Ko Olina Golf Club at the JW Marriott Ihlani Hotel, Oahu Hawaii - Dec 2013
Thanks again to my job with Marriott we headed to Hawaii and lucky for us a chance to golf another Marriott resort! My work took us to the island of Oahu where the Ko Olina Golf Club resides.
The golf club and Marriott's JW Hotel is on a beautiful corner of the island called Ihlani and is about 45 minutes from the downtown hustle and bustle. In the upper right of the picture below you can see the lagoons that form a crescent where the hotel is located. The golf club is just down the road.
The course was very pretty - heck - we are in Hawaii, how could it not be! But it did not have many views of the Ocean, so if you are looking for that, try the course on the other side of the Island near where Barack Obama's home is! Coincidentally the Obama family flew in for the holidays the day after we left. We were told by our Helicopter pilot that we had great timing, as we circled the entire island - we would not have been able to do that once the President and family arrived.
It's a nice, somewhat simple course with the highlight of the "waterfall" hole! Relax and enjoy a round on this course while you enjoy this area of the Oahu Island and get away from downtown Honolulu! It is worth the ride for sure! Be sure to stay at the JW - it's a very beautiful and relaxing hotel with a Spa and some lovely restaurants. Enjoy!
