As you probably already have heard, Hawaii has a great deal of public and private golf courses. Some are city owned, while others are championship level courses. Prices greatly vary from course to course. Because of how nice the Hawaii golf courses are, golf is one of the top Hawaii attractions. If you're a golfer and are heading to Hawaii, no matter what your level of play is, you'll want to play a round or two at a Hawaii golf course. In this article, we'll be covering the top Hawaii golf attractions.
The Four Top Hawaiian Golf Attractions
One of the best things about Hawaiian golf courses is that there is such a great variety of courses to choose from. These vary in price and quality, so no matter what type of golfer you are, you should be able to find a course that is ideal to golf at. Check out the courses below which are arranged in terms of green fees and ratings.
Ala Wai Golf Course
Located in Honolulu, the Ala Wai is an 18-hole public golf course with very reasonable green fees. Built in 1921, this course is 6208 yards long and is on a flat plain. A canal comes into play on three holes. While the course conditions aren't as nice as those found at other Hawaiian courses, this is still a terrific course. It is also a very busy course, so you'll want to book tee times well in advance.
Rating: 2 stars
Bay View Golf Park
The Bay View Golf Park, much like the Ala Wai, is a very affordable place to golf at. It is located in Kaneohe, Oahu and features 9 holes of golf. Unlike many other courses, it is not a full par 36 course. Instead, the Bay is a par 29 course with only 2 par 4s and no par 5s. Because it is a shorter course, this would be an excellent place to take your younger golfer(s). This is one of the top Hawaii attractions, so you'll want to make sure you get that tee time in advance.

Grove Farm Golf Course
Affordable and of a high quality, the Grove Farm is an excellent choice for those golfers who want a challenge but don't want to pay an arm and a leg for the green fees. This course, located in Lihue, Kauai, features 18 holes of championship level golf. The terrain is fairly even and the course is built around deep ravines and streams. The Grove Farm also offers a great view of the Kauai Island and has consistently been voted one of the top 10 golf courses in all of Hawaii.
Rating: 4 stars
Kona Country Club
The Kona Country Club features 36 holes of championship level golf. There are two 18-hole courses here. One is known as the Ocean course and is right beside the sea, while the other is known as the Ali'i Mountain Course built on inland hillside. While the two courses aren't very much alike, they do have one thing in common: lots of water hazards. The greens and fairways on both courses are also fairly wide. The Kona Country Club is a top notch course and is well worth the hundreds of dollars you'll pay in green fees to golf there. It is by far one of the top Hawaii attractions.
