Some of the very best golf courses to be found in Hawaii are located on the island of Lanai. The first among them is the Challenge at Manele and is located down on the water close to the Manele Bay Hotel. The entire course was carved out of a lava field and when your ball leaves the boundaries of the course it will end up in the lava fields out of bounds and will not be able to be played. You are rewarded however by hitting the ball onto the fairway as the grass perfectly holds up your ball like it was on a tee. The second course is called Koele and is located up near the Lodge at Koele at the top of the island. This course is beautiful also but very different as it is located on a forested area at about the 2000' elevation. Expeditions Ferry Service has special packages that will allow you to travel from Maui to Lanai and play one of these courses and then return later in the day on the ferry to Maui.
The Expeditions Ferry Service is the main means of transportation to shuttle back and forth between the islands of Maui and Lanai. Ferry service on this picturesque commute can be purchased separately or it can be included as a package with a day-tour activity on Lanai such as a golf package, jeep rental, sightseeing tour or horseback ride.
