For the Big Island golfers, there is a very charming course in Kapaau, which is next to Hawi in North Kohala. It is $10 to play all day if you have your own clubs, and on a clear day you will have an ocean view of Maui.

I would suggest that everyone spend a day or two exploring this area, and its great rural beauty and fascinating history.

From the link below:
Kamehameha Park Golf Learning Center (345-4393).

"John Mauro, Jr. was the Director of Golf at Waikaloa Beach Resort for 12 years before he conceived of a new dream. He has transformed a former driving range in Kapa`au into the Kamehameha Park Golf Learning Center. Mauro ran the backhoe and bulldozer himself, and now stands proud over his creation.

The course, which consists of five par threes and one par four**(s&r par 4), is largely geared toward kids interested in the game, but Mauro points out that the existing course record is one over par, so scoring well requires skill. Mauro loans youngsters a set of clubs, which are kept on the premises and logged by their bag number.

Greens fees for keiki (children) are $3.15 per round, but kids can play free all day on Mondays, as well as for an hour after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Mauro says his goal is to field a winning golf team for the high school within three years. "
