Kona Country Club

. A mile south of the Surf & Racquet Club is the Kona Country Club, which has two beautiful golf courses open for public play. The Ocean Course is generally flat and takes advantage of its gorgeous oceanfront location surrounding Keauhou Bay with several holes right on the water. The Mountain Course is more difficult, very hilly, and rises several hundred feet up the slopes of Mauna Loa.

The views of the Kona coast are magnificent. Tee times are easy to get year round. Like all golf in Hawaii, it's not cheap to play, but the course offers reduced rates after 2:00 pm.
