Hawaii has to be one of the best places in the world to go if you are a golfer. The topography, growing conditions and balmy weather all lend to lush green fairways with over 80 courses on six islands with locations in some of the finest resorts anywhere. The Kapalua Resort Course in Maui is probably the best nationally know golf resort in Hawaii. It hosts the Kapalua Mecedes Championship played in January. There are also the Bay and Village courses and the Plantation Course.
The Wailea Resort is one of Hawaii’s hot spots for golf. There are three resort courses: the Blue Course and the Emerald and Gold courses. All three have outstanding views of the pacific and the mid-Hawaiian Islands.
The Lanai Resort offers quality and seclusion at its two courses — The Experience at Koele, designed by Ted Robinson and Greg Norman, and The Challenge at Manele, a wonderful Jack Nicklaus effort with ocean views from every hole, both rate among Hawaii’s best courses.
The Island of Kauai offers a golf resort like no other. The Princeville Bead & Breakfast is on 480 feet of fabulous fairway on the world-class Princeville Golf Course. It’s like being in the Garden of Eden and has a guest living room, dining room and lanai leading to private decks and entrances for all guest rooms.
In addition to the golfing and to make your golf vacation even more enjoyable, there are many types of hotels, shopping centers, beaches, and activities to partake in between rounds of golf.
