The Challenge at Manele
1233 Fraser Avenue
Lanai City, Lanai, HI 96763

High above the crashing surf of Hulopo'e Bay, The Challenge at Manele is an outstanding Lanai golf course that more than lives up to its name. Built on lava outcroppings, the course features three holes on cliffs which use the Pacific Ocean as a water hazard. The five-tee concept challenges the best golfers tee shots over natural gorges and ravines must be precise. This dramatic, unspoiled natural terrain is a stunning backdrop, and every hole offers majestic ocean views. During the winter, you may even catch spectacular sightings of whales right from the fairways.

The signature hole is the #12 (also the scene of Bill Gate's wedding), a beautiful par 3, in which you tee off from a cliff over the ocean with the green located on another cliff. The carry on this hole from the men's tee is about 185 yards. From the championship tee it requires a 202 yard tee shot to reach the green. Hole #17 is another beautiful hole, with a 215-yard carry over the ocean from the back tee. The course has several blind tee and approach shots. There are several sand bunkers on the course, a few constructed with multiple fingers. Hole #16, a 458-yard, par 4, has a sand bunker in the middle of the fairway.
