Hi everybody, I have just moved to Hilo,Hi.
Was previously in Houston, where I played twice per week for between 30-60bucks a game. Never over 100bucks. Tx has so many options.
Have been transferred to Hilo. From my experience so far golf in Hawaii is rubbish for normal folk.
One muni is the town. Complete crap. 6,200 yards of bunkerless time wasting.
Closest ok course is Hamakua. Around 40miles north. 20bucks all you can play. The course really reflects its green fee.
Closest decent course is around 70 miles NE, Makani Golf. Starting at $100 for a course that would cost $30 in TX. They do a Hawaii Resident rate on Tue and Thu for $49.
I am only going to be here for between 6 to 12 months living in company provided and paid accommodation so doubtful I will ever have proof that I am a "resident".
I thought Hawaii was supposed to be a place for golf. So far its way over my price range and I will go crazy if I cant get out each week.
Anybody played here and have any ideas or suggestions?
