PGA Golf Hawaii: the Plantation Course at Kapalua, Maui and Waialae CC Honolulu, Oahu
The beginning of the 2008 PGA golf season is approaching within the next week when the Mercedes Benz Championship is played at the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Maui. The tournament will be held January 4-7 2008.
The following week, the PGA Tour moves over to Oahu where they will play the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club January 11-14, 2008. History was made at last years Sony Open when amateur Tadd Fujikawa made the cut in the professional event.
Living in Hawaii and playing golf in Hawaii is a daily treat. Whether you are actually golfing or just along in the golf cart for the ride, Hawaii golf courses boast some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
I recently took a short golf vacation for a few days with my son and went over to the island of Kauai (20 minute flight from Oahu) where we played 2 rounds of golf at Poipu Bay Golf Course which was the previous home to PGA Tours Grand Slam of Golf. We also snuck in a 3rd round at Puakea Golf Course which is a very nice public course.
A few photos of Poipu Bay Golf Course.......I don't need to put descriptions as the pictures speak for themselves.
