On Oahu, there are many things to see and do away from the golf course. So, HawaiiGolfDeals builds our Oahu golf vacation packages with a little less golf than on the outer islands (Big Island and Maui).
“The Gathering Place,” as Oahu is also known, is home to Honolulu, Waikiki, Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, Polynesian Cultural Center, Hanauma Bay, the “Banzai Pipeline” and the big waves of the North Shore, as well as almost 955,000 of Hawaii’s 1.45 million residents. Ninety-five percent of Oahu’s lodging is in or around Waikiki, so prepare to drive 25-35 minutes to our recommended golf courses.
Oahu’s golf courses are numerous with five private clubs, a municipal golf system (six courses) and military golf system (six courses) that are quite exemplary. In fact, if you are active or retired military (or with certain Federal government credentials) and love golf, there is not a better place to visit or anything better than HawaiiGolfDeals’ Oahu golf vacation packages.
We feature three terrific Oahu golf experiences on the leeward side of the island: Oahu’s only 27-hole layout—the Hawaii Prince Golf Club, designed by Arnold Palmer and the late Ed Seay; and two Robin Nelson designs — the emerald green hues of the paspalum turf at the Coral Creek Golf Course, and vistas aplenty, found only at Royal Kunia Country Club.
We can also recommend a quality military layouts that allow outside play by showing up or standing by. On weekdays, you may make same-day reservations. Leilehua Golf Course in central Oahu is a wonderful parkland course with cooler temperatures and stands of mature trees everywhere. It is also eminently walkable and delivers profound value.
The remaining golf offerings are numerous, but rather pricey, with visitor green fees of $130 to about $199. That probably explains why many of these courses sell far less than 10% of their tee times to visitors. Less than a handful get close to 35% visitor rounds, so it is remarkable that finding real value is as difficult as it is.
WHAT TWO DECADES OF EXPERIENCE TELLS US ABOUT OAHU GOLF VACATION PACKAGES
After more than 20 years of Oahu golf vacation packages and delivering golfers to Waikiki (and a handful of other Oahu locations), HawaiiGolfDeals has tried to read and respond to the pulse of thousands of those who we have booked. It seems that golfers really enjoy the Waikiki Gateway, which unfolds as soon as you pass over the bridge that spans the Ala Wai canal along Ala Moana Boulevard as you travel from the airport and past the Ala Moana Shopping Center.
What makes the Gateway area so nice is that you can take a 12-minute walk into central Waikiki or a 3-minute walk to Ala Moana. Even the Ward Center shopping, dining and entertainment options are an easy walk. Best of all, is the neat setting over the Waikiki Yacht Harbor and the ease of getting in and out of the area without having to get caught in the heart of Waikiki on both sides of your golf or sight-seeing experiences.
Therefore, keeping in mind that we can book virtually any lodging property in Hawaii, Oahu and Waikiki, we have made sensational deals for you at the Ala Moana Hotel, the only hotel just outside the Waikiki Gateway, and the Waikiki Parc Hotel, which is very close by just into Waikiki proper. Either will make your Oahu golf vacation package adventure engagingly memorable.
PREMIUM HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS WITH REAL VALUE
The WAIKIKI PARC HOTEL is known for its urban-chic premium accommodations and always top-notch service. We like the Parc for a few reasons not generally known to the general public. When HawaiiGolfDeals books you at the Waikiki Parc, you receive recently renovated and refurbished high quality accommodations, complimentary self-parking in their in-house parking structure and no resort fees whatsoever.
The views are also outstanding, whether Mountain or Ocean, and you’ll be delighted with the access in and out of Waikiki via the Waikiki Gateway. Just a three-minute walk into the heart of Waikiki, less than 10 minutes to the Ala Moana Shopping Center, and with scores of restaurants within five minutes. The beach is right across the street.
Just a hundred feet from the famous “beachwalk” shopping and dining block, the Waikiki Parc is home to Nobu Restaurant and is located across the street from the jointly-owned beachfront hotel known as The Halekulani, with its very high-end accommodations, restaurants and beachfront.
The Parc is one of the real hidden gems that HawaiiGolfDeals has been touting for over two decades. It never disappoints and always delivers the goods, especially for golfers, who have vehicles and appreciate complimentary parking. And we always have exclusive Oahu golf vacation packages at the Waikiki Parc.
In addition to being able to book you anywhere on Oahu or in Waikiki (or anywhere in Hawaii, for that matter), we highly recommend and book …
The ALA MOANA HOTEL delivers quite a few benefits for golfers. First and foremost, there is ample parking at a very reasonable price ($20 daily for self-parking or $25 for valet parking) for hotels near or in Waikiki. The hotel is also just outside of Waikiki and the Waikiki Gateway adjacent to the largest shopping mall in Hawaii—Ala Moana Shopping Center.
The Ala Moana Hotel features two towers (Kona and Waikiki) with a nice range of pricing and renovated rooms that are quite attractive and full of eye-popping views of ocean and mountain.
Bottom-line: You cannot go wrong at the Ala Moana. You’ll not only save money on parking and no daily resort or amenity fee, but you’ll save time getting to and from wherever you are going on Oahu. Not only is the shopping center right next door with lots of eateries and a food court, but the expansive Ward Shopping Area is a 5-7 minute walk and it has quite a few terrific places to dine and imbibe. And Kapiolani Blvd. (on the other side of the hotel) is chock full of dining options, most far better and more reasonable than Waikiki.
Another benefit to staying at the Ala Moana is the location, which probably saves 10-12 minutes on every trip coming and going.
You may append any of our Oahu golf vacation packages to your Big Island golf vacation package or Maui golf vacation package. Making a stop in Oahu is a terrific way to begin or — even better — to end your Hawaii golf vacation. You’ll play some terrific golf courses and see many of the sights that have made Hawaii and Oahu famous.
