Hawaii Golf Resorts

There's no golf escape quite like the Hawaiian islands. No matter which island you choose, there's an excellent golf resort to call your home base. The largest island is Hawaii Island, aka the Big Island, but the vast majority of resorts are found on the drier, sunnier Kona-Kohala Coast. Oahu is the most populated island and has a handful of resorts near Honolulu and along the rugged North Shore. Maui may be the most popular destination among the islands in Hawaii thanks to the fantastic golf developments in Wailea, Kapalua and Ka'anapali. Those who want a quieter escape can head to Kauai, the Garden Isle. From Poipu Bay to Princeville, each golf resort features a very different type of golf course and resort grounds. Lastly, Lanai is the "Pineapple Island" and features a secluded Four Seasons and Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course that many argue is the state's finest.

So where should your group go? You can't really go wrong, but we hope these resort guides help steer you towards your ideal island landing spot.
