Bargain golf on Hawaii Island

Posted by on Feb 16, 2016 in Affordable Hawaii Vacation | 0 comments

Golf  is a major event on this island with many of the high end resorts having designer courses with pristine greens and beautiful views. A little known fact is that those of us on a budget can play golf on this island, too. We regularly go to Sea Mountain golf course at Punalu’u  Black Sand Beach. Not as spiffy as some of the other courses, but it does have a signature hole with a beautiful view of the Punalu’u bay, and you can golf for $25, cart included. This is only a 30 minute drive from the Leilani Bed and Breakfast, with some of the most fantastic coastal views on the longest scenic highway in all of Hawaii along the way. What could be a better way to spend a day on this beautiful island for the avid golfer on a budget. And yes, they do rent clubs as well. Plus you can often see the Hawaiian nene bird on the course, too!IMG_5963
