Like You Need An Excuse

Seriously? Like any of us need a reason to visit Hawaii. Chances are that most of us would be happy to spend a week or two (or forever) in the islands, even if there wasn't so much as a pitch and putt within 1000 nautical miles of the beach.

But hey, Hawaii is paradise, and what's paradise with out a healthy selection of immaculately maintained all-world golf courses with ocean views? As if Hawaii didn't have enough going for it, it also has some of the picturesque golf you're likely to find anywhere. There's a little something for everyone on the islands, the only real question is which courses should you play.

To build our list of the best golf destinations in Hawaii, we turned to TheGrint and to real golfers just like you.


About Our Rankings

To generate our rankings, we used data from TheGrint, a golf handicap and stat tracking service that also allows golfers to rate the courses they play. Here are the pertinent details:

  • Ranking derived from over 200,000 golf course reviews
  • Only reviews from the last 365 days are considered
  • A course must have a minimum of 30 reviews is required in order to qualify for ranking

Nearly every aspect of a golf course review is subjective and there's always going to be a difference of opinion, so healthy (and hopefully polite) debate is to be expected.
