|Kauai THE "GARDEN ISLAND"|
|Princeville Golf Course (Prince Course)|
7,309 Yards, Par 72 | Architect: Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Greens Fees: $85-$175 | (800) 826-4400 | www.princeville.com
The Prince Course is one of the world’s hardest tests. Carved out of some of the most rugged terrain on Kauai’s coast, it challenges golfers right from the opening hole. Players are frequently forced to lay up short of wide ravines on their drives and play long irons or fairway woods into well-guarded greens.
| Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course|
6,959 Yards, Par 72 | Architect: Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Greens Fees: $60-$185 | (800) 858-6300 | www.poipubaygolf.com
When you reach 15, you head home—and downwind. Elevated high above the ocean with waves crashing below and kitesurfers launching themselves into the stratosphere, your drives will double in length.
|Puakea Golf Course|
6,954 Yards, Par 72 | Architect: Robin Nelson
Greens Fees: $25-$125 | (866) 773-5554 | www.puakeagolf.com
AOL founder and Hawaii native Steve Case earns kudos for turning an incomplete 10-hole course into one of Kauai’s finest experiences. The inland Puakea has the feel of a more traditional course, with views of the mountains and jungle available at every turn.
