“Every great beach deserves a great hotel.”
This was said by Laurance S. Rockefeller, who founded the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in 1965. He knew the great beach at Kauna’oa also deserved spectaclar golf and exceptional dining to accompany the most exclusive and expensive resort of its day. Four decades later, following a $150 million repair and renovation, the Mauna Kea once again stands as a landmark of luxury on the Big Island’s golden Kohala Coast.
Mauna Kea Golf Course remains the standard by which all island courses are judged. It too was recently renovated by Rees Jones, son of Robert Trent Jones Sr. the original designer.
“We re-did the greens, tees, bunkers, everything,” said the affable Rees. “It is restored to the great standard my father originated.” A favorite of Golf Hawaii’s Mark Rolfing, the Mauna Kea Resort courses feature rolling fairways, sweeping shorelines, dramatic contours and incomparable hospitality. Mauna Kea Resort, a member of Prince Resorts Hawaii also features the Hapuna Golf Course, designed by Arnold Palmer. Conde’ Nast Traveler calls them “two ofthe best golf courses in the world.”
