Oahu offers challenging
and beautiful golf courses
Oahu offers challenging and beautiful golf courses from the famous North Shore to the rainforests on the windward side.
Keep in mind that Windward and Leeward golf courses play differently because of the prevailing winds. It might be beautiful and sunny on the Leeward side while raining on the windward side. If playing the windward side, we always recommend a later start time to let courses dry out a bit as they usually get night rains.
The main courses we like to recommend are Ko'olau, the most beautiful course to play, making you feel you are playing in Jurassic Park (bring a lot of balls), Kapolei Golf Course and Waikele Golf Course. The closest one to Waikiki is Ala Wai Golf Course, considered to be the busiest golf course in America, so would not recommend that one.
As a money-saving tip, many Oahu courses offer twilight rates if you're willing to tee off in the afternoon, usually between 1 and 3 p.m.
