Hokuli'a is Home

Your Canvas Awaits

The most desireable private oceanside golf community in the world.

The overall community of Hokuli’a consists of 1,300 acres, spanning two and a half miles along the gorgeous Kona Coast of the Island of Hawai’i, minutes from the coastal town of Kailua-Kona.

Hokuli’a occupies the seaward portion of what were once 11 ahupua’a (traditional Hawai'ian land divisions) on either side of the boundary between the present day districts of North and South Kona. Archaeology studies of the area have suggested four distinct eras of historical settlement at Hokuli’a stretching back as far as A.D. 1250.

Real Hawai'i

Tradition on the big island

Today, Hokuli’a sits in the heart of the traditional Hawai'i, surrounded by vibrant farming communities, historical sites (Captain Cook landed just around the corner at Kealakakua Bay discovering Hawai'i in 1778), and cultural landmarks.

Poke shacks and cafes dot the high road from Kailua-Kona to Kealakekua offering tasty locally grown (or caught) food, stunning views and a chance to tune into “the coconut wireless” with the locals. Coffee tasting shacks offer the chance to taste the area’s local coffee varietal.

Kailua-Kona itself is 15 minutes away offering a wealth of shopping and dining experiences, yet a totally different energy to the tourist towns and resorts.

Hokuli’a offers the experience of real Hawai'i where members and visitors can learn what it means to live like a local in Hawai'i, a place where visitors and locals meet in the street, the grocery store or at a café, a place where the ‘Spirit of Aloha’ flourishes.

Extraordinary Golf

Jack Nicklaus Signature Design

“There is no other property as well-suited for golf in all the Hawai'ian Islands. Beautiful natural land. Dramatic ocean vistas. Warm, dry, year round weather. And no wind - only soft ocean breezes.”
-Jack Nicklaus

The Club at Hokuli’a’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, the only private, oceanside golf course on the island ranked 5th in Hawai'i by Golf Digest, rises from sea level to approximately 400 feet. Every hole is framed by a dramatic ocean view and some holes run directly along the ocean.


Quiet and Convenient

Hokuli'a is only 30 minutes from the Kona International Airport (KOA) and 15 minutes outside of Kailua-Kona, the largest town on Hawai‘i Island. Kailua-Kona offers restaurants, shops, galleries and services as well as the Kona Hospital.

Just above the Hokuli‘a entrance gate are the towns of Kealakekua and Captain Cook, in the center of Kona coffee country.
