Golf Events

Playing with the Pros; Fierce Rivalries Meets Friendly Competition

The goals of the Kohanaiki golf program are two-fold: first, to offer members once-in-a-lifetime chances to play with (and against) internationally renowned pros on 18 holes of pure challenge, and second, to treat everyone to an experience that’s just pure, unabashed fun. No matter the skill level, our members are always encouraged to participate in our golf tournaments and events, where new friendships are forged and solidified, and the memories we make become stories we tell year-after-year.

Commitment to Sustainability

Audobon Society

While we are always in pursuit of birdies and eagles, Kohanaiki remains committed to protecting the many species of native and migratory birds and wildlife who also call Kohanaiki home. As stewards of the land, we have been awarded the Audubon International Silver Signature status for our efforts to maintain a balance of environmental protection, preserve natural resources, and protect wildlife. Our solar powered desalination and reverse-osmosis system that distributes 1 million gallons of water per day throughout the course, meaning that our greens remain pristine and playable, and more importantly, sustainable.
