Spooner Spotlight: Royal Hawaiian Golf Club

Hawai'i is known for its numerous beautiful golf courses, and one of our favorite places to play on O'ahu is the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club. Located at the base of the Ko'olau Mountian Range with the colossal Mt. Olomana in the background, the course winds through tropical rain forests with breathtaking views – making it the ultimate golfer's paradise.

The challenging course opened in 1993 and was co-designed by the renowned architects Peter and Perry Dye. It recently underwent a redesign by the legendary golfer Greg Norman. The experience of playing this picturesque public course is best described as golfing in Jurassic Park without the dinosaurs.

Meet the General Manager: Guy Yamamoto

Today, General Manager Guy Yamamoto runs the course. Guy is the winner of the 1994 U.S. Amateur Public Links and was a participant in the prestigious 1995 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia.

Hailing from Kauai, Guy defeated over 5,300 other golfers to win the championship, becoming the fourth Hawaiian and first person from Kauai to hold the trophy. If you have a chance to play the Royal Hawaiian course, make sure you say "Aloha," to Guy.
