“The Legend of the Ladybug”

Legend says that if she lands on your shoulder,
sweet talk her to your finger and with a gentle breath, send her off.
Lady Luck will lead you to the cup.

Ko Olina Golf Club, one of Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Resort Courses in the U.S.” is a challenging 18-hole course built in 1990 by renowned golf course architect Ted Robinson.  Typical of his designs, Ko Olina Golf Club features exceptional water features, multi-tiered greens, large landing areas, and a moderate length which makes it perfect for beginners and experts alike.

The clubhouse design symbolizes all the aspirations of the resort.  Approximately 35,000 square feet, the architecture is characterized by its tri-level design and Hawaiian pitched roofs.  Broad overhangs and verandas give it an open atmosphere and provides golfers with spectacular views of the course and landscape.  In addition to men’s and ladies’ locker rooms; each equipped with showers, steam rooms and Jacuzzis, the clubhouse includes a comprehensive golf shop, recently voted the top Resort Shop by the Retail Merchants of Hawaii.

The clubhouse is also home to Roy’s Ko Olina, one of famous chef Roy Yamaguchi’s 31 iconic restaurants around the world featuring the Hawaiian Fusion cuisine he made famous and which earned him the coveted James Beard award.
