Mike Bailey: Kings' golf course at the Waikoloa Beach Resort in Hawaii passes the test

The test of a good golf course design is if you took away the natural scenery, which is what you almost always get in Hawaii, would it still be a good golf course?

In the case of the Kings' Course at the Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii, the answer is yes. You can check out my review, which we recently posted on HawaiiGolf.com, and find out why.

The Kings' Course is just another example of the fine work of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. Honestly, I've never played a Weiskopf design I didn't like. There always seems to be a good short par 4 or two that makes you think, and the Kings' Course has a couple of those - all surrounded by beautiful black lava fields.
