The breathtaking Jack Nicklaus Signature golf design is ranked #18, a remarkable jump up the list from last year, when it was #36. Manele also is one of only two Hawaii courses in the Top 20 of Golfweek’s annual ranking of the 200 Best Resort Courses in the US. Kapalua’s Plantation Course on Maui is #13.
One of the elite venues in the game – yet still very much untouched and uncrowded – the breathtaking Manele layout is built on lava outcroppings and features three holes along rugged oceanside cliffs, offering heavenly views of the Pacific on all 18 holes. Its signature hole is No. 12, a par 3 where the tee sits 150 feet (46 metres) above the crashing surf. Five sets of tees ensure a fair, fun challenge for every golfer, but do-or-die shots over natural gorges and ravines must be precise.
“Playing the Manele Golf Course is something magical no golfer will ever forget,” says Scott Ashworth, Manele’s PGA Director of Golf. “Golfers always want to come back for more. It is challenging and so enjoyable, even though the stunning views make you take your eye off the ball.”
Manele joins other world-class golf resort courses in the Golfweek rankings that include Pebble Beach Golf Links (California), Pinehurst No. 2 (North Carolina), and Bandon Dunes (Oregon).
“It is an honour to join this significant list of world-class golf resorts,” says Tom Roelens, General Manager ofFour Seasons Resort Lanai. “And we welcome the opportunity to share our stunning ocean view course with avid golf travellers from around the world. We know when they visit us they will enjoy a trip of a lifetime.”
