The Golfing Paradise that is Hawaii

Since the 1920s, golfers have been making the journey to play the challenging, fun and, of course, incredibly scenic Hawaii golf courses.

Seven of the islands have layouts allowing golfers a wide variety of choices from high-end resorts and daily fee courses to more affordable 18- and nine-hole ones. Even the island of Lanai has two stellar layouts.

Hawaii is also a veritable who's who of modern architects as Robert Trent Jones, Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Tom Weiskopf and Greg Norman all have designs there.

At least four of the layouts are familiar to fans of professional golf. The Plantation Course at Kapalua, Kapalua and Waialae Country Club are PGA Tour venues while Royal Kaanapali Golf Course Hualalai Golf Course host Champions Tour events.

With over 50 courses, getting Hawaii tee times is easier than ever.
