Makalei Golf Club - Big Island HawaiiFree Course of the Month - March 2010 - The Island of Molokai

Download the PDF here

This month we’re offering not just a single course for download, but an entire chapter! (Of course, there’s only one active course on the island. Doh!) Molokai isn’t exactly a golfing wonderland, especially since the only resort course on the island (Kaluakoi Golf Club) closed right before our book went to print. However, the local’s 9-holer, Ironwood Hills, is absolutely worth playing if you’re in the neighborhood. Check it out.

The lightly populated “Friendly Isle” has a different pulse rate than the other islands in the chain. Molokai remains proudly local, and possesses few of the tourist offerings of the other islands. What it lacks in modern day conveniences, however, it makes up for in beauty, solitude, and the sociability of its people. The two courses on Molokai represent two divergent worlds: the resort-style Kaluakoi Golf Club (which has recently closed indefinitely), with its oceanside links, and the fun and quirky nine-holer at
Ironwood Hills. Molokai is a special place, retaining the slower pace of “Old Hawaii”—signs at the airport urge you “Slow Down, this is Molokai.”
