Royal Hawaiian Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1994

Royal Hawaiian Golf Club is home to a well-rated and pleasantly testing golf course. Legendary designer Pete Dye and his son Perry have integrated their layout into tumbling terrain, which is framed by ancient jungle at the foot of the Ko'olau Mountains in Oahu. The back-nine builds to an exciting finish as it winds through leafy rainforest corridors. Risk-reward opportunities are presented at holes like the short par-four 15th and good length par-3 16th.

With its lush tropical surroundings and few signs of civilization, locals have been known to refer to Royal Hawaiian as Jurassic Park. Plenty of golfing challenge, the well-crafted design and usually good upkeep also contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

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.
