Golf's Toughest Course!

Golf is a lot of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic.

Ko'olau Golf Club

The course is located 20 minutes from Waikiki.

Carved out of a magnificent tropical rain forest on the windward side of the 2,000-foot Ko'olau Ridge mountain range, Ko'olau encompasses three distinct climate zones and features winding ravines, extreme elevation changes, and breathtaking views of cascading waterfalls.

Situated on eastern Oahu, the rugged landscape of this tropical jungle course uses ravines as the target for holes and boasts lush vegetation and huge sand bunkers.

Considered the toughest course in the nation from the back tees with a slope rating of 162, Ko'olau's spectacular setting will inspire you from beginning to end.

Magnificent scenery in every direction

And We Played It Losing Balls Left And Right!

Average players lose about five balls per round!

Lush Tropical Setting And Dry For Today!

Greens And Blue Were Intense

The cart was necessary i this heat

Water Was Everywhere

Slopes On Every Hole
No shortage of water!  That's Sue in the lower right-hand corner!
