For most of my buddies, the annual golfing getaway means heading out for a week at Myrtle Beach. They stay in the same hotel, play the same courses and eat at the same restaurants year after year after year. But there are plenty of other warm weather options. They might be a bit more expensive, but from the horror stories I’ve heard about Myrtle Beach trips, the extra expense might be worth it.
An Hawaii golf trip is high on my list of prospects. I’d take Mrs. GolfBlogger, of couse, and she could happily sit on the beach with a book while I hack my way around Hawaii golf courses like Kapalua, Wailea, Makena and Royal Kaanapali. My research tells me that one of the best values is with Pukalani, which is located on the slopes of a volcano.
I’d reserve the nights, of course, for luaus and the like.
The Golf Channel has a site that lists various courses, lets you book Hawaii tee times, and look for packages.
Hmm. This might even make a good trip for our upcoming (next year) 20th Wedding Anniversary. But then I’d have to curtail the golf and do more touristy things.
