Kohanaiki is an invitation-only private club community in Hawai’i, carefully crafted on 450 oceanfront acres of the Big Island of Hawai`i. Once the playground of Hawai`i’s greatest king, Kamehameha I, its shores are steeped in history with sacred artifacts, cultural landmarks, and petroglyphs, situated among a rustic mixture of rolling golf greens, sacred ponds, lava flows, palm trees, and a 1½ mile stretch of stunning Kona coastline.
Kohanaiki represents an evolution of the private club experience, instilling a welcoming, relaxed, and comfortable lifestyle that is reflected in the warm and graceful attentiveness of the staff and the sense of genuine community among members.
Home to the only Rees Jones golf course in Hawai’i, Kohanaiki’s 18-hole course is both beautiful and, at times, wonderfully distracting. The 7,329-yard, par-72 course winds across more than 100 acres with six ocean-front holes set along 1½ miles of shoreline. It is challenging, yet infinitely fun.
Crafted around 14 historic Ahu (ancient rock shrines), the emerald green SeaDwarf paspalum turf intertwines with flows of black volcanic rock, historic structures and 200 protected anchialine ponds, home to n...ative and migratory birds and wildlife. Kohanaiki has taken painstaking measures throughout to honor the history and natural beauty of the area.
To maintain the course in pristine condition while keeping operating costs to a minimum, Kohanaiki invested in a solar powered desalination and reverse-osmosis system that provides the 1 million gallons of water per day needed to water the entire property.
