Golf Hole Photo Of The Week (Dec. 3rd, 2013)

Do you recognize this Tee Shot?

This is the Tee Shot of the 3rd Hole of Manua Kea Golf Course in Kohala Coast in Hawaii.

The tee shot is played from a cliff across a bay to another cliff where the green is located. As if this shot isn’t hard enough, the green is surrounded by seven bunkers and rocks and water is just a few steps behind the green.

This course is the #31st out of the 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses in America, designed in 1964 by Robert Trent Jones, Sr and recently updated by Rees Jones.

Jones Jr. re-planted ultra-dwarf Tifeagle Bermudagrass on the Greens, and Tifway 419 hybrid Bermudagrass on the Tees, Fairways and Roughs. He increased the amount of bunkers in the course to 99 and added 200 more Yards creating multiple tees for all players.

This course has to be a destination for every golfer that goes to Hawaii. It is a challenging but definitely worthwhile incredible experience; unfortunately we haven’t been able to go, but we are sure that it is one of the most amazing golf courses a golfer can play.

Enjoy your Golf!
