GolfWeek Names Manele Golf Course at Four Seasons Resort Lanai Top Course in Hawaii

September 22, 2022,
Hawaii, Lanai, U.S.A.

Manele Golf Course has been recognized as the highest-ranked public course in Hawaii by GolfWeek in their 2022 Best Courses You Can Play. The Signature Jack Nicklaus 18-hole course at Four Seasons Resort Lanai is built on lava outcroppings and features three cliff-top holes that use the Pacific Ocean as a water hazard. Besides being #1 among Hawaii’s public-access layouts, it ties for #32 among all modern courses built since 1960 in the US.

Alastair McAlpine, General Manager, Four Seasons Resorts Lanai says, “This award is a testament to the commitment and efforts of every individual on our golf team, from our professional staff and colleagues in the Pro Shop to our stellar maintenance crew that keeps our greens in the best shape for play for our guests.”

“I believe our focus on guests from the time they arrive until they leave along with a beautiful course is key to our success,” shares Scott Ashworth, Director of Golf. “There are tee times at the course but we don’t rush our golfers or pair them up if they’d rather play alone, so players feel like they are having a private experience playing at their own speed.  Ocean views on every hole don’t hurt either!”

McAlpine concludes, “I’m extremely proud of our daily commitment to getting the course in perfect order and ensuring our guests feel personally looked after, and our teams, helmed by Superintendent Seril Shimizu and Head Golf Professional Kendric Kimizuku ensure a superior golf experience on Lanai.”

Making it easier than ever to play the course, guests can utilize a set of complimentary Titleist or PXG clubs for 9- or 18-hole rounds.  The professional staff carry out a variety of programs including Clinics, Golf 101, Trackman 4 technology sessions to analyse video golf swings, professional club fittings as well as complimentary fun events that are great for families and non-golfers.  

Visitors to the adults-only Sensei Lanai, A Four Seasons Resort can also enjoy playing Manele Golf Course when booking a round independently or part of a Sensei package, including a Golf Optimal Golf Well-Being Program dedicated to optimizing golf performance.
