Hokuala course wins World Golf Award

The Ocean Course at Hokuala — the acclaimed Jack Nicklaus signature course with a half-mile of magnificent ocean views on Kauai — was named “Hawaii’s Best Golf Course” for the third consecutive year by the 2019 World Golf Awards.

The honor adds to a string of significant acclaim for the Ocean Course and Timbers Kauai, also recognized as a Top-30 Resort in Hawaii by the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

“We are so grateful to again earn this distinguished World Golf Award, particularly in the golf-rich state of Hawaii,” said Kellie Hines, PGA head golf professional at the Ocean Course at Hokuala.

“These honors are a true testament to our goal of providing genuine service and experiences at our beautiful golf course.”

The Ocean Course is part of Timbers Kauai Ocean Club &Residences, a new private residential club that opened June 1, 2018, on the island’s southeast coast.

The award-winning ocean course fully transformed in 2017 with world-class TifEagle greens, bright white silica sand bunkers, an expanded driving range, a new halfway house, and retrofitted Golf-boards for guests to “surf the earth.”
