#2 of 13 in Golf in Island of Hawaii
Big Island Country Club is the perfect course for a Hawaii golf vacation. With five sets of tee boxes, the Par 72 course is challenging but enjoyable for novices through expert players. Designed by famed golf architect Perry Dye, the course features wide fairways and water in play on nine of the 18 holes. Situated on the lower slopes of Mauna Kea mountain, the course offers Hawaii visitor and resident golfers a cooler climate with refreshing air and sweeping vistas of mountains and the ocean.

  • We have golfed at nearly every place on the Big Island and this course is one of the best! Interesting layout from fairways to greens. A beautiful, relaxing, and challenging course. The course is a bi...  more »
  • Value for the green fee. Wide open and challenging. Some rough edges however overall a good experience. No club house, yet to be built. Ice cold beer and reasonable prices. It's worth the drive.  more »
  • Our party of four expected a little more for the $180 green fees and rental clubs. The rental clubs were very poor. The grips were worn and torn. They were rusted too. They would not give us a towel f...  more »

  • Really nice golf course. The last 2 holes are a real challenge. We play this course at least 10 times when we visit the Big Island..
  • Big Island Country 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 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.
  • This course has real potential yet has some glaring issues. Pros: Great layout, fantastic finishing holes 17/18, not crowded. Cons: Greens and tee boxes are not consistently in the best of shape, inconsistent green speeds, no clubhouse, ran out of food by 2pm (pack your own lunch), price (if paying full public price). If in better condition, I’d give this 4 stars. Would play again.
  • Beautiful course. Love the pro shop, very quaint. The grounds are very nice!
  • Great course! Pros: great layout, great staff (Eddie & Robin), price was good compared to the rest of the island, course was in good shape (not amazing) Cons: no club house, just a shack with merchandise and drinks; tee boxes were uneven and inconsistent; fairways could have some improvements Would go back again!
