Golf

“Between the mountains and the sea. Miles of beautiful scenery unrolling before one’s eye; a splendid natural beach fringed by beautiful homes with the sea tumbling in over white sand…These will be some of the scenic wonders that will charm the golfers at the Mid-Pacific Country Club…”

The above was true when it was written in the Honolulu Advertiser in 1927 and over eighty years later the same image continues to greet our members and their guests. The course sits on 163 acres of prime Lanikai land at the foothills of Ka`iwi Ridge, overlooking Kailua town. Breathtaking views of the Ko`olau Mountains and the Pacific Ocean add to the charm of the location. The course was originally carved out of a kiawe forest, which still borders several of the fairways. Coconut palms adorn the front nine and hundreds of Norfolk pines frame the back nine.

The course measures 6,461 yards from the middle tees and 6,784 yards from the back tees and offers a challenging and enjoy able experience to golfers of all skill levels.

On the first hole, your tee shot will fly towards the majestic Ko’olau mountain range from an elevated tee. Favoring the right side of the fairway, will put you into the best position for your approach to the green. Caution: do not go over this green on your approach as getting up and down from behind the green is very challenging!

Tip on the Flop Shot- play the ball forward in your stance; open up the face of your “L” wedge; cock your wrists fully; hit down three inches behind the ball and continue through the shot generating club speed from your hands and arms. You don't need much movement in the hips and legs. If you have a full follow through, the ball should fly high and land softly! Good luck and don't forget to practice this "stroke saver". You will need it if you go over the first green!
