Played as the Hawaiian Open. Second-placed Paul Runyan (USA) and Hawaiian native Guinea Kop (USA) finished in second place behind Sarazen (USA). [Waialae CC, Honolulu, Hawaii]. Note: After its well-publicised first two years in 1928/29, the Hawaiian Open settled down to become a local, relatively low money event from 1930 thru' 1964. It was typically played at Waialae CC, and occasionally attracted a few top professionals from the PGA Tour. Most famously during this period, Gene Sarazen won it in 1934. Local amateur Arthur Armstrong, from Palolo, Honolulu, was the most prolific winner of the title (1939, '40, '43, '45, '46).

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
