Kiele Course at Kauai Lagoons Resort located in Lihue on Kauai

This resort, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Gold Medal Resorts," features two regulation eighteen hole courses. The Kiele Course is very demanding and requires several shots over ravines. The Lagoons Course is a bit easier and much more forgiving off the tee.

Carts are mandatory on the Kiele Course, while golfers may walk the Lagoon Course at designated times. It's said that when Jack Nicklaus created the Kiele Course, the terrain lent itself so well to his vision that he made but a single change to his original design. So it's no surprise that this incredible 7,070-yard resort course is hailed as one of the finest golf gems in the Pacific.

The Kiele has a sense of style uniquely its own. Fairways weave along imposing ocean cliffs, over promontories high above Nawiliwili Harbor, and among some 40-acres of fresh water lagoons. Lush groves of exotic foliage thrive amongst the holes. A solitary rotunda sits on the water off the 17th tee: an exquisite wedding chapel.

Every hole is marked by a white marble statue of an animal or mystical being: Happy Buddha, Elephant, Swan, Dragon, and of course, The Golden Bear, in tribute to the master golfer who master-minded the course.

Prince Course located in Princeville on Kauai

The Prince Course at Princeville is part of the Princeville Resort located on the island of Kauai. The course was designed with the Scottish links-style in mind. The deep ocean blues, hotel amenities, and great Hawaiian vistas not only make for a great game of golf, but also an incredible trip.

This resort is more than just another vacation spot. There are five sets of tees on every hole, and from each one you can see the ocean. The resort was named to GOLF MAGAZINE's 2002 list of "Gold Medal Resorts." In addition GOLF MAGAZINE ranked the Ocean Course 20th in its "Top 100 You Can Play in the U.S."

This is one of the most difficult course designs in the state. It features many deep ravines and plenty of hills. The undulating greens vary in shape and size. This is one of the few double-dogleg par fours you will see: downhill off the tee and downhill to the green, but with a serpentine stream lined with tropical undergrowth dictating an all-carry approach to the green, or a bail-out pitch to the fairway.
