Kohanaiki is home to the only Rees Jones golf course in Hawai`i. The beauty of the course is truly stunning, and will stir even someone who avoids the sport to want to play. The scenery is both beautiful and, at times, wonderfully distracting as the 7,329-yard, par-72 course winds across more than 100 acres with six ocean-front holes set along 1½ miles of majestic shoreline. It’s challenging, yet infinitely fun.

“I hope players are distracted. It’s too incredible a place not to look at what’s around you.”

Rees Jones

Crafted around 14 historic Ahu (sacred rock shrines), the emerald-green SeaDwarf paspalum turf intertwines with flows of black volcanic rock, ancient structures and 200 protected anchialine ponds that were historically used by Hawaiians to raise fish and shrimp and are now home to native and migratory birds and wildlife. Our team has taken painstaking measures throughout the grounds to honor the history and natural beauty of the area.

Rees Jones’ masterful design is not only breathtaking, it’s registered with the Audubon International Silver Signature Program for its careful consideration to protect wildlife, conserve water, and preserve and rehabilitate the native vegetation.

To maintain the course in pristine condition while keeping operating costs to a minimum, we have invested in a solar powered desalination and reverse-osmosis system that provides the 1 million gallons of water per day needed to water the entire course.

“This is a course of never-ending pleasure, and people want to play it again right after they’ve played one round.”
