Best Golf Courses to Play in Honolulu: Leilehua Golf Course

Photo Credit: (

Leilehua Golf Course is a golf course located next to Wheeler Army Airfield. Leilehua used to only be open for military members, but recently they have opened it up to the public (at least for walk-ons).

Leilehua Golf Course is a nice course located on the West Side of Oahu, and it is a bit different from other courses on Oahu. Leilehua has a bunch of trees, and some holes look like they are in the middle of a forest; also, there are no water hazards on the entire course, which is unusual for a Hawaii golf course.

Leilehua is a really good course if you like to walk, as it is flat and the holes are not too far apart from each other. Some of the holes are a bit long though, with the course being about 7000 yards from the furthest tees. The course rating is 73.9 with a slope rating of 129, so it is one of the more difficult courses on Oahu.

While Leilehua is not as nice and well kept as Ko’Olina and Kapolei, it is cheaper (especially if you walk, which you cannot do at the private courses). If you are walking, it costs about $45 to play, which is a good deal for golfing in Hawaii. Just like many other courses on Oahu though, it is far from downtown Hawaii, so unless you are staying on the West Side of the island it will be a bit of a drive.

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
