Detailed description

Volcano Golf Course is a public 18-hole golf course located in VOLCANO, Hawaii.

Volcano Golf Course, The Big Island's oldest golf course, opened for play in the 1920s and is set at 4,200 feet of elevation, just a driver/wedge from the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. For over 100 years at Volcano Golf Course, guests have been treated to panoramic views of both Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea while playing alongside endemic %u014Chi%u02BBa trees that bloom vibrant red, and the N%u0113n%u0113, Hawaii’s state bird that nest throughout the property.  This 18-Hole Golf Course is set at the rim of the active Kilauea volcanic crater, 4000 feet above sea level, making it a truly unique golfing experience.

The course is one of the world's most unusual courses. Situated on the rim of the active Kilauea volcanic crater, Volcano Golf Course lies in the cool highlands 4,000 feet above the sea, with sweeping vistas of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea (both snowcapped in winter). The course is 18 holes, par 72, a total of 6,547 yards of playing area. Located in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, a scenic 30-mile drive from Hilo; the course also offers full restaurant and bar facilities.

Crisp fresh air and elevation deliver extra distance on well-struck shots even though cooler temperatures prevail. A delightful layout offers more than a decent challenge in the midst of stunning views of the Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes and between the pine and %u014Chi%u02BBa trees. The back nine has several marvelous holes, with one of Hawaii's best par-5s at the 17th Hole. Some say the most difficult hole on the course is #15, a 425-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot up a dogleg fairway with tall pines guarding the turn.

This is a par 72 course that plays to 6,547 yards from the blue tees, 6,190 yards from the white tees, and 5,567 yards from the red tee boxes.

The course closed between 2020 and March 31, 2022.
