The Kiele Course at Kauai Lagoons sits in a secluded southwest corner of the island of Kauai in Hawaii, just a mere five minutes from the Lihue Airport and Nawiliwili Harbor, Kauai's main airport and seaport. Once at the course, players will discover that the famed Kiele has a sense of style uniquely its own. Its fairways weave through mango and guava tree forests, along imposing ocean cliffs and promontories high above the harbor, among some forty acres of fresh water lagoons.
It is said that when legendary golfer and architect Jack Nicklaus first created the original Kiele Course in the late 1980s, the terrain lent itself so well to his vision that he made but a single change to his original design. In 2011, Jack Nicklaus was again called upon, this time to redesign Kiele's back nine. Included in the redesign is a new ocean hole that is now the centerpiece of what is the longest stretch of continuous ocean holes of any course in Hawaii. Four fabulous holes providing over 1/2 mile of unobstructed oceanfront golf.
