Which Course on Kauai?

Well I’ve gone over there a few times sometimes for golf, sometimes to paddle, and here’s my thoughts. 

Poipu is really a lot of fun, beautiful course but only have played it once. What use to be Kauai Lagoons is now Hokuala and I really enjoy that course. There are some fun carries plus there a few beautiful holes heading to the harbor. It’s getting better I believe too. 

But when I go I always play the Makai Course in Princeville. I think the Prince course has gone private or was under construction when I was there last July but that course is beautiful. Every hole is a postcard view. But the Makai course also has plenty of fun holes and beautiful views. It’s just a drive up there to Princeville. I either stay up there or down at the Hyatt for Poipu, okay I guess I’ve played there twice, it is a very nice course. 

Here’s some fotos from Poipu

and a few more from what is now Hokuala, it’s right there close to town.

From vacation pics from friends lately, I'd pick whichever course is on the highest piece of ground you can find.

Found this thread again and we are finally going to Kauai.  Anyone have any “recent” advice.  I’ve narrowed down to these 3 courses…..

  • iacas changed the title to Which Course on Kauai?

Seeing that Hokuala is now two courses I may have to get over there again, I loved that course back I think it was Kauai Lagoons, it lost some of its character when it changed but still find many holes a pleasure. Last time over my wife surprised me with a week of golf but what was crazy was our Hawaiian air flight came from the mainland and was continuing on to Kauai so it was a wide body complete with the lie flat seats up front so for once on an inter island I got to go flat take a 5 min nap. Now that Kauai is a two flight jump for me I’ll go over a bit less.

Have a great trip!

will

A couple of years ago I played Wailua. I was supposed to play somewhere else and our reservation was screwed up. They took us as soon we got there. Really nice course. Saw and article recently about 30 best munis and there it was. It deserved to be there. I’ll be in Kauai in February and I’ll definitely will go there again and maybe Princeville.

    • I found this video interesting from the standpoint of how they approach just playing the fade from game management. Even if they hit, what you would call a slice, they rather see that happen than have anything go left.  Also, it is interesting that they both bow their wrist at the top, but both play a fade. I'd think that most would say they would draw or hook the ball with the clubface shut at the top.  In terms of what they think about for the shot, it is hitting a start line because they know it is going to curve from right to left. I wonder how many amateurs think about starting the ball on a line. 
    • 7:49am 10th Tee -  Tyrrell Hatton, Bryson DeChambeau, Max Homa. Nice to see the biggest hitter on the USPGA tour, back. Good luck Bryson.  
    • Yes, you can move clubs into the "unassigned" bin, but it won't let you delete a club that has been used, so everything added to the "my bag" stays there. The system used to let you delete a club but would give a disclaimer message saying something like deleting this club will also delete all of the data associated with it. What is annoying about this is that in post-round editing, all of the clubs, assigned or not come up in editor. So if a shot was registered with the wrong club, it's not intuitive to pick from the list which is color coded rather than providing a description. This is rare - it would happen in cases where you put a new club in the bag but didn't update the "my bag" section so shots were registered on the old club. Or possibly a scenario where you took some practice swings with a 8-iron and it registered a shot, but then you actually hit the shot with a 9-iron. For example, below, this is what I see if I wanted to change the driver I used for this tee shot:
    • I'm definitely taking relief from something that only exists in that location to mark off yardage
    • That is the course we staid on when we did our golf trip to Orlando like 8 years ago. I really like that course. Fair, but you really have to figure out how to play it due to the amount of bunkers on the course.
