Top Hawaii Golf Courses

Kauai: A golfers paradise, Kauai offers 10 golf courses spread across 7 venues. Tee off at the famous Prince Golf Course of Princeville or the Poipu Bay Golf Course in Poipu Bay. Whichever course you choose, you won't be disappointed by the quality or the spectacular scenery.

Maui: An ideal destination offering plenty of choice, Maui boasts some of the most spectacular golf courses in the Pacific. The Wailea Golf Club offers three 18-hole golf courses and you'll also enjoy a hit at the Makena Golf & Beach Resort or Royal Ka'anapali. Wailea's Old Blue is a classic and is considered the grandfather of golf resorts.

Oahu: Unlike the other island's showy courses, Oahu offers diverse and 'real' golf including courses designed by legends such as George Fazio and Arnold Palmer as well as one of the world's busiest public golf courses. A dream destination for dedicated golf enthusiasts.

Big Island: The biggest and sometimes considered the best, this island is home to some amazing golf courses including some of the most exciting beach courses you'll play. There is plenty to choose from including the Hualalai Golf Club course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and the Jack Nicklaus designed course at the Mauna Kea Golf Course.

Lanai: Although this island doesn't boast the same choice of courses as the others, Lanai does offer fantastic quality in the two 18-hole championship courses it is home to. Entertain yourself with Koele's The Experience and Manele's The Challenge. The names say it all really.

Molokai: Not exactly a haven for dedicated golf enthusiasts, Molokai is ideal for the whole family but allows the golfing inclined to still enjoy a hit at the 9-hole course of the Ironwood Hills Golf Club in Kaulapuu. The island is exceptionally beautiful, so if you want to score points with the family as well as on the course, this is a great island to visit.
