Ili'ili Country Club
I am still surprised that an island 26 miles long and 3 miles wide would have an 18 hole golf course, but hey, this is Am. Sam. Ben and I try to go on a semi-regular basis (when it is not too hot or pouring rain). The golf action shot. Nice Shot! Without fail it rains. I have not yet played where it has not rained. On the mainland, most people would run into the club house when it is raining, but here we play through it. The blinding rain does make it a bit more challenging and the newly formed water hazards can be difficult, but it is refreshing and normally done after a few holes. I am also not sure if you would want to run into the club house. The other day when we went, we were lucky because Sharon joined us and they recently mowed the fairways. Most times it is difficult to distinguish between the rough and the fairways. I can't tell you how many times Ben and I have lost our golf balls in the fairway. Perhaps the wild dogs take them?The putting greens can vary from good,(that was my chip shot by the way), some are just okaywhile others you just have to ask what the heck!?!I am not sure if it is up to PGA regulations. Regardless, it is a lot of fun, especially the golf carts and you can't beat the views.
