Are you old enough to remember Blue Hawaii, the “Elvis movie”, as they’re called today?
I was two years away from being born when it was filmed in 1961, but I’ve seen it, several times. I love Elvis movies.
Right now I’m blue because I’m not in Hawaii playing golf, feeling that Kona breeze and soaking up the rays as they can only be soaked in Hawaii.
Think of it this way … there are golf courses and then there are Hawaii golf courses.
From the Old Blue Course at Wailea Golf Club, to Royal Ka’anapali to King Kamehamea there’s just no other place on earth like the Hawaiian islands and there’s just no other place on earth with the amount of championship golf courses like there is in Hawaii.
Mountains, plantations, lush tropical scenery, rain forests, big blue sky, sunshine, beautiful blue water, surfing, clean sandy beaches … I could go on and on about all there is to see and do, but you already know this, you just need to something about it, like head over right now and make travel plans, get some tee times and pack your shorts, sandals, polo’s and clubs.
Even the good folks at Travel+Leisure magazine have called Kauai #2 in their survey for World’s Best Island. Galapagos was #1 and when I was there there were no golf courses.
Travel+Leisure editors calculate the awards on reader input, ranking five qualities: natural attractions, activities and sights, restaurants and food, people and value.
And I think you should too, so head over, check ’em out and tell ’em Mike sent you.
