Wailua Municipal Golf Course & Lydgate Beach Park

November 11, 2009

Today we golfed at Wailua Municipal Golf Course. With its beautiful seaside layout, anytime you can’t see the ocean, you still hear waves crashing.  This is a municipal golf course, so it’s less expensive than the more elaborate championship courses. The total cost for our 18 hole on this fine course was $48.00 for 2 with a cart.  I loved it, the fairways were wonderful, like perfect green carpet with a sponge-like recoil.  The greens here were hard to judge, but after you play here a few times, their nuances become familiar.  Our 18 holes in the hot sun complete, we headed right next door to Lydgate Beach Park, where we enjoyed a beach-side picnic with a cooler of lunch and cold drinks, and a cool dip in the ocean.  Combining a golf day with the fine picnic grounds, and excellent protected swimming area.  Refreshed and replenished, we found firm sand at water’s edge, perfect for a long walk along the beach.
