Yes, golf is expensive in Hawaii, but there are creative ways to play golf at fantastic golf courses and play at reduced costs:
1) Play at multiple Courses. For $375 versus $530, you can golf at three of the best golf courses on Kauai. You play one round at each location. This is billed as the"Kauai Golf Challenge". Each of the three courses is "connected" with a fabulous hotel so you can make a day of golfing and beaching at the same time.
2)Play at one course the first day and play subsequent days at significantly reduced rates.
3)Sign up for a "tournament". For less than $60, I hit a bucket of balls, participated in a ½ hour clinic, golfed in a nine hole scramble, golfed the remaining nine holes with the foursome from the scramble, had chances at prizes, and had lots of fun. By the way, the golf cart was included in the $60.
4)Stay at the "connected" hotel so you get reduced rates for that course.
5)Take a timeshare presentation for free golf!
6)Play in the afternoon when the rates are greatly reduced.
Information about the three courses:
The Prince Golf Course, the number one rated golf course in Hawaii according to Golf Digest, is connected with the breathtaking Sheraton Princeville Hotel. I especially enjoyed this course since it was very well maintained. The views were spectacular and the greens were very lush!
The Kauai Lagoons Kiele course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is in the top 100 Courses in America according to Golf Digest. It is connected to the The Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club. I especially enjoyed this course because of the proximity to the ocean. You are able to enjoy the breathtaking ocean views as you golfed (unless your ball finds the ocean)!
Po'ipu Bay Resort, home of the Grand Slam, is connected to the Hyatt Regency Kauai. This course has many challenging water holes. I especially liked golfing here because the scramble was lots of fun.
