Mauna Kea was the first course to tackle the black lava rock prevalent on the Kona side of Hawaii’s Big Island and the result was an expensive project on a spectacular setting. The greens roll as good as any course on the island and the conditioning throughout the layout is quite commendable which simply adds to the enjoyment factor of the round. The complimentary yardage book on the 1st tee will help you navigate the highly bunkered course and will reveal the ocean as the only water hazard to contend with on the layout. If you have trouble hitting the ball high or from sand bunkers then Mauna Kea is going to quickly expose your weaknesses, otherwise you should have a blast.
