When Jack Nicklaus created the original layout, the land lent itself so well to his vision that he made but a single change to his stunning original layout. In 2011, The Golden Bear was again called upon to redesign a few things and update the look of the iconic, picture perfect ocean holes. The result was three beautiful new holes, speedy new TifEagle greens and a much needed bunker facelift and overall polishing of playing corridors.
“Hokuala boasts the longest continuous stretch of oceans holes in all of Hawaii, providing nearly a mile of unobstructed Pacific Ocean views with so much WOW FACTOR you may have a hard time concentrating on golf.”
In 2016, The Ocean Course at Hokuala completed an additional renovation of the all bunkers with sparkling white sand, which now frames the entire set of holes to be even more spectacular than before! Hokuala is a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course conveniently located just minutes from the Lihue Airport and Nawiliwili Harbor and is truly one of Kauai’s most memorable golf experiences.
