The Hawaiian Islands


Kauai is an island in the Central Pacific, part of the Hawaiian archipelago. It is known as 'the Garden Isle', thanks to the tropical rainforest covering much of its surface. The dramatic cliffs and pinnacles of its Na Pali Coast have served as a backdrop for major Hollywood films, while 10-mile-long Waimea Canyon and the Nounou Trails traversing the Sleeping Giant mountain ridge are hiking destinations.

The beaches are good- everyone should visit Hanalei Bay, and the waterfalls are pretty special. 

Waipoo Falls in the Waimea Canyon cascades 800 feet!

One activity that is non negotiable on any visit to Kauai is the helicopter rides over the island. They take in the waterfalls, the dramatic Na Pali coastline, and the Waimea Canyon. It is without doubt the most dramatic and memorable chopper trip in Hawaii.


And then there is the golf!

 Kauai is perhaps our favourite golfing destination in  the Hawaiian islands with a combination of high quality golf courses in close proximity, a variety of accommodation and dining options to suit every budget, world class sightseeing, and outdoor activities galore...

And Kauai is less crowded than the other islands

The Travelling Golfer can tailor a golf trip to suit your group, making recommendations on accommodation and dining arrangements to meet particular budgets, and time constraints.

A typical 5 day package would include golf at :

Puakea, Poipu Bay, Princeville Makai, and the Ocean Course at Hoku'ala (depending on time and budget it may also be possible to play The Club at Kukui'ula)

Princeville Maka- hole 14

Puakea GC- hole 6

THe Ocean Course at Hokuala- hole 13



You can combine this with a sightseeing day in which we would definitely include a helicopter ride over the island, and a visit to Hanalei Bay.


We love Kauai, and we would love to tailor a trip to Kauai for you!
