Posted By: GoGolfKauai.com
Exciting news for Kauai golf. Golfweek has released its "2018 Best Courses You Can Play in Hawai'i," naming Princeville Makai, Poipu Bay, the Ocean Course at Hōkūala and Wailua Golf Course to the top 15 of the best-in-Hawaii list.
Princeville Makai and Poipu Bay are among the top 10 courses to play in the state of Hawai'i. The Ocean Course at Hōkūala, a signature amenity of Timbers Kauai, solidified its position on the list at No. 11. In addition, Wailua proudly made its debut on the list at No.14, a deserved distinction for the ocean-side municipal course that has played host to three USGA Amateur Public Links Championships.
"Kauaï'i is thrilled to have four properties listed among the top 15 courses in golf-rich Hawai'i," says Sue Kanoho, Executive Director of the Kauai'i Visitors Bureau. "And not to be overlooked, Puakea is a beautiful design with excellent conditioning. Princeville has recovered quickly from mid-April's flooding, proving the resilience of our residents and professional golf staffs. We invite locals and visitors alike to experience our award-winning designs. Learn more at gogolfkauai.com."
Golfweek raters assess thousands of courses annually to rank them in several categories. The individual scores are aggregated, then the total scores determine the order of rank in numerous "best-of" lists that Golfweek publishes each year.
Raters from multiple media outlets have confirmed what golfers who love the "Garden Isle" have long known - that Kauai is a special place with unique qualities, an amazing oasis where playing the game is an unforgettable experience, and after-golf activities are equally astounding.
