The secluded Hawaiian island of Lanai offers a paradise of possibilities for wedding celebrations, from white-sand beaches, to lush gardens, and now to a brilliant green golf course – a pristine setting where the sweep of ocean and sky can serve as your 'something blue’ backdrop to a luxury golf course wedding at Four Seasons Resort Lanai.
On the edge of the cliffs, with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the 9,600 square-foot Manele Golf Tee Box is the perfect location for newlyweds-to-be. Manele Golf Course – an award-winning, Jack Nicklaus-designed par-72 layout built on lava outcroppings – features three holes along rugged oceanside cliffs. The golf course is recognized for its superb playability and breathtaking scenery, challenging many golfers to keep their eye on the ball.
The course’s Signature hole, number 12, is also a unique venue alternative, having been the setting of choice for Bill and Melinda Gates’ own golf course wedding. This par 3 is notorious for the demanding carry it requires across 200 yards of ocean. Whether it’s due to the Pacific Ocean acting as a water hazard that puts even the most experienced golfer’s skills to the test, or the incredibly scenic views, the 12th hole’s Black Tee is a golf experience to remember.
