The Spirit of Kaloko Along the western coastline of the Island of Hawai'i lies hot, rugged lava. The reason why the Hawaiians chose to settle here was, perhaps, a spiritual one, for there was a spirit. The Hawaiians felt its presence in every rock and tree, in the water and in the winds. Perhaps you too will experience this spirit on your visit to this National Historical Park.
This spectacular lava-lined course offers four sets of tees. The lava areas coming into play on every hole are considered to be water hazards. Even with all the lava in play, the fairways still afford generous landing areas. Depending on weather conditions, this course can play quite long. The greens are loaded with subtle breaks and are generally fast. Some of the more interesting characteristics to this course begins on hole #1, a 385-yard, par 4, which plays up to a lava flow. Furthermore, hole #4 shares an enormous double green with hole #8. Read more: http://www.golf.com/golf/courses_travel/coursefinder/course/0,28290,1487018,00.html#ixzz0ytjJWFnG
