Hawaii Prince Golf Course
Interchangeable nines made for royalty
Unique to all of the Aloha State, the Arnold Palmer- and Ed Seay-designed Hawaii Prince Golf Club offers three interchangeable nines to play out various 18-hole combinations. Long, verdant fairways are home to 90 white sand bunkers, 10 lakes and panoramic views of the Waianae Mountain Range in Waikiki.
What We Love:
- You can mix and match your golf game with interchangeable nines
- Water hazards abound: Water comes into play on six holes on the A course, three on B and seven on C
Although it is the least challenging of combinations, water hazards, sand bunkers and mounding strategically placed throughout the golf course, give this combo plenty of personality.
The last hole on the B course will challenge you right up until the end; after negotiating the trade winds on this par 4 with water to the left, front and right of the tee, you'll be ready for a cocktail and a pupu platter at the Bird of Paradise Restaurant
That final par 4 hole on the B course will make you work to get to C at Hawaii Prince Golf Club, where water hazards come into play 10 times throughout this combo course. The closing holes of B and opening ones of C are affectionately nicknamed "the longest mile of Hawaiian golf."
The most challenging of the three combos, golfers looking for a true challenge will find it here. In addition to having to make the right shots time and time again, you can enjoy the views of the Waianae Mountains and lush landscape.
“ If you are visiting between November and February, don’t miss Waimea Bay on the North Shore where the island’s top surfers take on 30-foot waves ”
IN SHORT / WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
- Of the interchangeable combinations, C/A is the most challenging.
- Among the most difficult holes of all three courses is No. 9 on the B course. With water to the left, front and right of the tee – and trade winds a blowin', you'll be in for a challenge.
