Add Kaua’i Golf to Your Travel Bucket List

2019 Kaua'i Golf Trail Courses

When it comes to New Year’s resolutions worth keeping, a golf trip to Kaua‘i should absolutely be on the top of your bucket list. In fact, Matador Network, the travel-focused website that reaches millions around the globe, recently named Kaua‘i one of the “Top 25 places you need to travel to in 2019.”

Nicknamed the Garden Isle for its lush tropical foliage, waterfalls and ever-present Pacific Ocean scenery, Kaua‘i is perennially recognized for its beaches, award-winning courses, ideal playing weather and stunning natural beauty. Princeville Makai Golf Club, Poipu Bay Golf Course, Puakea Golf Course, The Ocean Course at Hokuala and Wailua Golf Course all exemplify the stunning views and exceptional golf found on the island.

Five of the ultra-lush island’s golf courses were just named “Best of Hawai‘i” by Golf Advisor, the leading source of golf course ratings and reviews by golfers, for golfers. In a Top 20 listing of the best courses in Hawai‘i, Golf Advisor’s community of golfers voted Princeville Makai Golf Club No. 2, Poipu Bay Golf Course No. 7, Puakea Golf Course No. 13, The Ocean Course at Hokuala No. 17, and Wailua Golf Course No. 19. Golf Advisor’s community of golfers share their first-hand experience at thousands of courses worldwide to help other golfers decide where to play their next round.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by Golf Advisor for having five of Hawai‘i’s finest courses,” said Sue Kanoho, Executive Director of the Kaua‘i Visitors Bureau. “With so many incredible golf courses and resorts located on Kaua‘i, the island is a top destination for golfers from around the world.”
