Big Island Golf Instruction

academy1

Who amongst us hasn’t had the burning desire to improve their golf game?  Well, unless you’re shooting par golf, I guess by definition that means you should!  Remember now, “drive for show, putt for dough,” or so the folks used to tell me who tried to get me “into” golf.  (Believe it or not, I …

Hilo Municipal Golf Course

770

A low-key municipal course popular with local players and regulars, Hilo Municipal sports some wonderful views of Hilo Bay. The layout is mostly flat with its greens slightly elevated from the fairways, a style of design that asks a bit more precision on your approach shot, but also allows players to run the ball up along the ground. There are no bunkers on the course, either, which makes it very…

Naniloa Volcanoes Golf Club

781

This heavily-wooded course offers nine holes and only 2,800-odd yards, but with a par of 35, most of the holes are regulation length. A lake comes into play on holes 2 and 5, and the tree-lined fairways require players to drive the ball straight off the tee. Though short, it’s a course that can offer some challenge and certainly a load of fun. Guests of the Naniloa Volcanoes…

Sea Mountain Golf Course

775

This is a lovely 18-hole layout, with many flowering trees and some great ocean views. Positioning shots is important to avoid being behind the mature and overhanging trees. But at just around 6,500 yards all the way back, better players should have a good day. Like Volcano, Sea Mountain is far from the beaten path, roughly a 90-minute drive from Kona and just…
