Kailua-Kona, Hawaii


GDA has had the privilege of working with Lyle Anderson Companies on many of their projects, notably: Desert Highlands, Desert Mountain, Las Campanas and Hokulia on the Big Island of Hawaii.


Hokulia was initially envisioned by Lyle Anderson as an exceptional golf course and residential development project that would be unparalleled in the Hawaiian Islands.


GDA provided overall master planning services for the property since it was first acquired and worked closely with Jack Nicklaus, the golf course architect, to effectively integrate the residential development areas with desired golf course routing and design strategy.  Although there have been many revisions and refinements to the original plans since 1985, coupled with unfortunate delays in implementing and completing final phases of the project, Hokulia remains true to the early vision and provides a wonderful golf experience for those fortunate enough to live there and their guests.




"There is no other property as well-suited for golf in all the Hawaiian Islands. Beautiful natural land. Dramatic ocean vistas. Warm, dry, year-round weather.
And no wind - only soft ocean breezes."
