The Experience at Koele was designed by legendary golfer Greg Norman and architect Ted Robinson. Part of the pair of world-class golf courses offered by the Four Seasons resorts on the island of Lanai, this inland golf course offers different obstacles for golfers. While the Challenge at Manele offers sweeping ocean views and dramatic cliffs, the Koele Lodge Golf Course has a cooler climate and wooded slopes. Terraced water hazards have proven especially challenging for those golfing on Lanai.
The course begins on a plateau at 2,000 feet above sea level. Maui can be seen across the channel from this starting point of the Experience at Koele. The front nine proceed through ravines lined with pine and eucalyptus trees. Seven lakes, streams, and waterfalls periodically come into view throughout the course. Golf at Four Seasons Lodge at Koele is further challenged by a range of architectural and terrain obstacles. An incredible combination of highland landscape makes the Koele Lodge Golf Course unique from other Hawaiian options.
Golf instruction is available and if you forget your clubs, there are plenty to rent. A driving range and putting green are available for practice before braving the eighteen holes of the Experience at Koele. The signature hole of the course is number 17, where a lake is on one side of the fairway and dense foliage is on the other. Beginning at a 250-foot elevated tee, this has proven a memorable hole for anyone lucky enough to golf at Four Seasons Lodge at Koele.
