The South Course
Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows is a Hawaii golf resort home to the championship Francis H. I'l Brown South Course, renown as the former home to the annual Senior Skins Game from 1990 - 2000. The resort is now home to the prestigious Hawaii State Open. This Big Island golf course captivates golf enthusiasts as it snakes through the stark, rugged a'a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow, offering a panorama of mountain and ocean views alongside a challenging golf experience. The South Course is also home to No. 15, one of the most photographed over-the-water golf course holes in the world.
The North Course
Mauna Lani's North Course represents the quintessential golf experience on the Big Island. Built on a lava bed, this championship golf course in Hawaii is characterized by rolling terrain punctuated by Kiawe (mesquite) forests. Number 17, a par three tucked into a natural lava amphitheater, is one of Mauna Lani Resort's signature holes and a favorite "I was here" photo spot. A 230-acre protected archaeological district lies on the northern boundary of the golf course. Herds of feral goats frequent the entire golf course, moving from hole to hole throughout the day. The North Course has fast become one of the most popular tournament venues on the Big Island of Hawaii.
