Consistently regarded as the best course on Oahu (and among the very best on all the islands), the Turtle Bay Palmer Course is an absolute must-play during your visit to the area.

Set along Hawaii's North Shore, home to Pipeline, Sunset Beach, and Waimea Bay, the course meanders its way through the natural wetlands, and circumvents natural waterways and dense Hawaiian jungle that offers great protection from the coastal winds, and meets the ocean coast on its penultimate signature hole, the par-4 17th.

If you're only in Hawaii for one week each year, and you may only have the opportunity to play one round of golf, shouldn't that round of golf be the best it can possibly be? Choose the Arnold Palmer Golf Course at Turtle Bay, and be the envy of your friends back on the mainland.

We offer shuttle service from Waikiki for free with a Palmer morning tee time- learn more here.
