The 7th hole is one of the most picturesque holes in Hawaii as it reveals dramatic vistas of the golf course, the lava rocks and the stunning Pacific Ocean.

The beauty of the course is that it has four sets of tees for golfers to choose from. The shortest being the forward tees, which measure 5,459 years, to the longest being the Kings’ Tees which measure 7,074 yards.

The Kings’ Course is characterized as a golf course designed in the finest of Scottish traditions. The course’s double green which is used by both the 3rd and 4th hotels, its deep bunkering system, and its two “drive-able” Par 4 holes are design characteristics usually found only in Scotland.
