Hawaii has long been a favorite vacation destination throughout the world. The islands' lush vegetation, beautiful scenery and world-class beaches make it a natural destination choice for travelers. Vacationers can find fine dining, spectacular attractions and first-class accommodations on every island. It is these and other attractions which have increased the demand for championship golf.
One constant at all of Oahu's courses is the wind. As a general rule, the wind blows between 15 and 35 miles per hour and exaggerates any mistake. For this reason, the courses on Oahu tend to be relatively tame when the wind is down, and very menacing when it is gusty. The wind partly accounts for the fact that you will tend to find wide, forgiving fairways. The ground is harder here. The ball runs more off the tee, and doesn't stop as quickly on the greens. First-time golfers to the island should also be forewarned about putting on Bermuda greens, which are grainier than traditional Bentgrass greens and more difficult to read. The grain grows in the direction of the prevailing trade winds, which means more or less from east to west, toward the setting sun.
Ala Wai Municipal Golf Course - Ala Wai reports over 500 plays per day, or about 180,000 per year, making it one of the busiest courses in the world. With that many rounds, it is no wonder that Ala Wai is one of the fastest playing courses anywhere. This 18-hole, par-70 is set on the edge of Waikiki, with views of Diamond Head and the Koolau Mountain Range. The popularity of the Ala Wai golf course can be attributed to many factors, including its reasonable green fees, prime location, and the number of tourists just a step away in Waikiki.
