Welcome to Turtle Bay Golf and the beautiful North Shore of Oahu. Opening in 1992, the Arnold Palmer Course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, was rated one of Golf Magazine’s “Top 10 New Courses” in America and ranked 4th among Golf Digest’s “Best New Resort Courses in America” the year it opened. The Palmer-Seay layout features two very distinct experiences.Plan to see Turtle Bay Golf and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kahuku trip itinerary planning app.
The front nine will challenge golfers with a Scottish Links style layout, while the back nine has a more tropical setting as it meanders through a tropical jungle and forest of ironwoods. The course forms a horseshoe around the Punaho’olapa marsh, an unspoiled 100-acre wetlands and bird sanctuary. Water comes into play on 14 of the Palmer holes. The 17th, the signature hole offers panoramic Pacific ocean views from the green while the hole is dotted with nine bunkers, which makes it as challenging as it is scenic.
The par-72 Palmer Course measures 6,225 yards from the resort tees. When played from the Palmer (black) tees, this 7,218-yard seaside course presents a stiff challenge to even the best players in the world. Sand traps are plentiful, with more than 70 menacing the fairways and protecting the greens. However, there are five sets of tees on each hole that provide an enjoyable experience for golfers of any ability. We hope you enjoy your round and your experience at Turtle Bay Resort.

Will not be returning. Credit card machine went down while it was processing my tee time transaction. Cashier rebooted the system and ran my card again, which created a duplicate charge. They alerted me that this might happen and to contact them if it did. Called the pro shop. Person I spoke with said the head pro wasn't available and asked me to call back, rather than take my number down and call me. Still haven't been able to reach them. Sent an email to the pro shop twice, haven't received any response in over a week. Had to file a dispute with my bank to get the charge reversed. The Palmer course and facilities were nice, but the customer service related to the issue I experienced has been non-existent.
Went for lunch at the sunset restaurant and waiter was very rude . I was with my puppy and I sat him on the chair so he came and scolded me loudly to put puppy down under the table so i did put him down and second time another big dog came around so I hold my puppy and again he came and scolded me to put him down. He was not even my waiting staff(My waiting staff was excellent) i accept that his rudeness’s but I was wonder the Turtle bay hotel management. Management allow the employees treat customer badly.
