Makai Golf Course

On our first night in Princeville we met another traveler who mentioned a tour of the Makai Golf Course & the spectacular views. We don’t golf, but the way he talked up the views had us sold. We called the course & took the sunset tour the following night. Other than our helicopter tour, it had the best scenery of the entire trip. You can see Queen’s Bath from a safe location. The view of Hanalei Bay, Puff & Bali Hai were also great. They let you drive at full speed through their bamboo forest. Everyone was giggling and having a really nice time. It cost $60 per cart (Max 2 per cart). It was not on our must-see list before we left, but if I had friends that were going to Kauai I would tell them it is a must do. Plus, you can enjoy a drink in their lounge while you wait for the tour to start. We even had a celebrity sighting while we were enjoying drinks.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to thank you so much for writing the terrific reveal travel guides. My husband and I just returned from a 2-week vacation to Hawaii. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. We used your guides on all four of the islands that we visited, Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. They seemed to be written just for our travel style. Just us and a rental car. No tour groups for us! We have done and seen things only possible with the insight of your books. One night at dinner we were talking to the waiter who, was native Hawaiian. He had asked what we had done that day. We went through a litany of sights and experiences (one being swimming in a fresh water cave). He got a stunned look on his face and then gave me the greatest compliment. Though I don’t think he knew it was a compliment. He said, “Wow, you are more local than I am!” That was so fantastic to hear. I wanted to share that with you since your books helped us be “locals.” Thank you again so much for your fabulous books.”
