In 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state to join the United States of America and has since become one of the top golf destinations in the world. In addition to having some of the most beautiful beaches and sunsets on Earth, this tropical climate makes Hawaii ideal for golf trips year round.
Hawaii is made up of several islands and golf courses can be found on nearly each one. Almost all of the courses are situated predominately on the coasts, and when significant elevation changes are added to the equation of course layout, Hawaii golf provides breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
Hawaii plays host to the PGA Tour each year, specifically the second largest island of Maui. The Plantation Course at Kapalua hosts all PGA tour winners from the previous year in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. The following week they head south to Honolulu and play The Sony Open at the famous Waialae Country Club, a host of The Hawaian Open since 1965.
