Nestled into the West Maui Mountains, The King Kamehameha Golf Club is a home away from home to members from around the globe. The pure golf experience has no homes, resorts, or roads around the course to block the panoramic views of Mt. Haleakalā and bi-coastal views of the Pacific Ocean. The golf course was originally designed by Ted Robinson, Sr. and later refreshed by his son, Ted Robinson, Jr., using their three core design elements of flexibility, memorability, and natural beauty. Based on skill levels, members and guests can attack from any of the five sets of tees while the golf course defends its self with challenging bunker placements, tiered greens, and five spectacular water features.

The King Kamehameha Golf Club is also home to one of the most beautiful and unique clubhouses in the world. A modification of a Frank Lloyd Wright home design, the 74,778 square foot clubhouse is filled with artwork honoring those who have come before by creating a cultural sense of place. The history of the area is brought to life with spectacular displays of art throughout the building.
