ever been to. Fantastic views of the Ocean from every hole. If you love a challenge look no further. Staff is first rate and the Views restaurant is a wonderful place to enjoy lunch and cocktails.

As close to perfection as one can get. Without any doubt one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. Spectacular and challenging. Given the huge investments to have realized this unique course (Jack Nicklaus design), not cheap to play, but worth every penny....More

Great course. Not too difficult (123 rating from white tees) but seems more challenging because of the contour of the land. The views are OUTSTANDING. You can see the ocean from every hole. Service was terrific too. Highly recommend. The views are significantly better than...More

Absolutely wonderful! Built on lava outcroppings, the course features three holes on cliffs, which use the Pacific Ocean as a water hazard. The five-tee concept challenges the best golfers – tee shots over natural gorges and ravines must be precise.

By no means am I a great golfer; I enjoy the grounds as much as I do the game. Manele grounds are impeccable and the views are priceless.More

Made the trek specifically to play this golf course and we were not disappointed. The back nine was unbelievable, especially their signature 12th hole. Course is available now only to resort guests (unless you are a "local") which means that there is very limited play....More

Is there a shuttle that takes you to and from the hotel to the clubhouse? And what is the rate for club rentals? Trying to avoid renting a car on Lanai or lugging my own clubs for just one round.
