Read about how we rank Things to Do.

The famous Jack Nicklaus designed the Manele Golf Course, and its position along Lanai's southern coast impresses golfers with its difficulty and architecture. The course boasts lush vegetation, ocean cliffs, seaside fairways and the occasional whale sighting (especially during the winter when whales are passing through the bay).

Past visitors raved about the excellent service and "breathtaking" views at the Manele Golf Course and suggested travelers have a meal at the Views restaurant after playing a round. 

Guests staying at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai receive preferred rates; 18-hole, nine-hole and junior rates available. A wide variety of programs and lessons are available from PGA pros, as well as a retail shop. A tee time costs about $350 per person. For more information, visit the resort's website.
