More about The Sony Open at the Waialae Country Club

The Sony Open in Hawaii is the largest charity golf event in Hawaii. It's held every January on the beautiful island of Oahu.

The golf course was opened for play on February 1, 1927.

Golf architect Mr. Seth Raynor and his associate, Mr. Charles Banks designed and supervised the building of Waialae.

Their outstanding work is reflected on many holes.

For example:

  • The par three 13th is designed from one on the Biarritz Course in France.
  • Waialae's 8th hole is patterned after the famous Redan hole on the North Berwick Course in Scotland.
  • The unique 16th hole is similar to the 6th hole of the National Course at Southampton, Long Island.
  • The 10th Hole introduces features of the 17th, or Road hole, at St. Andrews in Scotland.
