We are pleased to announce that the Ocean Course at Hokuala was awarded North America’s Best Golf Course in 2017 by the World Golf Awards. Also nominated were the esteemed Bandon Dunes, Augusta National, and Pebble Beach golf courses, and we are honored to have received an award with such world-renowned competition. Last year August National won North America’s Best Golf Course award, so it is a true testament to the Ocean Course’s place among the greatest golf courses in the world.
The Ocean Course’s pro designer, Jack Nicklaus, also received the distinction of winning World Golf Award’s Golf Course Designer of the Year. The Ocean Course is the only Nicklaus Course on the island of Kauai. Though this was the 4th year of the World Golf Awards, the organization is quickly becoming one of the leaders in the Golf Tourism Industry.
