Oahu offers challenging and beautiful golf courses from the famous North Shore to the rainforests on the windward side. At last count, Oahu had 37 golf courses. Don't let that number mislead you because eight of them are for military personnel only and nine are private clubs. There are another six courses, like the Ala Wai Golf Course, that are so busy it's almost impossible to get on. That narrows the field to about 16 public and resort courses to choose from.

Oahu's newest course is the highly touted Coral Creek Golf Course on the Ewa Plain in the southwestern portion of the island. Designed by Honolulu-based golf course architect Robin Nelson, the 18-hole, 6,808-yard, Par 72 course is designed to expose coral rock formations in cliff-like structures and will provide a great test for golfers of all skill levels.

Luana Hills Country Club, built in 1993, is nestled deep in the Maunawili Valley on the Windward side of the island. The 18-hole, Par 72 course was designed by Pete Dye and features natural flowing streams, lush ravines and great mountain vistas. There is a fully stocked golf shop, a restaurant and lounge. Ask about the Country Club's golf and transportation package, which includes green fees with cart and round-trip transportation from Waikiki.

Keep in mind that Windward and Leeward gof courses play differently because of the prevailing winds. Many Oahu courses offer twilight rates if you're willing to tee off in the afternoon, usually between 1 and 3 p.m.
