Founded in 1926 by Scottish engineers employed at the local sugar plantation, Hamakua is the  second oldest golf course on the island. The nine-hole layout plays to a 4,800 yard par 66 when played twice from the two sets of tees. Located at 1,200 feet above sea level on the rural northeast coast, Hamakua offers a cultural as much as a golf experience. $20 gives you unlimited golf all day, and the “honor” system is in play- put your money in the slot if no one’s around!
