Best Golf Courses in Honolulu: Ko Olina Golf Club

Photo Credit: (

In a previous post, I wrote about another one of my favorite golf courses in Hawaii, Kapolei Golf Course. Ko Olina is just as nice of a course as Kapolei, if not nicer.

Ko Olina Golf Club is where the LPGA LOTTE Championship is normally held, so it has to always be well maintained. It is located right alongside Disney’s Aulani Hotel and The Four Seasons, so it is in a really good area. Ko Olina is kind of far away from downtown Honolulu, but it is still only a 30-40 minute drive away or so.

Ko Olina is also one of the most expensive courses on Oahu, so I would definitely not recommend playing it on a regular basis. The price for Hawaii residents is $85, or $65 if you play after 1 o’clock. This rate is even higher for non-Hawaii residents (it ranges anywhere from $150-225), so it is most likely a one-time experience for tourists.

Once again though, if you are a serious golfer and looking for one of the nicest courses to play on Oahu, Ko Olina is a great option. The fairways and greens are super well maintained, and there is a good mix of waterfalls, nature, and scenery. It is also not the most difficult course, so if you are a good golfer you can likely score pretty well on it.

Ko Olina Golf Club Recommendation Rating: 4

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
