Ala Wai Golf Course located near Waikiki on Oahu.

Ala Wai, 18 hole par 70 course is a fast playing golf course situated just outside of Waikiki. It might also hold the title of the most popular course in the world because of its lower than normal green fees, and its excellent view of Diamond Head and the Koolau Mountain Range.

Tens of thousands of tourists in Waikiki are just a few minutes away and many of them want to take advantage of this beautiful course. Get a tee-time as far in advance as possible. The course allows walk-ons using a waiting list but it can be long.

The Ala Wai Golf Course opened in 1931, as the first municipal course on Oahu and the first in the Islands. The original Ala Wai course got its most recent reworking in 1989, when seven holes of the front nine were redesigned and realigned by Nelson & Wright. Do not be deceived by the flat layout, with its ponds and daily wind it can be challenging - particularly for the average amateur golfer.

Water hazards come into play on almost every hole. Bunkers are spread throughout the course and also prove to be a consistent obstacle.

Some fairways have dogleg configurations, but most of them play straight and are lined with mature trees in between which your ball may be lost forever. Several greens are undulating and fast. Carts are mandatory.

In addition to the driving range, West Loch has practice greens, a pro shop, and a restaurant.

The par-72, 6,494-yard course, designed by Willard G. Wilkinson and built in 1953, makes use of the natural terrain (hills and valleys make up the majority of the 250 acres).

The course does not have man-made traps, but a small stream meanders through it. If you're off line on the 9th, you'll get to know the stream quite well. The challenge here is the weather -- whipping winds and frequent rainsqualls. Because of the potential for rain, you might want to pay for 9 holes, and then assess the weather before signing up for the back 9.

The views include Kaneohe Bay, the towns of Kailua and Kaneohe, and the verdant cliffs of the Koolau Mountains. Facilities include practice greens, club rental, locker rooms, and a restaurant.

Hawaii Country Club located in Oahu

Hawaii Country Club was opened in 1958. As the name "Hawaii Country Club" suggests, it is the oldest public course on the island of Oahu. Despite the formal sound of its name, Hawaii Country Club is not a members only private club. This 18-hole par-72 course in Kunia is open to the public every day. Hawaii Country Club is a short, par-72 layout of only 5,664 yards from the regular or men's tees. But the design is hilly and quite tricky, with ravines (where Army troops trained during World War I) and tight fairways adding to the challenge.

The golfer also is confronted with more than 200 mature monkeypod trees, as well as coconut palms and other varieties, onjust about every fairway.

The Hawaii Country Club features a clubhouse with a restaurant and cocktail lounge, a pro shop and lockers. There is a practice putting green and a driving range. The moderate green fees (less expensive for Hawaii residents, especially on weekdays) include powered golf carts. Tee times are required, but golf shoes are not.

This is a unique course that is fun to play, yet offers a challenge to any golfer. About a 30-minute drive from Honolulu, a relaxing round of golf here certainly is a change of pace from fast play on the busy municipal courses. Located in central Oahu, this course offers panoramic views of Pearl Harbor, the Honolulu skyline, Diamond Head, and both the Koolau and Waianae mountain ranges. Today, tee times on the municipals are at a premium, and golf-hungry tourists are more than willing to drive a few miles in order to play.

The twin peaked land formation of the neighboring Mount Olomana has been described as the "powerful shoulders" of a giant who possessed supernatural powers that enabled him to perform great deeds.

Mere mortals who play at Olomana today have been inspired to perform "great deeds" of their own with the great scores they shoot. Above all, the golf course offers a challenge of skills and yet a fun experience for all levels of players.
