Hawaii Golf Courses - Kauai Golf Courses
What's Really Up at Kauai's Golf Courses?
Over most of the past decade, Kauai's golf assets have struggled for market share, while they continued to raise prices in the face of a loss of business and the recessionary economy.
Compounding the economic woes, were the closures of so many resort holes, who for a variety of reasons were closed pretty much concurrently. At one point, there were actually 45 resort holes out of commission at the same time, much to the chagrin of many golf visitors, who were often left with few golf options and commensurate high prices.
In an amazing turn of events in 2009, Kauai's outstanding municipal course was so emboldened by the goings on around them that the county council raised visitor pricing as much as 88% (to a high of $88 to ride on a weekend and $60 walking on a weekday). After just a year and a radical deterioration of visitor rounds (necessary to sustain the less than $10 it generally costs residents to play), the county lowered the visitor rates for walking to $48 weekdays and $60 weekends.
Currently, all but nine resort holes are up and running. The nine shuttered holes are closed permanently.
The entire unfortunate circumstances surrounding golf on Kauai for much of the past decade is more than mitigated by the outstanding golf you can find on other islands. So, here is our best advice...
The Garden Island is a lovely destination with much other to do than striking the dimpled sphere. If you really want to see Kauai, spend less time there (from 3-5 days will be more than enough) and play your golf on The Big Island, Maui and/or Oahu.
