Volcano Golf Course, Hawai‘i Island’s first and oldest golf course, has partnered with Volcano Winery to offer “Tee and Taste” – an exclusive package pairing golf play with a tasting of the finest of local wines.
“We love to explore new partnerships that support Volcano community members and businesses,” said Volcano Course General Manager Dawn Crozier. “Volcano is known for its natural beauty and uniqueness, and this collaboration allows us to share this special place through its golf and wines.”
Every Tee and Taste package includes five holes of walking play at Volcano Golf Course, as well as a certificate for a tasting of six wines and two estate teas at Volcano Winery. The tasting certificates can be redeemed anytime at the winery, which is open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Tee and Taste packages can be purchased for $25 for kama‘āina and $35 for visitors at the Volcano Golf Course check-in.
Volcano Golf Course has been a gathering place for the community since opening in 1921 as a three-hole course on pasture lands. Today, the now 18-hole, par-72 course spans 156 acres adjacent to Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Since the return of the property to Kamehameha Schools in 2020, the landowner has focused its efforts on making necessary investments to enhance the golf experience while prioritizing the continued stewardship of ‘āina and the native wildlife and plants that make this place so unique.
“The Volcano Golf Course has served the Hawai‘i Island community for over 100 years,” said Crozier. “Our kuleana is to steward these lands in support of Kamehameha Schools’ educational mission, as well as ensure this cherished course continues to serve the needs of the greater community.”
Just a short two-minute drive away from the first tee at the golf course, Volcano Winery features several signature wines, including the Volcano Red, Hawaiian Guava-Grape, Volcano Blush, and Macadamia Nut Honey Wine. Founded in 1986, the winery produces a total of three grape wines, three fruit blends and two honey meads. In addition to the wines and teas, Volcano Winery also offers gift items from local vendors, including cookies, butters, salts, coffee and artwork.
“Among numerous similarities between our brands, we share a commitment to providing memorable experiences for Hawai‘i Island residents and visitors alike,” said Alex Wood, vice president of Volcano Winery.
