The Mauna Lani Resort features two 18-hole golf courses of almost equal renown — the North and South — but the latter may be more ingrained in peoples’ memory than its counterpart due to its role in the annual Senior Skins Game, which was held there from 1990 through 2000.

In particular, the memory might go to No. 15, a par three that plays 190 yards across a small bay to a clover-shaped green, with bunkers on every side. Calling that the most photogenic hole might do a disservice to No. 7, which plays 210 yards alongside a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Although these and the par four No. 13 merit mention for their prime locations, the rest of the course does due diligence while traveling along the black rock of the ancient Kaniku lava flow. The North Course may be more famous for its instance where some of the black rock serves as a bunker island, but those who land in the fairway trap at No. 10 may find themselves blocked by rock as well.

The course makes a full 18-hole loop, finally returning to the clubhouse — which it shares with the North Course — after the final hole.
