The Arnold Palmer Course at Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu — an Arnold Palmer/Ed Seay design that gives you a taste of Scotland and a splash of jungle, all wrapped in a beautiful Hawaiian beach-front package — is this week’s featured course at HawaiiGolf.com, the leading site for anyone planning to play golf in Hawaii.
The distinctive 18-hole championship course features a front nine that plays like Scottish Links with sand, water and rolling terrain and a back nine that rolls through a jungle forest of pine. The 17th hole, its signature, has nine bunkers leading up to a green that sits on a plateau 100 feet from the ocean.
The Palmer Course is the home to an annual event on the LPGA Tour. The course surrounds a wetland preserve known as the Punaho’olapa Marsh, which is home to many endangered Hawaiian birds.
