Big Island Country Club, Kailua-Kona

4.2
#2 of 12 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.

  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • The course is absolutely Breath taking!! The very friendly bag guy and check in ranger was quite comical and had “jokes”! Greens were very well kept and would love to go back tomorrow, but gotta head back to Michigan!
  • wowzers scoobs
  • Favorite golf on the Big Island! No. 17 & 18 are awesome closing holes!
