Friday, February 2, 2007, 07:26 PM - HawaiiKauai offers some of the best golf courses in Hawaii and maybe the world. These golf courses are among the most challenging courses in the world. Apart from several outstanding resort courses, simple golf courses are also available that attract golfers from around the world. Probably it is the inspiring ocean view or spectacular mountain backdrop of these golf courses that make them stand apart from the rest.
Most golfers are aware that Kauai is home to some of the finest golf courses in the world. Kauai boasts of three of the top five golf courses in the State of Hawaii with over 153 holes spread out among eight courses. Golfers can tee off from any of the four courses designed by none other than Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Two other courses are designed by the equally famous Jack Nicklaus.
Golf on Kauai immediately brings to mind three celebrated resorts: Poipu Bay, Kauai Lagoons, and Princeville. Waialua Municipal Golf Course is a par-72 layout that plays to 7,020 yards. Its front side begins with two holes bordering the ocean and is flat in most areas dotted with few water hazards. Waialua hosted the 1996 USGA Public Links Championship and possesses one of the most picturesque "par threes" in the nation.
Kiahuna Golf Club is located in the heart of always-sunny Poipu. It is framed with the remnants of an ancient Hawaiian village. Twenty-seven carefully preserved archaeological sites can be seen here. This par-70 golf course was built by Robert Trent Jones Jr. Kiahuna. It is richly decorated with colorful bougainvillea and tropical shrubs.
The famed Kauai Golf Challenge is a unique promotional attraction that allows visitors to experience one round each at the best golf resorts of the island. This tour includes the Kauai Lagoons, the Poipu Bay Golf course, and the Princeville Resort.
