Longest / Hardest Course You've Played??
Posted 12 January 2013 - 07:34 AM
78.5/147, 7813 yards. Par 3s of 250 and 265, all carry over water (the tees are not on the scorecard, but were there when i played). two 700-yard+ par 5s.
I played the Judge (along with the other two, btw) on Thursday. It's most certainly extremely difficult from those back tees. But (at the risk of Animal coming and saying I don't know what I'm talking about or just like to bash the Trail) some of the par 3's are simply idiotic from the back tees. The 6th hole is 231 to an island green. The 16th is 256 yards to a green on a peninsula with a bunker in front of the green and the entire land area is only about 35 yards deep. From the white tees, even the orange tees, where everyone plays, the course is fine. But from the back markers, it gets stupid. Plus, the par 3's are kind of like Groundhog Day anyway. And the 11th hole was just bad from the back tees. However, after all that running the course down...I liked the 1st hole quite a bit, has a ton of options off the tee if you take enough time to look for them. 18th hole is very good as well, some friends of mine don't like the waterfall, but they have to get water from the top of the property down somehow, might as well make it look cool. I also really liked 10 from the back markers, 711 yards. I'd play it again, that's for sure, but yes, it's really hard.

Golf at Ko’olau Golf Club
Listed by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Places You Can Play,” and ranked seventh on Golflink.com’s “Top 100 United States Golf Courses” in 2008-2012, Ko’olau Golf Club has earned a place as one of the most unique and beautiful golf experiences in the United States. Designed by renowned course architect Dick Nugent in 1992, the 7,310-yard 18-hole golf course seamlessly incorporates the surrounding landscape and beauty into its layout—using ravines as the target for holes and large sand bunkers as deterrents to wayward shots. Although Ko’olau has rightly earned its reputation for being one of the most challenging courses in the nation when playing from the back tees, there are four other sets of tees to choose to match your level of play. With scenery second-to-none, Ko’olau Golf Club offers something for everyone. Golf in Hawaii would not be complete without visiting and experiencing Ko’olau Golf Club.
