Set 2,000 feet above sea level, The Experience at Koele lures players with lush landscaping, beautiful ocean, lake and mountain vistas and incredibly varied terrain. The waterfalls, ravines, pine foliage and occasional roaming wildlife accent the impressive holes you'll want to write home about. This traditional, par 72 resort course, sister course to Manele Golf Course, was designed by Greg Norman in 1991 with architect Ted Robinson's eye for seamlessly integrating the architecture with its impressive natural setting and water elements. The pièce de résistance is signature hole 17, a 250-foot drop from the tee located in a lush gorge. Amenities such as a pro shop, putting green, club rental, driving range and instruction are par for the course at this unforgettable island experience.
