Carved out of the rugged coast, the Challenge at Manele sprawls across ancient lava fields, with 180-degree ocean panoramas from every hole. A theater of color unfolds: red cliffs plunging down to blue sea, green fairways engulfing white sandtraps, and blossoms from fissures in the black lava rock. This was the palette of designer Jack Nicklaus, who shaped the 7,039–yard, par 72 championship course, carefully protecting and preserving the archaeological ruins within its borders.

Teeing off from the cliffs at Hulopoe Bay with the Pacific surging below, you face perhaps the world's most unforgiving water hazard. The twelfth hole is nothing short of a leap of faith, with 200 yards of churning waves to cross. Other holes demand shots over yawning ravines. Fortunately, the five-tee concept - with courses of shorter yardage mapped in red, white, blue, gold and "Nicklaus" - allows golfers of all levels to emerge unscathed.

Stunning views No doubt this is a beautiful course. Staff is friendly but prior planning will help. The ferry over takes longer than expected. Food is scarce depending on your tee time; restaurants open only 11-3, bev cart was out of wraps, no food or drink at ferry terminal. $ 215 to play, $60 round trip ferry, $20 entrance fee....but it's really full of stunning views! Would I recommend? Yes, but with caveats. We joked that the experience and challenge really referred to getting there. Btw : greens are slow and don't break as much as you think. April 26, 2013
Spectacular course, not to be missed! Beautiful views from every hole. Best course we played in two weeks in Hawaii! The course conditions were perfect, and a Great deal. We got tee times, round trip ferry service and shuttle to and from Lahaina harbor. Thank you Golf Now! December 1, 2012
Amazing Course - if on Lanai, a must do. We took the ferry from Lanai and played the Challenge. Amazing views, great staff, and was not full at all. Definitely should do if in the area. November 28, 2012
course was great The course was challenging but still fun to play, minus the 50mph wind. Staff were friendly, food was great. We look foward to coming back and playing it again November 27, 2012
Always such a pleasure to play This was our third time to ferry over and play the Challenge. It is such a beautiful course. They have cut down a lot of trees opening more views to the ocean on the back 9. The name speaks for itself. It is a challenge to play, however, I only lost a couple balls! The ravines and fairway obstacles and angles make it fun and very challenging. The course was in great shape. The outside staff was very friendly and accommodating. We got distracted watching dolphins play while on #18. November 19, 2012
What a course! Absolutely fabulous, every hole is on the water. Would go back in a heart beat. The restaurant was great, the staff at the pro shop and restaurant were pros! Excellent condition, like walking on a carpet. No ball marks on the greens and very well maintained. Beautiful, beautiful my beautiful wife absolutely loved the course. We will be back in the future. One great thing about the trip was the boat ride to and from Lahaina to Lanai...... September 26, 2012
