The Original Fazio Golf Course at Turtle Bay

Though his nephew Tom is in many circles better known, experts in the industry know that George Fazio has all the skills of his prominent kin. It certainly shows at this Turtle Bay Resort golf course, where his original design from 40 years ago still holds its own today.

The Fazio design is generally more forgiving than the Palmer Course. The walker-friendly layout meanders among traditional Hawaiian Palms while skirting the North Shore on numerous occasions. The Tom Fazio Course holds its own as a classic Hawaiian golf experience, and is perfect for those enjoying multiple days at the resort (and a great primer for the Palmer experience).

Over the years the Tom Fazio Course has played host to a number of prominent golf events, including:

  • The LPGA Tour's Hawaiian Open
  • The Inaugural Champions Tour Skins Game, which featured Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Gary Player, and Chi Chi Rodriguez
We offer shuttle service from Waikiki for $25 with a Fazio morning tee time- learn more here.

The Fazio Course is generally considered the more forgiving of the two courses for Turtle Bay Resort golf, but that doesn't mean it can't pack a punch. Holes are receptive off the tee, but the greens are raised and somewhat small, making for challenging approaches and short game play.
