Turtle Bay Resort features over 400 luxurious rooms and suites as well as beach villas and condos, including Turtle Bay Rentals, just footsteps away from three iconic bays on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Among the accommodations, ranging from a variety of tours and lessons, restaurants to dine to a spa for some relaxing services, two of the most notable aspects of Turtle Bay Resort are its premiere Golf Courses—Fazio and Palmer.
The Fazio Course, designed by George Fazio and built during the early 1970’s, is an eighteen hole course with a par of 72. Although a shorter course with back tees at approximately 6,500 yards, the degree of challenge makes up for its length. As noted by the list of well known golfers that have competed in the LPGA Tour’s Hawaii Open and The Inaugural Champion’s Tour Skins Game in the past. With Paspalum greens and majestic views, especially at the back nine, the Fazio Course is a must for every golf enthusiast and a great preparation for the Palmer Course.
The Palmer Course, designed by Arnold Palmer and built during the 1990’s and, among many accolades, rated within the top 100 golf courses in the country by Golf Digest, is a par 72 course measuring out to an astounding 7,218 yards. Three notable traits that set the Palmer Course apart from other courses are the natural wetlands, tree lined fairways, and ocean breezes. These three traits add both beauty as well as the heightened challenge that make golf “the sport of kings” and, of course, queens.
Throw in the top notch practice facilities, and its many other accommodations, and Turtle Bay Resort is a must for every golfer.
