Golf fans love kauais championship golf courses

05a74f3c1af90b303731529229b63129e875098e Kauai offers the golf fanatic a variety of choices from the north shore to the south.  Designed by some of the most prominent golf course architects such as Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones Jr.,  you’ll find yourself in the midst of championship courses that boast panoramic ocean or majestic mountain views. When you’re staying at the Hanalei Colony Resort, just a short drive takes you to two top-ranked courses. There's the recently renovated Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Makai Course.  Or, there’s the Prince Course, which is currently under renovation and scheduled to reopen in March 2012. On the east side, enjoy the longest stretch of oceanfront golf holes at the Kauai Lagoons course or the majestic backdrop of the Ha’upu Mountain Range at the Robin Nelson-designed Puakea Golf Course. If your preference is for the south side of Kauai, there’s the Kiahuna Golf Club (another Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design) in Poipu or drive a little further to Kalaheo for the 9-hole Kukuiolono Golf Course. And, for those who don’t want to lug your clubs on the airplane (or pay the extra baggage fee), you now have the option to rent them here on Kauai for the length of your stay. Kauai Golf Club Rentals is offering an introductory 5-day special.  Until March 31, 2012, you can rent a set of clubs for only $99.00, instead of their standard $115 rate. They offer Callaway Golf Equipment such as Diablo Octane Woods, RAZR X Hybrids and Irons, and Odyssey White Ice Putters. And, they deliver the clubs to your door. How cool is that?
