Fellow Active Rain member and Hawaii mortgage broker extraordinaire (and VA Loan Expert), Jay Oku and I treated ourselves to some great golf recently. A 3rd buddy of ours was already on the big island for business and joined us for golf after his work was complete.
Jay and I both live on Oahu and caught flights to the big island of Hawaii to enjoy 2 days of golf at Waikoloa Beach Course and Waikoloa Kings Course.....18 on Friday and 36 more on Saturday. We stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club in Waikaloa which was a spectacular setup right on the golf course. Dinner was at Roy's (Chef Roy Yamaguchi) Waikoloa and the food was spectacular as it always is. Roy's has never disappointed us in the past and is one of Tonya and my favorite restaurants. Roy's also has 2 locations on Oahu and 2 on Maui.
The weather for golfing was perfect, scenery is always beautiful and the beer was cold. Both of the courses at Waikoloa are impeccably maintained. The tradewinds make you think about your club selection throughout the course.
So now we are all back on Oahu and back at work but here are a few pictures to share................
Jay still has the phone glued to his ear even on the golf course.
They didn't have any milk so we settled for ice cold beer.
This is the nicest hole on the Beach Course.....slight dogleg left with a green right on the ocean.
Another view of this picturesque hole........
The green from this hole...... An awesome view of green grass, deep blue ocean and black lava rock.
