Here’s your chance to play one of the best courses in Hawaii. Reopened in 2012 after a $5-million renovation, this Robert Trent Jones, Jr.–designed devil of a course sits on 390 acres molded to create ocean views from every hole. Some holes have a waterfall backdrop to the greens, others shoot into the hillside, and the famous par-4 12th hole has a long tee shot off a cliff to a narrow, jungle-lined fairway 100 feet below. This is the most challenging course on Kauai; accuracy is key here, or your ball will land in lushly vegetated canyons and other tropical greenery. You can always console yourself later at the clubhouse’s Tavern at Princeville, created by celebrated chef Roy Yamaguchi. The practice facility’s Mini Prince Par 3 Course, a 6-hole, 424-yard course with larger putting cups (open daily 4pm), makes for a unique, inexpensive family outing before dinner. Other facilities include a clubhouse, locker rooms, golf shop, and club rentals.
