Pearl at Kalauao is dedicated to providing an enriched golfing experience for golfers of all backgrounds, embracing both kama‘āina (person of the land) and malihini (visitors) to Hawai‘i nei.

E Komo Mai | WELCOME

Pearl at Kalauao fosters a strong sense of community, connecting people through shared passions of golf, ‘ono food, and memorable gatherings.
Serving the golf community since 1967, Pearl at Kalauao is one of the finest golf courses on O‘ahu. Like a momi (pearl), it is a gleaming gem nestled in the heart of Kalauao.

Designed by Akira Sato, the par-72 course challenges golfers of all skill levels yet rewards all who visit with vast panoramas of Pu‘uloa (Pearl Harbor), the Ko‘olau, and the Wai‘anae mountains to the West. In 2020, the golf course ownership and management reverted to Kamehameha Schools after a 55-year ground lease with Honda Kaihatsu Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha, an entity created by Mr. Soichiro Honda (founder and former president of the Honda Motor Co. LTD.) making Pearl at Kalauao, the only locally-owned public golf course in Hawai‘i

Throughout its history, Pearl has maintained a steadfast dedication to serving the community, fostering international goodwill, and providing both kama‘āina and visitors with an unparalleled golf experience. As the steward of this ‘āina,

Kamehameha Schools upholds these values while ensuring the resiliency of these lands to support the well-being Native Hawaiian learners and the vibrancy of the greater community. Whether you’re a first-time guest or a loyal regular, we’re honored to serve you as part of our ‘ohana. Welcome (back) to
Pearl at Kalauao.
Pearl at Kalauao redefines the golf experience as a preferred gathering place featuring a refreshed, challenging course, amenities and facilities that celebrate the area’s rich history. ‘Ohana are invited to enjoy Pearl’s upgraded banquet, meeting and special event facilities, as well as delicious dining options that complement the picturesque 18-hole golf course. The varied terrain, challenging layout and stunning panoramic views tee up a memorable round for golfers of all levels of play, and this hidden gem continues to dazzle first-time and loyal players.

In early January 2024, the entire golf course will shut down to complete the remaining 9 holes of irrigation, as well as rebuilding all 20 green complexes. Although this will affect golf play and tournaments, we are excited that our reopening will offer an improved golfing experience, including better greens and advanced irrigation, for a more enjoyable round of golf.

The clubhouse will also be closed in January 2024, to complete the upgrades and renovations. Our goal is to reopen both the golf course and clubhouse by the end of 2024 and will keep our guests informed about timing as more information becomes available.

At the heart of these improvements is a commitment to responsible stewardship of ‘āina (land), combined with the importance of both honoring and integrating the Hawaiian culture and the area’s rich history.
Tee off on our newly renovated course at Pearl at Kalauao. With cutting-edge facilities set to debut in 2025, this promises an unparalleled experience.
Nestled amidst a stunning panoramic backdrop, our brand-new venues at Pearl at Kalauao, set to unveil in 2025, offer a captivating setting. Our devoted professional catering staff takes immense pleasure in assisting you to create the wedding or reception of a lifetime.
