Manele Course at Four Seasons Resort Lānaȉ Among Top 20 Golf Resort Courses in the Country

(LĀNA‘I CITY, HI) – The ultimate in must-play golf experiences, the Manele Course at Four Seasons Resort Lānaȉ has been listed among the Top 20 resort courses in the United States for 2017 by Golfweek magazine.

The breathtaking Jack Nicklaus Signature golf design is ranked No. 18, a remarkable jump up the list from last year, when it was No. 36. Manele also is one of only two Hawaii courses in the Top 20 of Golfweek’s annual ranking of the 200 “Best Resort Courses.”  Kapalua’s Plantation Course on Maui is No. 13.

One of the elite venues in the game – yet still very much untouched and uncrowded – the breathtaking Manele layout is built on lava outcroppings and features three holes along rugged oceanside cliffs. The course offers heavenly views of the Pacific on all 18 holes.  Its signature hole is No. 12, a par 3 where the tee sits 150 feet above the crashing surf. Five sets of tees ensure a fair, fun challenge for every golfer, but do-or-die shots over natural gorges and ravines must be precise.

“Playing the Manele Golf Course is something magical no golfer will ever forget,” said Scott Ashworth, Manele’s PGA director of golf. “Golfers always want to come back for more. It is challenging and so enjoyable, even though the stunning views make you take your eye off the ball.”

Manele joins other world-class golf resort courses in the Golfweek rankings that include Pebble Beach Golf Links (California), Pinehurst No. 2 (North Carolina), and Bandon Dunes (Oregon).

“It is an honor to join this significant list of world-class golf resorts,” said Tom Roelens, general manager of Four Seasons Resort Lāna‘i, “and we welcome the opportunity to share our stunning ocean view course with avid golf travelers from around the world. We know when they visit us they will enjoy a trip of a lifetime.”

Located on a pristine island, Four Seasons Resorts Lāna‘i reflects a simpler pace of life and the spirit of old Hawai‘i, offering unique cultural adventures, a myriad of air, water and land activities that complement its world-class golf.

The Four Seasons Resort Lanai features 213 guestrooms, lobbies and seating areas for contemplation, multiple dining experiences such as the signature AAA Four Diamond rated ONE FORTY restaurant and NOBU LANAI, the Spa, luxury retail boutiques, tennis complex and a complimentary activity program. A resort with its own island to explore, guests can enjoy upcountry adventures on horse or UTV, fly on helicopter tours, snorkel, sail or scuba dive, explore heritage sites or simply relax on secluded beaches.
