Not to be outdone, the impeccable Bay Course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane, offers 6,600 yards of luscious and expansive fairways. The course begins and ends on a plateau near the award-winning Pineapple Grill restaurant. With the signature fifth hole shooting dramatically over Oneloa Bay, the stunning ocean vista is a welcome distraction from the sport. The Bay Course has previously played host to the LPGA Classic.
