Welcome to Turtle Bay Golf and the beautiful North Shore of Oahu. Opening in 1992, the Arnold Palmer Course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, was rated one of Golf Magazine’s “Top 10 New Courses” in America and ranked 4th among Golf Digest’s “Best New Resort Courses in America” the year it opened. The Palmer-Seay layout features two very distinct experiences.Plan to see Turtle Bay Golf and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kahuku trip itinerary planning app .
The front nine will challenge golfers with a Scottish Links style layout, while the back nine has a more tropical setting as it meanders through a tropical jungle and forest of ironwoods. The course forms a horseshoe around the Punaho’olapa marsh, an unspoiled 100-acre wetlands and bird sanctuary. Water comes into play on 14 of the Palmer holes. The 17th, the signature hole offers panoramic Pacific ocean views from the green while the hole is dotted with nine bunkers, which makes it as challenging as it is scenic.
The par-72 Palmer Course measures 6,225 yards from the resort tees. When played from the Palmer (black) tees, this 7,218-yard seaside course presents a stiff challenge to even the best players in the world. Sand traps are plentiful, with more than 70 menacing the fairways and protecting the greens. However, there are five sets of tees on each hole that provide an enjoyable experience for golfers of any ability. We hope you enjoy your round and your experience at Turtle Bay Resort.
Turtle Bay Golf Reviews
It was a beautiful course... don’t get me wrong. The expense is high and it just felt like we were playing back in Florida. You pay quite a bit for the name than you do the actual golf course itself. ... more »
Do the three day deal and pick your tees according to your ability Keep it on the short grass Get there early and hit a few free balls I will go back more »
Truly the only place to stay on Oahu. ( unless you own a home here. ) Old school Hawaii, with all the nicest amenities. 2 Very nice golf courses. Good food. ( expensive ). Good beginner surfing. Good snorkeling. Our 3rd stay. We'll be back again and again. See you by the pool!!
Never been in the bunkers so many times but the course and staff was great. We booked a shuttle through turtle bay and our driver was outstanding
